Transgender Man Shares Unrecognizable Before And After Photos Of His Transition

Even in our modern world, coming out as transgender is an extremely hard thing to do. Despite several positive steps being taken towards promoting LGBTQ+ rights, there's still a lot of ignorance that surrounds transgender people.


Somebody who knows very well how emotionally turbulent it is to come out as transgender is Jaimie Wilson.

21-year-old Jaimie might be a multi-talented musician, DJ, and model, but the idea of fulfilling his dreams, while at the same time living as his authentic self, used to be unthinkable in his teenage years, as he was suffering from gender dysphoria.

Nevertheless, the young man from Ann Arbor, Michigan, has turned the tables, and he's never felt more confident.

To inspire other individuals like him, Jamie has shared a series of before and after pictures of his striking transition. The pictures show how the up-and-coming musician and model transformed from a conventionally attractive girl to a heart-throbbingly handsome young man.

In a tell-all interview with UNILAD, Jaimie revealed how he felt when he first realized he was transgender. Due to his upbringing in a conservative family, he needed to hide who he was and never openly introduced himself in a masculine way.

“When I was 15, I knew for a fact that I was male,” he said. “But because I grew up in a very conservative religious household, I had to put my identity and feelings aside until I was able to be on my own. I knew the situation would not have been good, or safe, if I came out that young.”

“I would go to the store and shop in the men’s section. I took every opportunity I had to put on masculine clothing and stare into the mirror.”

“I had a drawer in my bedroom in which I kept all my masculine clothes, and I’d carefully put a layer of feminine clothes over the top so that if my parents went through my room, they wouldn’t find them.”

Jaimie’s situation seemed hopeless for a long time because he couldn't tell anybody about the emotional turmoil he had been experiencing.


“Honestly, it was extremely scary because I didn’t think I’d ever be able to transition,” he said. “I thought it was something I would have to live with for the rest of my life. I didn’t tell anyone how I was feeling because I was afraid of losing everyone.”


Luckily, Jaimie reached a point in his life where he felt brave enough to begin the long expensive and risky process of transitioning from woman to man, and he has never looked back since starting his journey

“Transitioning for me physically was the best feeling,” Jaimie revealed. “I remember cutting my long hair off and how, although the world remained the same, it felt like a whole new one! Emotionally, I felt content and noticed my social anxiety and stress level sort of just disappeared.”


“I became a more happy and lively person. I became me.”

Cutting off his hair to have a more boyish appearance was the least of his anxieties. Eventually, he began taking the male hormone testosterone to develop more male secondary sex characteristics.


He said: “Starting hormones was such a relief in a way. It was like living 19 years of your life as someone else, and then getting this magical juice that makes you look, sound, and feel like who you always have envisioned in your head.”

“I lost many friends when I first came out. I think they only feared what others would think. I came out in high school, where there is so much pressure to fit in, and being my friend wasn’t exactly viewed as normal.”


“I look at it this way, I only changed my appearance, so anyone who disowns me because of my transition clearly only liked me for how I looked on the outside, not who I am on the inside… because that didn’t change.”

The notion of ‘passing’ is a particularly dangerous territory in the trans community. Contrary to what many would think, trans people don't necessarily need to physically transition to legitimately refer to themselves as a gender that's different from the one they were assigned at birth.

“The most damaging stereotype people have of me is that I have not always ‘looked’ the part,” Jaimie said. “There are no ‘signs’ to be transgender.”


“It may sound crazy, but I didn’t need to ‘come to terms’ with my body. The image I had in my head for so long of how I was supposed to look was finally a reality. I don’t feel like I was put into a new body. I just made the one I was given my home.”


One of the most difficult things that those who transition have to deal with is the possibility of losing their loved ones. Sadly, that's something that Jaimie experienced when he finally found the strength to come out as transgender.

“The hardest part of my transition has been losing my family. Growing up I was told that family will always accept and love one another for who they are. I had to face the facts that the things I was told growing up, and the love I was shown was false,” Jaimie said.


“I remember the night I showed up at home with my hair cut and masculine clothes on, my mom said, ‘I don’t care that you like girls, but why do you have to look like this?'”


“That hit me pretty hard, she was essentially saying that she is only concerned with my outward appearance… Something no parent should be judging their child for, or anyone for that matter.”


“Even if you were raised the same as I was, don’t think that you need to spend your entire life trying to please your family. Be you, and a true family will love and accept you for who you are. In the end, I didn’t lose family. I lost people that share the same blood as me.”


Jaimie Wilson is a real inspiration to LGBTQ+ people across the world. He knows who he truly is and is completely comfortable in his skin.


Like Jaimie, other people who identify as transgender typically realize it when they’re still very young. Here is the story of a little boy called Jack, who was born a girl. Watch it and learn about how his parents dealt with that situation:



Let's wish Jaimie all the best for the future.

  1. After being in relationship with him for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster Dr Oriafo that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the Dr Oriafo and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days my ex will come back begging. I thanked him in earnest hoping he will come back to me because I miss him so much.To my very surprise on the 3rd day he came back begging and asking me to accept him back and he will never leave me again. All this would never had been possible but for Dr Oriafo I will always and forever recommend you to the world Dr Oriafo This is his contact below: [email protected] or call +13103599685
