Ingrid Nilsen, who is a popular 26-year-old video blogger on YouTube, has recently come out to her fan base to tell them that she is gay. Ingrid, who may be best known for her role as a judge on Lifetime’s “Project Runway” had announced her news in a video to her more than 3 million subscribers. In just two short hours of coming out to her fans, Ingrid’s video was up to 140,000 likes and hundreds of supportive comments from people around the world.
The conversation that Ingrid had with her fans through the video was honest and touching. She came right out to tell them that she was gay, then got tearful when she said how good it felt being able to come out and tell the world who she really is. She went on to say that she figured out at a young age that she like girls, however being gay was not something that was easily accepted in the world she grew up in. She learned to hide who she was, even dating men at times.
Ingrid has said that coming out to her friends and family was easier than she expected. She ends her video by saying how excited she is to finally live her life without apologies to anyone for who she really is.
