After getting inspired by the slew of brave people who have come out as transgender over the past few years–specifically Jazz Jennings–one family made the decision to go through the sometimes challenging process of transition.
Eric Maison and his daughter, 15-year-old Corey, were actually born as mother and son. Corey who had always identified as a girl started the transition first, which inspired her mother who was born with the name Erica to transition as well.
Eric explained that he had always felt trapped and identified with men, but he never knew that it was possible that he could actually be one.

Corey is one of five other children all born to Erica who had never felt comfortable in her own skin.
After watching the television documentary series on transgender girl Jazz Jennings, Corey immediately realized that she was the same way.
‘Wow, I’m just like her,’ Corey recalls saying. ‘I’m a girl trapped in a boy’s body.’ She explained that she would always act and pose very girly growing up. This is Jazz with a photo of what she looked like before transitioning.
That’s when Eric gave Corey one of the best gifts she could receive, which was her first set of hormones to begin transitioning.
