( - Rep. Jackie Speier (D.-Calif.) went to the House floor on February 28 and along with her colleague Rep. Angie Craig (D.-Minn.) read to her colleagues from a book titled “I Am Jazz.”

“It’ is a book about a transsexual young boy who becomes a young girl,” Speier explained at the beginning of her speech.

“I am Jazz,” Speier said from the podium at the front of the House chamber.

“For as long as I can remember, my favorite color has been pink,” she said, reading from the manuscript. “My second-favorite color is silver and my third favorite color is green.

“Here are some of my other favorite things: dancing, singing, back flips, drawing, soccer, swimming, makeup, and pretending I'm a pop star,” Speier continued.

“Most of all, I love mermaids. Sometimes I even wear a mermaid tail in the pool,” Speier said reading from the text.

“My best friends are Samantha and Casey. We always have fun together. We like high heels and princess gowns, or cartwheels and trampolines,” she said.

“But I am not exactly like Samantha and Casey,” Speier said, reading from the text.

“I have a girl brain but a boy body. This is called transgender. I was born this way,” she said.
