Who’s your Daddi? Jack Ingraham’s brave gender transition at almost 60 years old

Until Chaz Bono came out as a transgender man in 2009, transgender people had little-to-no representation in mainstream media.

In a 2014 interview with “U.S. News and World Report”, GLAAD’s associate director of entertainment media, Matt Kane said, “What we’ve noticed is that in many ways transgender representation is still 20 years behind where the LGB representation is today.”

Despite the underrepresentation, more and more people are feeling comfortable enough to come out as transgender nowadays, including Metro Atlanta area resident, Jack Ingraham.

Now 60-years-old, Ingraham, a.k.a. “Jack Daddi”, came out as transgender two years ago, at 58. Making the gender transition later in life is uncommon in the transgender community because of the health risks associated with taking hormones and undergoing surgery. But to Jack, the reward of living as male, his true gender identity, outweighs any of the risks.
