March 31 was Trans Day of Visibility, and NikkieTutorials aka Nikkie de Jager posted an inspiring message to her younger self.
De Jager came out as transgender earlier this year. While the circumstances of her coming out process were disappointing (she was blackmailed into telling her story), the outpouring of love and support from her fans made it all worth it. The beauty influencer has expressed feeling so free after speaking her truth, and we couldn't be happier for her.
The YouTuber shared a heartfelt post with a throwback photo of her younger self to mark an important holiday for trans people.
Nikita Dragun, another transgender beauty influencer, shared her love and support in de Jager's comments.
De Jager was one of the first major beauty influencers in the YouTube community, so when she came out, it was a big deal to those who had looked up to her. Nikita Dragun was one of those individuals. She wrote, "happy #transdayofvisibility queen... congratulations on living ur truth! from one t girl to another ur such an inspiration to so many including me xo."
Patrick Starr and Demi Lovato also sent their love on the heartfelt post.
"This is beautiful! So proud of you... such an inspiration...," Lovato wrote. Patrick Starrr commented, "Omg ilysmmmmmmm."
