Transitioning to Happy | Jeremy Wallace | TEDxUNLV

Jeremy Wallace gives us a glimpse into his journey of transition and becoming a man, later in life. Through this process, he not only found his true self, but also what it feels like to be authentically happy. Jeremy Wallace is an author and speaker. His book, Taking The Scenic Route To Manhood, takes readers through his journey of transitioning from female-to-male, and sheds light on some of the struggles, fears, and light-hearted moments he experienced, even from a young age. Jeremy is passionate about sharing his personal story in hopes of supporting those who may be struggling with their own gender identity, educating those who may not know much about transgender issues, and advocating for more inclusion and compassion towards those who may be thought of, as different. Jeremy speaks to groups, organizations, and universities, bringing the message that, no matter what changes lie ahead, we all have the capability to overcome obstacles, live up to our full potential, and most importantly, find our true happiness. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
