YouTuber NikkieTutorials blackmailed into coming out as transgender: 'I am still me'

Nikkie de Jager, or as she's more widely known, NikkieTutorials, uploaded a video onto her YouTube channel last night to tell the world that she is transgender.

Dutch YouTube celebrity Nikkie de Jager, whose make-up advice channel NikkieTutorials has millions of followers around the world, has come out as transgender, saying she took the decision to share her story after receiving a blackmail threat. "Thank you. I'm gonna take today to just read everything, take it all in, process and be free".

The makeup maven also revealed she shared her truth with her fiancé, Dylan, and that the couple - who have largely kept their relationship private and off of the socials - were working through it privately. I am Nikkie Tutorials, and I am Nikkie. "It's so surreal to say this".

She continued, "I have changed, because, damn, does this feel liberating and freeing".

"I've always wanted to share this side of my story", she said.

"Planet Earth is stuffed with labels, and I by no methodology felt joyful with labels".

Nikkie explains that she began dressing as a girl from a young age with the full support from her mother.

De Jager said she didn't reveal that she was transgender to her 12.4 million YouTube subscribers earlier because she "wanted my channel to be about my art".

In 2008, the then-teenage girl filmed a video titled "My first official Look for YT" after being inspired by the MTV reality show The Hills. But she also said what really bothered her was the company making changes that she wasn't aware of. Nonetheless on the end of the day, I'm me.

But she said a recent blackmail attempt forced her hand. "I've literally grown up and transformed into me in front of all of you", de Jager explained that she transitioned fully by the time she was 19 when she had already started filming YouTube videos. "Trust me, it gets better".

"Yes, I am a transgender", said De Jäger, "but at the end of the day, I am me".

"NO ONE has the right to out anybody else". Followers know the love birds acquired engaged over the summer time season, when Dylan proposed to de Jager all through a romantic journey to Italy. "Period. Coming out is a personal thing, and you do not get to decide that for someone else", she wrote on Twitter.
