Trevi is known for her YouTube channel, but also competed on the second series of American X Factor.
YouTuber and former X Factor contestant Trevi Moran has come out as a transgender woman in an emotional video, titled Coming Out. I Am Female. Trevi had previously come out as gay in a 2015 video, and in a 2017 video questioned whether she identified as cis-gender.
In the video, she said: “Hi. My name is Trevi Moran, I am a transgender female. That’s a good start, I can’t believe I said that out loud.”
She added: I’ve dealt with this feeling my entire life, and I know that I’m a woman deep down inside. … I hit a rock in my journey in 2017 when I thought I wasn’t transgender because I thought that people were pushing me to be transgender. No, I just had a lot of demons back then. A lot of eating disorder stuff, self-confidence issues, it wasn’t the time for me to come out then.”
She explained that she had intended to come out with a new show, a photoshoot and music, but then decided that it “didn’t feel right” adding it felt like she was trying to “glamourise it and capitalise off it, and that’s not the situation.”
Speaking about her transition, Trevi said: “I am two months in on hormones. My brain is just everywhere. I am so hormonal, I mean my ass is getting fat as fuck, and I’m growing breasts. It hurts and I’m going through a lot right now and all because I want to be me and self-express myself.”
Trevi went on to say that she was documenting her journey, and that she would made a docu-series titled Trevi: The Transition, before showing a small preview clip, which showcased both the highs and lows of her life.
Ending the video on a note of encouragement for fans, she said: “If you’re ever lost, just don’t go out, go in. Go in and find yourself because going out and distracting yourself defeats the purpose.”
