“I finally want to reveal a part of my life that made me what I am”
She is known for creating makeup looks on the stars of A-List, from Reese Witherspoon to Kim Kardashian and Lady Gaga. But on Monday, Jager beauty YouTuber Nikkie posted an unexpected video on her YouTube channel, NikkieTutorials.
Titled “I’m Going Out”, Nikkie has revealed that she is transgender for her millions of fans. “I have to tell you something,” she begins. “It’s a whole new year. We are in 2020 and I want to start the year with the truth. Finally, I want to reveal a part of my life that made me what I am… I can’t believe I’m saying that today, but damn, it feels good to finally do it. When I was younger, I was born in the wrong body, which means that I am transgender. “
She pauses and looks moved, before continuing: “It’s so surreal to say that. Filming this video is scary, but it’s so liberating and liberating. “
The 25-year-old from the Netherlands continued: “I want to inspire little Nikkies around the world who feel in danger, who feel out of place, who feel misunderstood. I hope that when I get up it will inspire others to do the same. We have to accept each other, we have to respect each other. “
Reflecting on her childhood, she meditated: “When my mother was pregnant, she later told me that she was convinced that she had a daughter. Ever since I was born, I always thought I was a girl… My mother immediately knew that I was going to be gay or some other type of story. And it turned out to be a different type of story. “
YouTuber’s influential voice cracked as she thanked her mother for supporting, accepting, understanding, listening to and respecting her. She also revealed during the 17-minute video that at the age of six, she had grown up a long time and that at seven, she only wore female clothes. “I took growth hormone plugs at the age of 14 and by 19 I had completely transitioned,” she added.
During the video – which quickly drew over 15 million views – Nikkie also talked about her fiancé Dylan, with whom she got engaged during a trip to Italy in August 2019. She affectionately nicknamed him “ the kindest hearted man, ” and admitted he “didn’t know” his past when they met. “I wish I had told him earlier, but I was afraid of losing him if I told him my whole story,” she added.
Surprisingly, Nikkie told fans that his decision to share his “ truth ” was forced by someone who was trying to “ blackmail ” and reveal it publicly, and at one point, she address to people who, according to her, threaten her and make a gesture of full age. “This is for you,” she says.
Known as NikkieTutorials, she is one of the most influential names in the platform’s beauty community. She has shared tutorials and makeup reviews for 11 years and has nearly 13 million subscribers.
“If you feel trapped and there is no way out, know that it’s better. Believe me, it’s better,” she said calmly at the end of the video.
