Jeydon Wale is well-known in the YouTube community. He's had his own channel for nine years and gained almost a million followers in that time. Now, he'll be known for something else – he's come out as transgender in an inspiring video!
The social media star came out three days ago to his followers and explained everything that has gone down behind-the-scenes. The video is super emotional, but also really eye-opening at the same time revealing that he is a female to male transgender.
Jeydon said, "Hi, my name is Jeydon Wale and I am female to male transgender — holy sh-t. I have always been a boy, [but] my body said otherwise at birth."
He revealed that he's going to start hormone replacement therapy in the next several weeks, which is another reason why he decided to share his secret. He wants his fans to go through this journey with him!
It's pretty amazing how open and confident Jeydon is now, but he explains that it wasn't always that way!
"I felt so alone. The people around me were not accepting me…I felt like I was suffocating. I felt like I was drowning. I felt like my skin was smothering me and I was trapped in my body and it honestly felt like a nightmare that was never, ever going to end," he said.
"I never thought people would love and accept me for who I am…I just can’t thank you enough; thank you for letting me be myself, something the world was trying so hard to take away from me…You guys are the reason why I’m still here and I want to show you how happy I am."
Bravo Jeydon! We can't wait to see what comes next!
