There is some scary crap in this world. Spiders, horror movies, Donald Trump etc...

But you know what the scariest thing that someone could possibly do? Come out as transgender. Especially as a teenager.

Jeydon Wale is a well-known YouTuber. His channel has been running for nine years, and he's got nearly one million followers.

In his newest video, he has bravely come out as a female to male transgender, and we're bloody inspired.

He explains in the video everything that happens BTS, and how hard it has been in the process.

"Hi, my name is Jeydon Wale and I am female to male transgender — holy sh-t. I have always been a boy, [but] my body said otherwise at birth."

He revealed that he is going to start hormone replacement therapy in the coming weeks, which is why he revealed to his fans that he is transgender - so they can join him on the journey.

"I felt so alone. The people around me were not accepting me...I felt like I was suffocating. I felt like I was drowning. I felt like my skin was smothering me and I was trapped in my body and it honestly felt like a nightmare that was never, ever going to end," he said. Yikes.

"I never thought people would love and accept me for who I am...I just can’t thank you enough; thank you for letting me be myself, something the world was trying so hard to take away from me...You guys are the reason why I’m still here and I want to show you how happy I am."
