  • I'm cis-straight, and I am super fucking moved. This whole project was gorgeous. I can't even.

  • now I’m just wondering if Eugene is gonna be the wife or husband lmao

  • Eugene: Why I’m Coming Out As Gay Me: *_I need to be a boi now_* I so support gays and lesbians UwU

  • This is amazing. I can't relate but I understand how hard it is to have homophobic people in your life. My papa will get mad even if I mention the word "gay". His asked me many times before " Your not lesbian right? ". I love my papa but his comments really make me mad. I'm scared to make a homosexual friend because I don't want them to be treated bad just because he's stuck in his old ways. My brother has always seemed like he might be homosexual. I can't be sure completely but he has said he was gay. Of course my papa tells him to "not talk like that". I don't care how old he is. He shouldn't be talking to anyone who comes out like that. I don't know why I went on this rant but I just hate knowing there's so many hurting people out there just because they have a preference that's not what is called "normal". Thank you for listening. But please like this video and give it all the support. And go check out Eugene's coming out video. It is a masterpiece!

  • Am not surprised at all it remains the rest to come out, don't watch their videos but it's so obvious

  • “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived! The sexually immoral, idolators, adulterers, passive homosexual partners practicing homosexuals, thieves, the greedy, drunkards, the verbally abusive, and swindlers will not inherit the kingdom of God. Some of you once lived this way. But you were washed , you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-11

  • Thank you for being you Eugene, you are awesome and I support you! ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 🌈

  • You know for everyone who is gay, tran and every other difference in the world be true to yourself. The hardest critic is yourself never hide who you are. If the ppl around you can't accept you then they were never really there for you anyways. I think the hardest I've ever cried is when i asked my husband what would happen if our daughter or son came out as gay? He looked me deep in the eyes came over and sat next to me and said, " baby if our kids come out and say they are gay i would hug them and tell them good for you never lie to yourself. Just try to find someone i can talk sports with lol. No just kidding. I want our kids to be able to tell us anything without fear and if they are gay it won't change anything they are still my kids and i won't treat, expect or love them any different. They are humans and we bleed together as a family." I never cry and that made me cry so hard. Never lie to yourself the struggles me face make us strong and make us who we are regardless if you are gay or straight never lie to yourself. Love yourself for your differences.

  • i was watching bts how exactly did i get here..?

  • I think people should just let people be who they want to to be. I am very happy for Eugene.

  • Are we not going to talk about the "Son, you can have two cranes"????

  • Okay but who tf is the 17K dislikes they boutta catch hands

  • I think we can all agree that Eugene is such a great role model. I love you Eugene!!!!

  • Gay was a toxic word for me because I got bullied and told that even though I wasn't and I am the same way as you were or are I did cry through this and the video

  • Love him Absolutely love him

  • This feels weird but.....Try Gay! Get it....like not Try Guy.....No?.......Ok

  • I wonder if 10 years later if the LGBTQ+ couples will be considered just as "normal" as strsight couples. Kinda like how its in the Sims.

  • This video took so much energy from you and it is clear in the behind the scenes shot. I cannot believe how self lessly you've acted at this point. I am astonished at the human race right now and reassured about its capability to show empathy.

  • *Eugene in 2016* Girls: wow he is so hot I want him Guys:... *eugene in 2019* Girls:... guys: fuck yeah our turn

  • i just started watching you guys and I'm proud. you deserve happiness man congratulations.

  • I'm an Asian and straight but i cried while watching this video and then rewatch the coming out video while crying. I felt how hard it must've been knowing who you are and what can make you happy for years but too afraid to embrace it.

  • 1 like means more love for eugene

  • I stand by the fact that all hot guys are either taken or gay. I totally can’t wait to see who Eugene has as his future try husband.....🥰 He’s always been my favorite try guy( no offense to the rest) and this has only strengthened my love for him as a person. This shows how truly strong he is and will always be. Everyone who truly cares about you is in your side Eugene! 🤗

  • Makes sense that you cried a lot. Capricorns are known to be very emotional and a bit dramatic.

  • So uhm.. I'm pan and basically if I tell my parents I KNOW they will be like "Oh, it's a dumb phase" Or "Get out" Or even "You don't know what your talking about, your still a kid"

  • because your faggot

  • the laugh at 0:14 is me in front of my parents when i came out

  • -_- unsub lol

  • I knew you where gay

  • We love you and I bisexual we all love you

  • I’m bi and closeted and this video just meant so much to me. It’s so relatable and thank you Eugene for being so brave to really put yourself out there

  • I’m so proud of him

  • Eugene is so brave!!!!!!!

  • damn i don't even have the confidence to tell my parents i'm gender-fluid but that's amazing he can genuinely express himself in the way that he truly feels not everyone has the self-confidence for that

  • #proud

  • I cried so much when he talked about opening the letter to himself about him being finally happy. I wrote something really similar and I can genuinely say "I felt that".


  • I just don't get why he thinks it's so hard to come out. Honestly it's 2019 nobody cares, especially when it's been obvious literally forever. Such a drama queen. P.s this isn't me being homophobe, this is me being honest.

  • I have known you were gay since the first days when you guys did the trying out of different foods. Years ago!

  • Don't worry Eugene we will always love you no matter what. Gay or straight it doesn't matter. We love you as a person and for who you are. I'm sorry you are going through all this stress and shit. I personally understand what you are going through. I even felt this way when I came out to my mother. Please just be happy and stop stressing over this. Don't worry about what people think and do what you want. We will accept you and if people don't they don't know and love you like we do. I love you so much and I hope you find someone and become happy. 💓💜💙💚💛

  • I thought Eugene came out years ago. It seems I always knew he was gay. What is the problem?

  • This (Why I'm Coming Out As Gay) is a very powerful video and the way it complements the coming out video is very valuable. Thank you for you, for your talent and your vulnerability. I truly hope you can one day answer a whole-hearted "yes!" to your younger self's question whether you're finally happy. Wishing you all the best, from the Netherlands.

  • I genuinely appreciate all the work that went into it but it looses me once he gets into the drag queen scenes because then it turns into something of a shadow, a label. Being gay isn't a visual, your normal like everyone else, just into same sex. Where as the drag queen scene is limited to ONLY drag queens; only this "flamboyant" persona. At the end of the film, its almost demeaning to the family as all his past family members have been replaced with these "I'm better then you" queens. It's truly touching and heartbreaking to watch as he's being solidified into this new family due to how strict his old family was. Eugene, you truly have a gift for art, a real inspiration. I want you to know that it doesn't matter whether or not your gay. Being gay isn't a personality. I think the real message being told is that using force on your child will only drive them further away. But, I suppose that's just a personal interpretation. Nonetheless, absolutely beautiful story. Theres so much to analyze in the costumes, in the dance, in facial expressions. theres a story embedded into each movement as it all comes from the heart. Though it didn't inspire me to "come out" or to wear a pride flag around my neck, it did inspire me to hopefully one day, tell a story as thoughtful as this.

  • I wanna see Eugenes husband wear a wig and nail polish and join the try wives

  • Literally every single asian youtuber I've seen are gay!!

  • Where my gay/american/asian squad at?

  • I'm so proud of Eugene, I'm so happy for you

  • I always thought he was gay so glad he is happy now.

  • #soproud

  • YES FARREN!!!!!
