Nikki Tutorials just came out on YouTube as having transitioned from male to female when she was 19. Last I checked, she had 25 million views. I don’t know if the video is monetized, but if so that would translate to mid six figure profit. For one 17 minute video that probably was done in 4 hours, start to finish. Worst case scenario, she gets crap from 1% of commenters. Even if it’s not monetized, she’ll bank big time. Most of what I’ve heard has been overwhelmingly positive for her. She apparently came out because she was being blackmailed by people who were going to out her.
Demi did it as an attention grab and it worked. She’s getting a payday too, just not as big as Nikki, who seems sincere and earned it.
