About Jack Ori

I'm a transgender man who loves sharing my story to help others.

Prior to my gender transition in 2012, I was the self-proclaimed “king of invisibility.” I didn’t think anyone even noticed me or would miss me if I was gone and bounced around from one unhealthy relationship and minimum wage job to another without any real purpose.

That’s why I don’t mind sharing my story with people who may not be familiar with transgender issues. I don’t believe in the idea that it’s not my job to educate others. How can anyone learn what transgender people need and want if we won’t talk to them?

I have spoken in front of parent groups such as PFLAAG as well as on tons of podcasts, including The Impactful Parent and A Wonderful Chaos. I’ve also presented at summits such as The Strong Willed Child 2021 Summer Summit.

Some of the most popular topics  I speak about include:

  • My transgender story — what it was like for me growing up transgender and closeted, what led me to transition, and how life has changed for me since
  • Tips for parents of transgender kids who want to support their children’s authentic identities
  • How I use my experiences to write novels about young (cisgender) women who refuse to be defined by their trauma
  • The similarities between gender transition and other types of major life changes.
