He began documenting his transition by taking a selfie every day for a year, which ultimately turned into three years.

“I initially intended to just do it for the first year…but then I didn’t get any facial hair in my first year,” he told BuzzFeed.

At first, changes to Raines’ appearance were subtle.


But during the second year of his testosterone therapy, Jamie really began to notice prominent changes to his appearance.

“My face started to get longer and I lost the chubby cheeks,” he said.

He began to notice changes to the shape of his nose.


After two years of therapy, he began to grow facial hair.


“I was waiting for it once I first started getting a couple of chin hairs,” Jamie said. “It was really exciting.
