Ingrid Nilsen is a famous YouTuber who gives beauty, makeup, styling, fashion tips to her almost 3.4 million subscribers! And she has just announced that she's gay and her fan base couldn't be more supportive!
"I guess I'm just going to get it right to it. There's something that I want you to know. That something is, I'm gay. It feels so good to say that. It feels so good."
She grew up in an environment where homosexuality was not universally accepted. She said that she's known since she was 4. She had dated men while also having secret flings with women privately. Her boyfriend, now ex obviously, has been so kind and supportive of her.
So far her 'Coming Out' video has surpassed 2 MILLION views and is gaining traction. She is going VIRAL.
"I'm not ashamed with who I am."
"We all deserve our best chance."
She drove up the coast for 50 miles until she came to terms with it with no direction at all. She told her friend Kat first that she was gay.
"I'm proud of who I am and I'm not going to apologize for who I am anymore. This is the life I've always lived in my head and now it's real, and I can't believe it's real. I've dreamed about taking this piece of me inside that cabinet and putting it in that space it's always has inside of me. I'm giving myself my best chance and so should you."
Here's the full video. Your fan base is so proud of you! Congratulations for finally being YOURSELF.
Good for her :)
