Ingrid Nilsen has come out as gay in an emotional YouTube video.
The beauty vlogger shared the 19-minute video with her 3.3million fans last night (June 9), with the 26-year old confessing to hiding her sexuality after having crushes on girls from the age of four.
Kicking off her moving speech, Nilsen stated: “I am doing this. I guess I am just going to get right to it. There is something that I want you to know - and that something is I'm gay.”
A tearful Ingrid then continued: “It feels so good to say that. It feels so good”, before admitting that she’s been “waiting for this for a long time”.
The brunette - who appeared as a judge on Lifetime reality TV series Project Runway Threads last year - went on: “I've always known since my earliest memories. This is not something that I chose. It is something that is a part of me and has always been a part of me.
“Essentially I grew up in an environment where homosexuality wasn't universally accepted. t was accepted by some and definitely not the majority and that was difficult.”
The star - who goes by the name of MissGlamorazzi - also confessed to suppressing her sexuality by having boyfriends, but stated: “I can care about a man, but I cannot be in love with a man,' she explains. 'I cannot give myself fully and completely to a man.
“When I have kissed girls with no feelings attached it felt like, oh my god, this this what I am supposed to be doing.”
Ingrid concluded: “I want to live my life unapologetically because I am proud of who I am and I am not going to apologise for who I am anymore,' she says. 'This is the life I have always lived in my head and now its real.”
She ended the clip by exclaiming: “I am so excited!”
Her video already has over a million views, with fans rushing to congratulate Nilsen, with one follower writing: “I respect you Ingrid. I pray you would be happy. I'm still a subscriber and will always be. I love you.”
Another added: “You are a beautiful and wonderful person inside and out!! I hope you get everything that you want because you deserved, don't forget that you deserve as much as everyone else (if not more)!!”
Ingrid, you totally rock!
