I Am Jazz
I Am Jazz
Transgender teen advocate Jazz Jennings opens up about her most intimate journey yet in the fifth season of TLC’s groundbreaking series I Am Jazz. Twelve years ago, at the age of five, Jazz started her transition to becoming the girl that she has always been, and she dreamed that one day her inner and outer self would be in alignment. This season, that dream becomes a reality and viewers are there every step of the way as Jazz prepares for and experiences the biggest, most personal event of her life – gender confirmation surgery. We also witness other major milestones, including Jazz attending her first prom and celebrating her 18th birthday, while continuing to navigate life’s ups and downs alongside her close-knit and supportive family.
Jazz devotes much of her time advocating for LGBTQ rights, sharing her story with people across America and around the world in an effort to educate and inspire others. She has accumulated many prestigious awards and honors throughout her lifetime, including TIME Magazine's Most Influential Teens (2014 and 2015), The Advocate magazine’s “Top Forty Under 40” annual list, OUT Magazine’s Top 100 list, Teen Vogue’s “21 under 21” list, HRC's Upstander Award for 2017 and the 2015 Trevor Youth Courage Award to name a few.
