There are over 1.4 million adults in the United states who identify as transgender.
WTMJ’s Melissa Barclay sat down with 62-year-old Jayne Korth, a transgender woman, to learn what it was like to transition from male to female and cut through the stigma attached to being transgender during Pride Month.
“I have a female brain. I’ve always thought like a woman thinks, 100%. Unfortunately my body came with the wrong accessories and every woman knows it’s all about the accessories,” Jayne says with a smile.
She knew from a very young age that she felt different.
“A lot of transgender people from my age will tell you the same thing, you knew you were different but you didn’t know what.”
