While this "It's a boy" themed party may have been unconventional, it was perfect for Corey Walker.

Corey is a 27-year-old from Florida who’s transitioning from female to male. When he had his first hormone injection his friends wanted to celebrate the special occasion...

So they threw him an ‘it’s a boy’ party! Complete with syringes filled with Jello shots to symbolize his injections -- and blue and white decorations.

In a blog post on Love What Matters, Corey explained how difficult it was for him to comprehend and share his feelings. That was, until moving to Michigan for college, which opened his mind and heart by being surrounded by more like-minded individuals and diversity helping him realize sexuality was completely separate from gender identity.

Corey told Radio.com that his best friend from college even flew down from Michigan for the party and that the entire night was perfect.

"The response has been great," Corey says. "Lots of messages of support!"
