Nikole Mitchell se crió en una familia conservadora de cristianos bautistas en Minnesota, Estados Unidos. Creció, se casó y se involucró, junto a su entonces esposo, en una iglesia local, hasta convertirse en pastora.
Sin embargo, había algo que para ella no encajaba, y se dio cuenta de qué era después de asistir a un evento LGTBIQ+, en 2016: era bisexual. A partir de allí, todo cambió para ella; se alejó de la vida religiosa, dejó los sermones y se convirtió en stripper.
Mitchell, de 36 años de edad, ahora es una estrella en la plataforma OnlyFans, donde publica fotos y videos eróticos para sus suscriptores a cambio de una módica cuota de 25 dólares (unos 195 quetzales) al mes.

Sin embargo, Mitchell explica que no fue fácil revelar al mundo quién realmente era.
“Sabía que lo perdería todo”
“Siempre quise ser stripper, pero desde joven me hicieron creer que mis deseos y cuerpo eran pecaminosos y malos”, dijo en declaraciones recogidas por el New York Post.
Mitchell relata que se convirtió en pastora en 2016, luego de que los líderes de la iglesia la invitaran. “Era lo que había soñado durante años: estar en un escenario frente a miles de personas”, comentó al mismo medio.
Cuenta que ese mismo año asistió a una obra de teatro, y que el espectáculo le ayudó a darse cuenta de que se identificaba como bisexual, algo que le traería conflictos en su oficio como pastora.
“Sabía que si revelaba mi naturaleza lo perdería todo, ya que la iglesia no da la bienvenida a las personas LGBTI+”, señaló.
En consecuencia, en 2017 renunció a su rol de líder religiosa y empezó de cero.

A year ago THIS WEEK I came out publicly and forever changed my life. • I recorded a coming out video and posted it to all my social media sites… and watching that video today made me feel SO MUCH COMPASSION for 33 year old Nikole (link to video in profile). • She was afraid. She was scared. She was alone in the dark, at 10:30pm recording this video with a shaky hand and a nauseous stomach, knowing she HAD to do this. • She *knew* there was life on the other side, and in order to get there, she had to come out with her truth. • This truth would cost her a lot: – her leadership position and speaking gigs at her church – loss of friends and loved ones – having to change seminaries – and having many awkward conversations with too many people. • And yet, she did it. • I did it! • I came out with my truth and spent the next two days in bed with a vulnerability hangover. • AND I AM SO GLAD. • I have come SO FAR in the past year that it truly takes my breath away. • – I am in the most amaaazing seminary (I am SO glad I switched schools!) • – I have the most AMAZING friends • – I have more opportunities NOW precisely because I own my story, my truth, and my identity • – I have a business that is taking off and is so successful and powerful from the get-go I have to pinch myself to make sure this really is my life! • – And I am just happier, healthier, and SO grateful to be alive💜 • There is so much power in being your true self in every way. No more hiding, no more pretending, no more fear of being caught. • I get to be me AND be a successful coach. I get to be me AND be a thriving grad student. I get to be me AND be loved. • In fact, if I was still hiding my truth, I wouldn't be able to do ANY of those things. • By learning to love myself, I learned to let others love me. By learning to be myself, I learned that BEING ME is KEY to my business being successful. By learning to be me, I was able to find the seminary of my dreams. • No more fear. No more shrinking. Just big, bold, beautiful me. • (Continued in comments)
Confiesa que comenzó a sentirse atraída por el modelaje de lencería, por lo que se inscribió a una clase en la que tuvo la oportunidad de hacer una sesión de fotos desnuda, lo cual fue una revelación para ella. “Lloré porque nunca me había sentido tan santa y sagrada en mi vida. Nunca me sentí tan sexy y liberada como en esa ocasión”, comentó.
En 2019, se separó de su exesposo y creó una cuenta en OnlyFans, donde comparte contenido exclusivo para sus miles de seguidores. Además, se convirtió en “coach” de vida y ofrece diferentes cursos sobre sexualidad, autoestima y éxito económico a través de su sitio web.
“Cada persona tiene derecho a expresarse de la manera que le parezca bien. Mi sexualidad es sanadora y sagrada, y cuando le doy este regalo a la gente, se bendicen”, concluyó Mitchell.

You can say no. An old friend reached out to me asking if I wanted to join her business. This friend has a beautiful soul, so I know whatever business she has, it must be equally beautiful. Even still, I knew my answer right away: “No.” I thanked her for thinking of me, & that I am grateful to be fully living out my purpose & don’t have interest in joining her business. I wished her the best, told her she deserved it, & meant every word. /// The old Nikole would have freaked out at (a) saying no & (b) for being so direct about it. But this Nikole? This Nikole felt good about it. I know who I am. I know what I am here to do. And there’s no need to feel guilty about that. /// She messaged me back, & you know what she said? “Thank you.” In fact, she said: “Thank you for actually giving me an answer. You have no idea how much I love that. So many people say, “I’ll look at it and see” but I know they really mean no but they can’t come out & say it. So thank you. And thank you so much for your verbal support. It means a lot.” /// Me saying no didn’t make me a bad person or ruin her day. In fact, it blessed her day! And it blessed mine that she would think I’d be a good fit for her business (that’s a compliment!) & take the time out of her busy life to message me. The moral of the story? You can say no. You’re allowed to say no. People are blessed by your no. And you both can move on with your day with clean energy, zero guilt & without an empty promise hanging over your head. And you’ll feel much, much better for it. ❤️❤️❤️ P.S. Did you know I’m hosting a LIVE training this coming Monday to spill the beans (wow, haven’t said that in ages) on how I grew my IG following from 900 to 10,000 in just a matter of months? It’s true!

Bigger platform = bigger reach, more opportunities, & a whole lotta open doors! Join me Monday to learn all about it! Link in bio! 📸: @archlenzphotography
