Summary At the beginning of his physical transition from female to male, Kergil posted weekly update videos on YouTube about the physical and emotional changes he experienced. His openness and positivity attracted thousands of viewers, who followed along as his voice deepened and his body changed shape. This is the story of what came before the videos and what happened behind the scenes. Kergil opens up about the long path to gaining his family's acceptance and to accepting himself, sharing stories along the way about smaller challenges like choosing a new name and learning to shave without eyebrow mishaps.
