“I didn’t like looking in the mirror before I started on testosterone. Now I’m happy with what I see.” – Jamie Raines
Student and Youtube star Jamie Raines was about to turn 18 when he first started taking testosterone. The hormone helps transgender men masculinise their appearance, voice, and body. Here he is on that first day, holding the medication.
