NikkiTutorials is a very popular and beloved YouTuber makeup guru. Her real name is Nikkie de Jager, and she recently came out as a transgender woman in a video.
The beauty queen from the Netherlands has been on YouTube for more than 11 years, and she currently has more than 13 million subscribers. The reason she is sharing that information now, however, is very sad. She said in the video that some jerks have been blackmailing her, and she wanted to take back control of her own narrative, so she wanted to share that information by herself.
She said that she wanted to start the year off by finally revealing a part of her life that has made her who she is.
Nikkie said that she’s taking back her own power, and she asked her viewers to understand her story. She said that she was born in the wrong body, which means that she’s a transgender. She added that filming that video was very scary for her, but it was very liberating and freeing at the same time. And, at the end of the day, she’s still Nikkie.
Nikkie said that she wasn’t hiding the fact that she’s a transgender woman, and that she always wanted to share the fact about who she is, but the “chance was taken away from her”. She said that she was blackmailed by some evil people who wanted to leak her story to the press and destroy her life, but Nikkie finally decided to take back control – and she’s now proud of it.
The internet was very supportive of her story and full of love for her, and her fans reassured her that, of course, they still love her! To add to that, they believe her story and her message would only help others feel less alone, which is very important to so many trans kids, teens, and adults who struggle.
