Author Video Description


NEV came out as a trans male at the age of 13. When he was 15 years old, he met Jazmine and started a relationship. Jazmine had a daughter, Naomi, who was five months old when Nev met her and then became her stepdad. Jazmine said: “Naomi definitely took a liking to his chains and jewellery that he wore. She just grew a connection to him right away.” Nev started sharing his story on social media and while he’s received a lot of support, he’s also received judgement. He explained: “I don’t get as much hate for being a teen parent as I do for being a trans parent.” Initially, Nev’s dad, Korey, had reservations about him becoming a dad as a teen but is proud of Nev’s maturity and resilience. The now 18-year-old said: “I feel blessed to be a father.”
