Last year, Elliot Page told the world that he is a transgender man. From his childhood, people knew him as Ellen Page. But when he came out to the world and accepted his real self, people showed love and appreciation. Celebs like Elliot have shown the world that one must not shy away from their reality. Walking on the same path of acceptance is beauty YouTuber Jonn Poker who is now Emma Jonnz.
From childhood, everyone knew the influencer as Jonn Poker. Now, she has come out as a transgender woman and wants people to address her with new name Emma Jonnz. She goes by the pronouns she/her. In February, Jonnz decided to drop a video and tell her story to her followers.
It was an encouraging and courageous step taken by someone who is known by thousands of people on the internet. Emma Jonnz has shown many people from the community that one has to accept their reality first and speak out when they feel safe. With the video, Jonnz is also trying to create a safe space for others who also want to come out and need good motivation.
In the video, the YouTuber says, “I’m a transgender woman now. For everyone else out there who doesn’t understand it, I was born a male, and I feel inside the same way as a woman feels. I feel like I was supposed to be born a female.” Emma also revealed that initially, they had doubts that it is just a phase. But with time, they accepted their reality with an open heart and decided to live their life with their real self.
“I also feel like my body doesn’t reflect the same way I feel. I’ve been thinking about transitioning for over two years. I remember the first time I was just thinking about it, and I was like, ‘Am I sure about this? Maybe it’s just a phase’,” added Jonnz.
