In an emotional video posted on Saturday (June 6), YouTube star and former The X Factor contestant Trevi Moran came out to her fans as a transgender woman. "Hi. My name is Trevi Moran. I am a transgender female," she tearfully said at the start of her video. "It's a good start. I can't believe I just said that out loud."

The singer spoke in her video about how coming to terms with her gender identity is something she's been dealing with her entire life, and that she even struggled with the stress of public scrutiny back in 2017, pushing herself further into denial about who she really was.

"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," she recalled. "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 back then. But now I'm here, and I'm transgender."

While Moran explained that she had a series of photos and music videos planned to help announce her coming out, she ultimately decided to do something more personal by documenting what her transition has been like for a docuseries called Trevi: The Transition.

"I've been documenting my whole transition so far," she explained. "I am two months in on hormones. My brain is just everywhere. I am so hormonal, I mean my a-- is getting fat as f--k. And I’m growing breasts, and it hurts. I’m going through a lot right now, all just because I want to be me."
