YouTuber NikkieTutorials comes out as trans

YouTuber NikkieTutorials comes out as trans”

On Monday, she posted a 17 minute video titled "I'm Coming Out" on her Youtube channel. "And it looks like that chance has been taken away from me". "I am here to openly share that I am transgender, and with this message I want to inspire little Nikkie's around the world who feel insecure, who feel out of place, who feel misunderstood - I hope by me standing up and being free that it inspires others to do the same, to truly live your life like you want it and the way you deserve it". "When I was younger, I was born in the wrong body, which means I'm transgender". Now, so surreal saying this. "If you feel like you're trapped and there's no way out know that it gets better", she says as she closes the video.

"I am NikkieTutorials and I am Nikkie", she continued. We need to accept each other. If we are going to put a label on it, yes, I am transgender. "At the end of the day I am still Nikkie". "And at the end of the day, you are you".

"I am free, and today I get to be me", she said.

Unfortunately, de Jager explained that she felt forced into coming out as a result of people blackmailing her and threatening to out her to the press. "All of me was girly". And I know you are watching this. "And it turned out to be a different type of story".

De Jager started the video by saying she did not expect to tell her subscribers this today.

In telling her story, the YouTube star touched on her current affairs on those she loves, thanking her mother, family, and friends for the support that they have shown for her transition and life in her past. By the time I was 14, I got my hormones because I'm a tall b**** and I kept on growing. She said she fully transitioned by the age of 19. "I transitioned while on YouTube". "I am so proud of u! i know how hard it is.to see u out and living ur truth has brought me to tears! u don't know how many people ur inspiring and helping by sharing ur story. i am one of them! she said WOMAN".

She went on to state: "They said they wanted to leak this because I am lying or because I am scared to know who I really am".

Though the YouTuber says she fully transitioned by the age of 19, she made a decision to share her journey for the first time in 2020 after allegedly being blackmailed by people who threatened to share her story with the press. No more holding back.

Nikkie says the reason why she has come out on YouTube is because she was being blackmailed.
