YouTuber who came out as transgender receives huge support


YouTuber Sam Collins posted a very personal video yesterday to his YouTube account where he talks about his gender and how the gender that he was born with (female) led to him feeling “trapped in my body”. He explains that he knows its an extremely complex scenario saying “I know this is going to be hard for some people to understand.” however the support he has received since has been overwhelming which lead to Sam expressing his appreciation on Twitter. 

This must have been an extremely difficult topic to open up about and I imagine took a lot of bravery from Sam. The video is ten minutes long where Sam also goes into detail about the thoughts he was having before the transition from female to male “I felt like I was trapped in my body. It’s a very confusing thing,” he explains, detailing that from the ages of 12 to 15 that he was “just very, very depressed and very negative.”
