If you have been following the YouTube star Nikkie de Jager and her beauty channel Nikkie Tutorial then this may come as a shock and surprise for you all. Known to be a beauty Guru, Nikkie de Jager has come out as a transgender. Yes, that’s right! Posting a video of herself, Nikkie made a revelation and said that she was blackmailed by people who already knew that she was a transgender and wanted to sell her story to the media.
The video starts with the YouTuber saying, “Today I am here to share something with you that I’ve always wanted to share with you one day, but under my own circumstances. And it looks like that chance has been taken away from me. So today I am taking back my own power. I want to start the year off with the truth, I want to start the year off by finally revealing a part of my life that has made me who I am. I want to talk about a part of myself that makes me, me. I can’t believe I’m saying this today to all of you for the entire world to see but damn it feels good to finally do it.”
She then began off saying, “When I was younger, I was born in the wrong body which means that I am transgender. Now, so surreal saying this. Filming this video is scary but it feels so liberating and freeing. I am NikkieTutorials and I am Nikkie. I am me. We don’t need labels. If we are going to put a label on it, yes, I am transgender. But at the end of the day, I am me. And at the end of the day, you are you.” Watch the video:
De Jager’s video 17-minute long video has already garnered around 12 million views and about 1.95 lakh comments.
