Jaimie Wilson took the internet by storm when he documented his incredible transition from female to male.

The 20-year-old country musician, from Ann Arbor in the United States, lived as a woman for 18 years before coming out as transgender and going through a full transition.

On Instagram, he shared how people didn't believe him when he came out because of how "feminine" he was as a woman.

"When I came out people refused to believe I was a man because of how ‘feminine’ I presented for 18 years," he wrote in a caption.

"So why am I posting this comparison? Because I want people to see it doesn’t matter what some looks like... if someone has the guts to tell you ‘I’m transgender’ ‘I’m gay’ ‘I’m bisexual’ anything like that please believe them and be there for them because stereotypes need to be broken."

Jamie has shared his breast removal recovery on his Instagram and also documented his voice change through a period of three months.

Reposting because it got reported and taken off Instagram yesterday….So I re did it but this time blocked out the nipples ( even tho it's the exact same nipple ??) for those people who have a problem with it. Anyway I have been very hesitant to post this because of my before picture. But I want to share my results with keyhole surgery, and how happy I am with my outcome. I don't like to be vulnerable, but I think it's important to share. please don't report this post, this is for educational purposes. #ftm #transman #transgender #transguy #transformationtuesday #lgbt #gay #lesbian #loveislove #homo #pride #selfie #shirtlessguys #selflove #style #bodypositivity #loveyourself #vitamint #femaletomale #topsurgery #postop #transpride #transandproud A post shared by Jaimie Wilson (@tboy61915) on

Since coming out and sharing his story, Jamie has received many messages of encouragement and people have been inspired by his story.

Unfortunately, his loved ones were not as supportive of his decision.

"Coming out as transgender was the best and worst day of my life thus far. "

"I miss having my family in my life... I miss my parents being proud of me... but you know what I don't miss? I don't miss the nights I laid alone battling with my feelings... I don't miss waiting for everyone to leave the house so I could put on masculine clothes and tuck my long hair under a hat... I don't miss hiding." he wrote in a Facebook post
