The series follows everyday life of Jazz Jennings – a transgender girl. Except for her transgender issue, the family has to deal with troubles of her emotional state of a typical growing teenager. Being a transgender youth is twice as difficult. The series started on the 15th of July 2015. I Am Jazz season 3 release date hasn’t been announced yet.
You will never know what surprise nature can get you. The central person of the project is named Jazz Jennings together with other members of the cast – the Jennings family. Jazz is a typical teenager from South Florida. However, there’s a thing that makes this teen extremely peculiar. Jazz was born a boy from the physical point of view. However, when he was four years old, he was diagnosed with gender dysphoria. It made Jazz one of the youngest people in the world suffering from gender dysphoria.
Greg and Jeanette, parents of Jazz, realized that they need to be a support to her female personality. At five years old, she became a true female from both interior and exterior. In 2007, Barbara Walters had Jazz interviewed about her identity – at this very moment Jazz got her worldwide popularity. She participated in publishing of a book about her titled I Am Jazz. Besides, she’s a popular YouTube blogger.
I Am Jazz follows the Jennings family and their usual life. Jazz goes to high school, facing the challenge of being a transgender among other teenagers at school. All members of her family share their points of view on Jazz and her gender issue. In every new episode, they share their worries about their beloved child and her future.
The filming of the series was done all days of the week including the weekend. The initial title of the show was All That Jazz; however, later it was changed for I Am Jazz. The title is taken from a documentary released in 2011 titled I Am Jazz: A Family in Transition. The release of the film was carried out by OWN.
Critic Brian Lowry says that sensitively makes the series admirable. It’s simple and hearty, capturing a hard challenge of personal gender identity. At times, it looks like an educational process. James Poniewozik calls I Am Jazz a captivating story of a transitioned teenager. However, this story is a lot more than a story of a single person. Jazz herself is very open-minded with a lot of honesty and humor.
