Seth Rainess lived a lie most of his life, a lie no one else should have to live.
That's when he transitioned from female to male, leaving behind an unhappy life in which he could not be who he wanted to be:
He is a PFLAG Jersey Shore facilitator and board member and serves on the advisory board of Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's Gender Development and Sexuality Clinic. In addition, he is a member of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health.
Having grown up when the word transgender was virtually unknown, Seth feels a particular affinity for transgender teenagers. That is why in 2016, he authored Real Talk for Teens: A Jump-Start Guide to Gender Transitioning and Beyond. It is the first book on transitioning written explicitly for a teenage audience ( and ironically read by more adults); now ranked Top 5 on Amazon. Professionals are also recommending the book to anyone associated with the transgender community.
