ADEA, from Montreal, Canada is a full-time content creator who makes educational videos about being transgender. Initially, Adea’s huge TikTok following didn’t know she was trans, however, when she came out in 2018 she lost a staggering 50,000 followers. "I was really shook", she said. However, this did not dent her resolve to help others and the influencer made weekly videos on her feminisation surgical journey. "All the hate I got and all the followers I lost didn't do anything to my goal to educate people because I know how it has saved my life and it could save a lot more people's lives." Adea came out when she was 16 years old, and faced some judgement from the community around her, "especially where I live people are not aware of what being trans is, they think it's like a man in a wig", she explained. "I was depressed growing up and I never really felt happy. As soon I knew what being trans was I knew that was me and I was in the wrong body." In this episode of Shake My Beauty Adea speaks to her dad about how he felt when she first came out and how their relationship has changed over that journey.
