SURELLE’S JOURNEY

Surelle Stevens is a social media influencer, a YouTuber and TV personality born and raised in the U.K. Right from an early age, Surelle had already begun to question the fact that she could not use the girls’ bathroom at school. Her inquisitiveness led her to start going to therapy from the age of 5.

Surelle says she came out first at 11 as gay before coming out again at 17 as a woman after she had won a popular pageant that at first. Winning the pageant was a major step to coming out and accepting who she was even though her mum found this very confusing at the time.
