About Skylar Kergil

Skylar Kergil is a transgender artist, musician, and YouTuber who has been documenting his transition from female-to-male since the age of 17. Now 25 and living in Boston, Skylar is an inspiration to so many trans people, both those who have transitioned (or are transitioning) and can sympathize with his journey, and those who are just discovering who they are. Besides opening up to his 110K+ YouTube subscribers, Skylar also got candid in an interview with The Huffington Post this year, detailing the emotional rollercoaster that is transitioning. His moving “Who I’m #ProudToBe” video shows that, while all life is a process, if you have the courage to be yourself, no challenge is too big to overcome.
