Nikkie de Jager would have rather kept this part of her life her business, and make the announcement she made at a time and place of her choosing. Unfortunately someone took the ability to do that away from her.
As NikkieTutorials, the YouTube makeup guru and 11 year video blogger has over 13 million subscribers, and a fiance who loves her named Dylan.
But as I and your trans elders know all too well from our trans history, when you are a non disclosed trans person, trying to keep it that way and living your best life, unscrupulous haters will try to use your desire to keep the knowledge that you’re part of Team Trans against you.
Nikkie revealed in a video blog that she was being hounded by blackmailers who found out about her trans history, and threatened to reveal she was trans feminine to the media.
She decided to make the announcement she was trans in order to regain some of her personal power back.
Welcome to our international trans family Nikkie! Yes, I wish that she could have done so at a time and place of her choosing, but I;m glad she did.
So will all the trans younglings who just found out they have another trans possibility model to look up to and emulate.
