I Am Jazz star Jazz Jennings’ parents are having second thoughts about their daughter speaking to conservative political commentator, Tomi Lahren. There’s no denying Tomi Lahren has some pretty conservative views, and she’s spoken out about her opinion on transgender people. However, Jazz has a pretty thick skin herself. If want to learn more about Jazz Jennings from I Am Jazz, then take a look at our Jazz Jennings wiki!

Jazz Jennings’ Wiki

Jazz Jennings was born on October 6, 2000, which makes her age 16. Jennings was born in South Florida to Jeanette and Greg Jennings. “Jennings” is a pseudonym because they have “a very Jewish, long last name.” Jazz Jennings’ brothers, Griffen and Sander, are twins who are older than her. They are very protective of their baby sister and support her in everything she does. She also has an older sister named Ari.

Though born male, Jazz faced gender identity disorder when she was just four years old, making her one of the youngest members of the transgender community to become famous. Her family chose gender-neutral clothing for her when they went out, but Jazz always wanted to dress up in female clothes. In an interview, her mother explained that Jazz would take off her onesies to make it look like a dress. When her parents would praise her saying “good boy,” she would correct them by saying, “good girl.”

Jazz Jennings’ Accomplishments


When Jazz was only six years old, her family started making appearances on different television shows to speak about the difficulties of growing up as transgender. Her story was highly covered by shows like The Rosie Show and 20/20.

Jazz Jennings’ grandparents and parents are very supportive of her life and transition. In 2007, Jazz and her parents started the TransKids Purple Rainbow Foundation to help support transgender youth. Her case has been highly publicized and, in 2011, she and her family starred in the documentary I Am Jazz: A Family in Transition, which aired on the Oprah Winfrey Network.

Although Jazz is just 16 years old, she has accomplished a lot, and with the support of her parents, she’s done a lot of good work for her community. In 2013, she started Purple Rainbow Tails, where she fashions and styles rubber mermaid tails to help raise money for transgender kids.

That same year, in an interview on 20/20 with Barbara Walters, she opened up about her two-and-a-half-year struggle with the United States Soccer Federation, which did not allow Jazz to play on the girls’ team. With the help of the National Center for Lesbian Rights, Jazz was successful in changing the policy, allowing trans students to play. Additionally, she co-wrote a children’s book, I Am Jazz with Jessica Herthel.
