One of our favourite beauty Youtubers has just come out as transgender.
NikkieTutorials, who is known for her stunning makeup looks and amazing tutorials, got honest today in a video.
“Filming this video scary, but it’s so liberating and freeing,” said Nikkie Tutorials, whose real name is Nikkie De Jager.
“I’ve been wanting to share this side of myself to all of you for so long but I could never figure out the timing.”
“Yes I am transgender,” Nikkie said. “But at the end of the day I am me.”
The Youtuber went on to explain that she transitioned when she was around fourteen and had lots of support from her mother.
She added that while she did plan on sharing this with subscribers at some point, she wanted her content to be the focus of her channel.
“I wanted the art to do the speaking for me,” she explained.
Sadly, Nikkie did not plan on sharing this personal information today, but was blackmailed. She responded to the blackmailer by saying: “I am free, and today I get to be me.”
