1. Nikkie De Jager
Nikkie De Jager, who is known to fans on YouTube as NikkieTutorials, came out as transgender via a video on her popular channel. “Filming this video scary, but it’s so liberating and freeing,” she said at the beginning of the video. “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.”
The 25-year-old makeup artist and beauty vlogger revealed that she was “born in the wrong body” and started identifying as a girl at age six. When she was 14, Nikkie started hormones and used growth stoppers to prevent her from becoming taller. When she was 19 and while she was already making YouTube videos, Nikkie fully transitioned. “Yes I am transgender,” she said. “But at the end of the day I am me.”
