Jazz continues to push forward and wants to share more of her story with fans.

The Struggles of Jazz

When we first saw Jazz on TLC, fans were very receptive to her story. They watched as she received gender reassignment surgery and the changes that came with it. One of the major struggles for Jazz has been her mental health. She has mentioned that she has received a lot of hate online for sharing her story. This hasn’t stopped her though. Jazz is moving past the haters and she and her family are coming back for Season 8!

The last time we saw the TLC star, many changes were happening in her life. She had been accepted into Harvard University and she was ready to start this new chapter of her life. She planned to major in gender studies, religion, and philosophy while studying there. With all of the changes in her life though, she took a break from her education to focus on herself.

She told her fans, “I wanted to share some news. After careful consideration, I have decided to take a break before starting at Harvard. It wasn’t an easy decision, but it is the right one for me. These past few years have been so full and busy that I realized I could use some time to refocus and recenter to be the strongest version of myself.”

This was back in October 2019, so did she ever go to Harvard?

  1. Shame on TLC for producing this show, and promoting and enabling this evil.

    Poor guy. Deluded into believing and living a lie. Paraded around, monetized, and turned into a spoiled, eunich freak with mental and emotional issues whom no one “normal” will ever want because of his mother’s untreated Munchaussen’s by Proxy mental illness, his dad’s spineless cuckedness and a host of deranged, evil people pretending to be professionals who really are only supporting mental illness, experimenting on people like guinea pigs, and butchering of perfectly normal, healthy bodies.

    He’ll never function normally as a man or a woman, will be on expensive hormones and psychoactive drugs for the rest of his life, will never experience real/natural physical pleasure, will never have his own biological children, and will never know what it’s like to “just be himself”. His life, his mind, his body and SO much more have been destroyed and he’s just beginning to realize it.

    No one should be surprised if, at some point, the enormity of how messed-up he is becomes too much to handle and he suicides himself and/or kills/retaliates against those who are responsible for this travesty/crime against his humanity.
