"Ever since I could express myself, I always knew I was a girl."
So said Jazz, an 11-year-old boy who was raised as a girl and is now going through puberty as a female. Early on, her mother said, she sought medical help and was devastated that her child's ideas about gender identity were a diagnosed disorder. Indeed, psychological and medical opinions about transgender kids are "all over the place," Dr. Johanna Olson said. In medical schools, the discussions are just starting.
Jazz's story is featured in the documentary "I am Jazz: A Family in Transition," which will appear on OWN on November 27.
