NikkieTutorials Comes Out as Transgender 

 

For many of us who didn’t know nor realize it, NikkieTutorials has finally decided to reveal her truth in light of online blackmail and harassment: she is transgender.

Fans and even people who don’t keep up with Nikkie de Jager’s career in beauty showered their support for Nikkie’s emotional reveal. She came out to the world on Monday, according to a report by BBC News, and there, the 25-year-old Netherlands beauty YouTuber told her many followers that she’s decided to go public after she was threatened.

In the video, she opened up about how her journey had been, sharing that she had known even at a young age that she was born in the wrong body. 

“When I was younger, I was born in the wrong body, which means that I am transgender now,” she said in the video. She added that she credits her family for helping her throughout the process and said that they have already supported her at the age of six. 

She was allowed to grow out her hair and by seven or eight was exclusively wearing female clothing. At age 14, she was already taking hormone suppressors and was able to fully transition by age 19. 

Nikkie expressed that finally revealing everything now felt so liberating for her, seeing as how she has been keeping the secret for 11 years. 

She also addressed those who threatened her via her video. She raised a middle-finger gesture to them and simply said, “This one’s for you.”

Nikkie garnered much praise and support after the video and aptly so. She also imparted a meaningful message to anyone who is still feeling the pressure of society to not live their truth the way they want to. To them, she said: “If you feel like you’re trapped and there’s no way out, know that it gets better. Trust me, it gets better.”
