Emerging in 2015 as his true self, Jaimie Wilson, better known as Tboy on Instagram, began to publicly document his medical and social transition, from being assigned female to becoming the authentic male he is. Being born into a very religious and conservative family, coming out as trans was anything but easy. Jaimie found that creating music helped him work through his emotions and talk about things that he might otherwise not be able to. “I take these life experiences and put them all in my music, the good and the bad” Jaimie states in an interview with New York Times. He credits his loyal followers on both Instagram and TikTok for helping make his music dreams become his reality.
