A year after Jamie Raines told his family that he was transgender, he began hormone therapy to help him transition. The testosterone treatments were sure to change him beyond all recognition, so he took a selfie each day to mark his progress. Then, three years into the process, he decided to put all the pictures together in a video – and the result was incredible.
Raines, who is from Colchester in Essex, England, was just four years old when he started to realize that he was male rather than female. Recalling that confusing time of his life, he told the Daily Mail in 2015, “I remember thinking I was just like any other boy. Then as I grew older, I realized more and more that I was different.”
