It didn’t take long for Michael Kittrell to go from viral “Gingers Do Have Souls” persona to warming our hearts with his grandmother Mema and his wacky family on the Reelz show Hollywood Hillbillies, and now the 23-year-old has come out as transgender in a new YouTube video.

Coming out as Claire Kittrell, she explained her five-month hiatus from YouTube: “I’m not going to live another year of my life pretending to be someone else. I’m just not going to do it. I’m done pretending.  I’m not going to live another year of my life pretending to be someone else. I’m just not going to do it. I know a lot of you are going to make fun of me. I know a lot of you are going to think that I’m joking. This is the hardest video I’ve ever made, because I’m not.”

We’re so happy for you Claire! We hope Mema and the rest of your wonderful family has your back!
