NikkieTutorials: “I’m coming out”



“I was born in the wrong body, which means that I am transgender”

- says she’s wanted to talk about it for a while but could never figure out when the best time to do it would be.
- some people tried to blackmail her, which is what finally forced her hand.
- at the age of 6 grew her hair out and by 7/8 wore “girls clothes only”. Her mum was extra supportive, so were her teachers. Basically says that kids will be kids, which can give you an idea about some of her classmates’ reactions I guess.
- started taking hormones and “growth stoppers” at age 14. Had fully transitioned by age 19 (while already being a youtuber)
- talks about her fiancé, and how she waited to reveal this information and how she wishes she’d told him sooner. “At the point where I told him my full story, of course he was shocked, but that is a private matter that we’re dealing with, and that I’m so proud of, that we’re able to deal with”. Refers to her fiancé as special, kind-hearted, strong and inspiring.
- says that if you are in the same situation as her, and have fallen in love with someone, you have to tell them, that “it’s what they deserve”. “The sooner, the better”, she continues, but not until you feel you’re in good, safe hands.
- has a special message for those who tried to blackmail her.
- says she’s still the same person, she’s still Nikkie.

Have seen one or two of her videos but not super familiar with her. I did see her recently on an episode of that Netflix makeup show Glow Up. Her feedback I thought was really thoughtful and I left clearly seeing how her doing makeup videos was a skill she has honed.

Happy she was able to reclaim her power and glad people are supportive
wow is crazy the things science can do i'm still very amaze by it. And I am surprise by her revelation.
It’s sad that she had to come out this way because someone was gonna blackmail here. The way she was talking in her video made it sound like she told her fiance much later in the relationship and it was something they were working through. That has to be rough.

Not going to claim that I like her all of a sudden for this, since I still think she sold herself out to hang with the Jeffree crowd and is probably just as bad as him, but ngl this had me in tears because no one deserves to take the choice to tell or not to tell something like this to the entire world from you. I hope she makes soooo much money out of this video since that's what those blackmailers wanted. You have to be fucking vile to threaten anyone with something like this. I also hope she inspires any trans youth that may watch her channel.
Yeah, my feelings toward Nikki are pretty complicated - her support of MLMs, her support of a racist piece of shit like Jeffree, her own alleged racist commets... I can't say I'm a fan. But it's super horrific that she was blackmailed like this and I'm sad that she was not able to reveal this on her own terms. Carrying such a big secret as this while also being a public figure has got to be rough.
So thats why she's so large. I thought she was just a giant woman
Wtf is this comment
He’s been a troll for years. Went away for a while, I think, but apparently has returned.
Accurate. Video says she had to use blockers to stop her from growing even taller

Bitch, I thought it was clickbait. I saw this video several times today and kept passing it. Its great that she feels safe to come out.

Oh... She was forced to reveal it. Damn that's messed up. People are scum.
I hate that she had to do it like this but I'm so happy for her and inspired by her 💖💖
fuck those excuses for human beings trying to blackmail her

so happy to hear she is so comfortable within herself <3
Whoever blackmailed her will hopefully get hit by a bus, because fuck them for making her have to do this when she didn't want to... but god damn, talk about taking back the power!
all the comments in this post about how "shocking" this is and how "you could never tell" feel icky to me.
in most cases I'd agree, but it feels kinda inevitable in a situation like this
I get what you’re saying, but it is surprising she’s been in the public eye so long and has such a huge following that people didn’t know.
that sort of covers the shocking part but not the latter part.
Compared to the shitshow I was expecting this has been a generalized delight (but you're not wrong)

This is so shocking omg! Literally the three most powerful make up artist on youtube are part of the LGBT community.
Who are the other two? Jeffree * and?
Possibly James Charles?

The predator.
Whoever tried to blackmail her, I hope they get in trouble. That's really gross.

I don't love her a bootyguru but she's really strong and brave & I admire that.
I hope the blackmailers get exposed
me too!!!
same
it really, really sucks how people are so awful and hateful and nasty that they all but forced this on her....but good for her! glad she feels safe enough to come out to her fans. i hope it's liberating.
blackmail is a special kind of amoral, hope she's comfortable being out now.
