Luke Wale Facts
- He had socially transitioned from female to male in the mid-2000s, during his teenage years. Luke had known from childhood that he was a male trapped in a female’s body. This had made him the target of bullies at school and he revealed that even his teachers were not very supportive. He had joined YouTube in November 2007 as a means to escape his troubles – bullying, depression, and social anxiety.
- He was first diagnosed with severe depression when he was 11 years old. During this phase, he would often encounter suicidal thoughts and had even tried to commit suicide twice but was saved by his mother on each occasion.
- He often credits his time on YouTube and the support of his subscribers as the key reasons he was able to get out of his darkest times. One of the early adopters of the platform, he was named as one among the ‘Top 500 YouTube Partners’ of 2010.
- He has a tattoo marked ‘11.12.07’, the date he had joined YouTube, to show his gratefulness towards YouTube and his subscribers.
- He was born with the name Hunter and had later changed it to Jeydon Kyle Ingham and then to Parker Jeydon Wale, before eventually settling on Luke Wale.
- Another thing that had helped him get through the tough times was music and he had started creating original music in 2006. He was attracted to the art form from a young age and has been a massive follower of Eminem and Michael Jackson. He had bought a guitar and taught himself how to play the instrument.
