Juleigh Amanda Mayfield was born 47XXY. She has an additional chromosome attached to every pair in her chromosomes chart. Neither male nor female, but a configuration of both sexes. She was raised as a male. With a lack of understanding and education regarding her condition Juleigh struggled with autistic traits, cognitive issues, undiagnosed seizures, learning disabilities, social skills and boundaries.
In addition to being XXY, she was diagnosed with Klinefelter’s Syndrome at the age of 17. Doctor’s told Juleigh that it was the same thing, but it is not. Klinefelter’s Syndrome is a disease of the testicle that materializes in XXY males during puberty. XXY occurs during development in utero.
It’s been a fantastical 2023 for sure over here. To round out the year Juleigh was asked to appear on The Dr. Wendy Walsh Show on IHeart Radio 640am KFI. Dr. Wendy Walsh mentioned Juleigh on a previous episode and told the world that she has followed Juleigh for years on TikTok. Dr. Wendy Walsh is a leading expert on Relationship advice while also teaching Gender studies at a California university. She gushes about Juleigh and calls her a HERO! One of Juleigh’s fans reached out to us here and we were able to make contact with Dr. Walsh! Her episode can be found on IHEART radio on Demand. The show aired on December 31st, 2023. What a GREAT Way to finish 2023 and roll into 2024! We look forward to many more collaborations and the Possibility of Juleigh being hosted in California for some speaking engagements with Dr. Walsh.
