Nik Kacy was born in Hong Kong and grew up in New York before heading to LA for college.
Nik is the founder of NikKacy Footwear and we had the pleasure of accessorizing some of our designs at the dapperq show with Nik Kacy footwear and accessories.
Nik has an interesting story that will pull at your heart strings as they share their struggles to live in a body that didn’t belong to the real Nik Kacy.
Nik knew at around 8/9 years of age that they were born into the wrong body, and they longed to be able to live life as a boy. Suffering childhood depression and wishing they had never been born, Nik struggled for many years.
After 3 non fatal attempts at suicide, Nik knew they had to make some changes.
They share the life changing moment they made the decision to live and not simply exist and how it set them on a journey to make a positive impact on the lgbtiq community.
