Angelika wears padding every day to add curves to her hips, but she still has some masculine characteristics. "Yes, I do have an Adam's apple and sometimes you can see it. But for the most part, my chin kind of hides it a little bit."
At age 16, Jake had surgery to remove his breasts. Before that, he would bind them every day. "It's so much easier now to pick out what I want to wear because I don't have to worry about if my chest is showing or not," he says.
Both Jake and Angelika take hormones. Angelika says she has to take testosterone blocker pills four times a day. Jake must inject himself with hormones every two weeks. "It's kind of routine now," he says. Jake now uses men's soap and has learned to shave. "When I was growing up, I really wasn't thinking about it. I used to just pretend to shave with my dad," he says.
