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.
