transphobia, misgendering, deadnaming

Jack and Yaya met as toddlers through their shared backyard fence. They spent their childhood together, building forts and burning trash cans in their small hometown in New Jersey. They remain best friends and support each other as they both come out as transgender. We follow Jack only a few years into his transition, struggling to decide whether to move forward with a gender-affirming surgery, while Yaya tackles the bureaucratic nightmare of legally changing her name in New Jersey.
