Denise Andrews, Arin Andrews, Katie Hill, and Jazzlyn Hill
Imagine this: two kids undergoing transgender transformations meet at a support group, develop a friendship, and fall in love. Their moms become the best of friends during the process. And then, when the kids finally feel comfortable in their skin and their love affair goes viral, they break up. That's just part of the fascinating story of Oklahoma teens Arin Andrews, 18, and Katie Hill, 19.
Andrews was in the process of transitioning from female to male when he met Hill, who was undergoing her own transformation from male to female. Their moms, Denise Andrews and Jazzlyn Hill, were there every step of the way ... but it wasn't easy.
On September 30, both Arin and Katie will release memoirs about their transitions -- Some Assembly Required and Rethinking Normal. The Stir sat down with Denise and Jazzlyn to get their story before the books' release date.
