2. This Teen Came Out, And Made it On The News

A mother named Luchina Fisher found a note from her 11-year old son, “G”, that said, “Dear Mother and Father, can we move to a different country because I think I don’t want to be a boy lots of times … We’ll discuss later.” Luchina said that since G was only 2 years old, they knew that their son was identifying as female. But at age 11, this was the first time that G really expressed directly that they were feeling like they needed to escape with a new life in a new body. Luchina knew for years that it was true. She was mostly saddened for her child, knowing that she was so miserable in her body, she felt like moving to a new country to start over. 

The family made a plan. Instead of moving or transferring G to a new school, they reached out to the superintendent, who trained the teachers. They also sent G- now “Gia”, to a girl’s summer camp so she could experience living as a girl for the first time. This made Gia incredibly happy. She was able to start middle school as her true self. They sent a letter to the entire school. The response was full of love. They received calls, emails, and texts all congratulating Gia on her transition. The response from the entire community was so loving, the story ended up on Good Morning America.

1. One of the Most Famous Coming Out Stories Recently

In January of 2020, a YouTuber called Nikkie Tutorials came out as transgender. She was being blackmailed by someone, threatening to expose her secret if she didn’t pay them. Instead of giving in to their demands, she decided to come out online of her own accord. In the video, she explained that she knew she was female from an early age. Her mother allowed her to get on hormone treatments at such a young age, she can easily pass as being female to the point where no one has ever questioned her gender. The video now has 37 million views.

This story started out as a bad one. But Nikkie took her power back. She didn’t allow the fear to stop her from being true to herself. And by coming out, she inspired so many people. Since releasing the video, she was accepted with open arms, and was interviewed around the world to share her story.
