“It’s been 33 years coming and I’m happy to be in a place where I can embrace who I am. I have put my identity and personal happiness aside for so long, out of fear and rejection or me not wanting to embarrass my family. Then I realized anyone who actually loves me for me, won’t be embarrassed and would’ve shown genuine interest in how long I have felt this way in the first place,” she wrote.

“This will be a lonely process in terms of emotional support from others, but I will be happy knowing I am doing this for myself and what I’ve needed for my gender dysphoria,” she continued.

“I will not be answering to Chris. It’s Cara. Crocker was never and isn’t my actual last name to begin with, just a stage name I had to pick when I was being sent threats online as a teenager. I’m not living out of fear or anyone else’s terms any longer,” she concluded.

Another early YouTube pioneer’s iconic video is being removed – find out why.
