“Today I am here to share something with you that I’ve always wanted to share with you one day, but under my own circumstances, and it looks like that chance has been taken away from me,” she says in the video. “So today, I am taking back my own power and I have to tell you something.”

Nikkie went on to explain that she always wanted to be her own person — without any labels. However, she says “It’s time to let go and be truly free.” She then says, ”When I was younger I was born in the wrong body, which means that I am transgender. I am NikkieTutorials, and I am Nikkie. I am me. We don’t need labels. But if we are going to put a label on it, yes, I am transgender. But at the end of the day, I am me.”

During the video, the vlogger also opened up about her childhood and shared how she always identified as a woman growing up. “By the age of seven or eight I fully wore girl’s clothes only and it felt amazing.” She said she fully transitioned by the age of 19. As for her reason to come out now,

“I have been blackmailed by people that wanted to leak my story to the press,” she said although she didn’t name them. However, Nikkie said she always had intentions to open up about this part of her life but wanted her YouTube channel to be all about her art.

“The last thing I want in my life is for you to not trust me anymore or to look at me with different eyes,” she says. “At the end of the day, I am still Nikkie.”

The news came as a shock to get fans who had no clue. However, that didn’t stop them from loving her. In fact, they found more respect for Nikkie and praised her for coming out and doing things on her own terms.
