WATCH: Daily Diary of One Trans Man's 'Awesome' Transformation

WATCH: Daily Diary of One Trans Man's 'Awesome' Transformation


By taking one selfie every day for three years and compiling them into a YouTube video, Jami Raines has shown the world how testosterone changed his life.

At 21 years old, trans man Jami Raines is already an internet sensation with more than a dozen YouTube videos watched by tens of thousands. But thanks to the attention he's garnered from BuzzFeed's UK-based LGBT editor about his FTM Transition Timeline video, which he uploaded 10 months ago, Raines is now a viral star.

"Hey, my name is Jami," says Raines at the start of the video and the start of the timeline, and then says it again in a distinctly deeper voice, his face visibly masculinized by testosterone. "I am 2 years, 10 months on T."

The difference is dramatic, and as Raines himself described it on Day 123, "pretty awesome."

His slideshow and compilation of nearly three years of side by side and time dissolve comparison photographs has been viewed more than 115,000 times.

"I initially intended to just do it for the first year," Raines told BuzzFeed. "But then I didn't get any facial hair in my first year." So he kept at it, and chronicled his changes online.

On Tumblr, Raines maintains a page called Pinnochioboy, and answers questions ranging from does he have an Instagram account (no) to whether he's considered bottom surgery (same answer).
