For the second consecutive year, our fave transteen Jazz Jennings has been named to the TIME Magazine 30 Most Influential TeensList.
It’s a list that includes such lofty company as Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai, First Daughter Malia Obama, Jaden Smith, Ahmed Mohamed and actresses Amandla Sternberg, Rowan Blanchard and Zendaya Coleman.
Y’all know I’m ride or die for our now 15 year old high schooler, and have been ever since she entered our consciousness as a 5 year old being interviewed on 20/20 by Barbara Walters.
This summer the I Am Jazz reality show on TLC was a big hit, and was broadcast on Discovery Familia with Spanish subtitles.
I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and spending some quality time with her and her wonderful family, and Jazz continues to be the amazing advocate and role model she has been for our community and our trans teens.
Congratulations again to our trailblazing transteen for making the TIME magazine list for the second year, and hope you’re having a wonderful first year of high school.
