Joseph McCormick November 17, 2016

YouTube star Jeydon Wale has come out as transgender in an emotional video.

Addressing his 845,000 followers on this 10th anniversary of being on YouTube, he works up the courage to come out and say he is trans.

He says: “I have always been a boy…[but] my body said otherwise at birth.”

Going on, he says “I forgive the people who didn’t understand”.

Thanking his followers for being supportive of him throughout his YouTube journey, he says he is pleased to be able to “love and accept myself to the point where I finally can.”

“I just can’t thank you enough,” he adds. “Thank you for letting me be myself, something the world was trying so hard to take away from me.”

Despite a little hate, he has since found support in his hundreds of thousands of followers.

One follower wrote: “Still have the biggest crush on you I don’t see why this would make me feel any different about you.”

Another added: “We support you !!! i love you for exactly who you are and that will never change <3, and id love to see more videos about this kinnda thingg :DD" Check out the video below:
