  • Such a powerful message, given through an amazing video, by a wonderful person. Congratulations, Eugene! I wish nothing but success and happiness for you and all the try guys.

  • You are brave and empowering, I thank you as do we all Eugene.

  • Thank you

  • i wasn't expecting to watch this entire video, BUT I DID AND IT WAS AMAZING. much love, eugene!!

  • That's what's up Eugene support you all the way

  • I first found Eugene on the try guys on BuzzFeed along time ago, and seeing him then and seeing him now it’s wonderful to see his real life story arc of opening up and growth. He smiles more, he’s more open with physical contact with the other try guys. And that’s amazing to watch. Thank you for showing us your pride, Eugene.

  • But didn’t everyone know

  • So incredibly inspired by this. So happy you can be yourself too

  • Eugene, I am so happy for you and I am so proud of you.

  • Eugene, you're so so brave and I genuinely hope that you can feel the support. We love you so so much. Thank you for creating that amazing video.

  • Love this. Thank you.

  • Don't let the nay sayers get you down, Eugene! You are awesome for all the parts of yourself, the strengths and weaknesses make you who you are. It's so uplifting to see you embracing yourself. Congratulations on all your accomplishments!

  • Its probably too late but i wish you wpulve filmed the reaction from the other try guys to the final piece.

  • Dear Eugene No matter if you are gay or not you are who you are don't let anyone make fun of you or let any comments let you down. We love you for who you are we love you Eugene💜💜 - from ana

  • Thank you

  • ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

  • Wow, big shocker.

  • It's always the hot ones... 😂 Anywho, this was a masterpiece! You did a great job.

  • Haha #2 on tending gay

  • Is anyone even surprised? He seemed pretty gay to me from the start. Actually, come to think of it, they all did. Hmm upcoming video clickbait? "We're all gay!"

  • I love how diverse the color scheme is, it reminds me of our flag

  • Thank you, Eugene. Just - thank you so much.

  • Ah shit,here we go again. Another gay video.

  • I’m not crying it’s just sweat 😭😭😭😭

  • 😍

  • The video is amazing. You and those who helped, did an awesome job. I was surprised I saw it on a facebook link before I heard any hint of it on the youtube Try Guys channel (which I subscribe to). You mentioned the stress of the video itself, along with your Try Guys work and releasing it during Pride month (awesome choice). But I'd like to address your personal stress level with being a gay man. I am a gay man in my 60s and didn't come out until I was 25. And the stress level I was feeling was paramount to me doing so. Since you're 30 and these days it's supposedly easier to come out (almost 40 years after I did); I just can't imagine the amount of stress you endured! Just thought it was important to mention this because , to me, it shows you were under some extreme stress, over this, for an extended period of time. Hugs and glad you finally let yourself be free!

  • It’s not a fucking new thing.

  • You did great in the video but I thought you already came out because it was obvious to me at least that you were gay. Or was it just me. Loved the video, great job.

  • You're so FREAKING talented!!!

  • I hope he makes more films they are wonderful and packed with meaning. I really wanna see that one about Korean beauty uncensored.

  • The most eventful pride month on FR-tv (to me), with both Dan Howell and Eugene coming out. Y’all are beautiful, funky and fuckin handsome.

  • love the coming out video and this bts video so much. i'm really happy and proud for you, eugene. and through this bts, i can relate a lot in terms of growing up as a sensitive kid (except i still cry a lot lol), always feeling like deep down i was "bad," having those walls up even in your own family, so yeah, a lot really hits home and just reinforces this genuine want for you to find happiness and be happy.

  • U were the straightest man I knew lol

  • Fake and Gay

  • Wow, wow, wow! Eugene, this is absolutely stunning and I'm trying to type this but I'm speechless. Absolutely amazing and I can see your heart in this whole thing. I see YOU and YOU are amazing. Much love to you Eugene and so happy for you and your truth. ❤❤❤ and to the rest of the Try Guys, much love to you also for loving your one and only Eugene.

    • One of the very feminine low testosterone men from the try guys is gay? Well shit who'd have thought 😂😂

  • Faggot Fuck all the gays here

  • ugh i just love u guys man :( all of u nd even though it took me a while to get there, i am so proud to be a part of this community. nd ughhhh im just so proud of eugene Ps: If someone doesn't want to associate with you just cause ur sexuality, they not for you. If they can't appreciate YOU as a whole, they don't deserve to be in your life. Until they can appreciate, and if they never do, u should be happy that extra bit of toxicity is out of ur life.

  • fr-tv.com/tv/vid%C3%A9o-s91KuLbIxPk.html

  • Faggggg

  • Eugene, happiness is a feeling and not a state of being, so it's okay if you don't always feel happy. We accept you for you when you're moody or curt, and I hope that even if you don't see this comment, you one day discover this for yourself, through love and acceptance by those around you, whether from your real family or your chosen one.

  • Still feels like a publicity stunt

  • Pls pray to god!

  • Blood on his lip in the cover photo and promoting an agenda with the lgbt message? Sounds like satanic propaganda to me.

  • You are making a sin be a boy

  • 🖤🖤🖤

  • I thought he already came out. It was kinda obvious not in a bad way

  • after seeing the finished product of this masterpiece I had the courage to come out to my mom as pansexual 😭♥️ it does feel slightly weird but I never felt more free, so thank you Eugene for making this video, you’ve really helped me 😭♥️

  • You are amazing

  • Watching this I was crying because this is so moving. Seeing Eugene having the huge project that made him happy that is so moving😭💞👏 THIS WAS INSPIRING💕

  • At about 4:22 pause and read the sheet. It helped me understand things I didn’t catch even in the 20 times I watched the original video

  • Unsub

  • Nigga everyone and there dog knows you've been gay.

  • The try guys try being gay

  • Is it rude That I already thought he was gay like a long time ago? like I thought it was painfully obvious

  • I was fine until Eugene said he’s was afraid of people disowning him and not talking to him, now I’m crying.

  • ❤️❤️❤️

  • the crane tho

  • We knew you were gay. And we don’t give a fuck. Telling people you’re gay is the equivalent to telling people you’re vegan. No one cares

  • Thank you! Thank for being exactly you! You are amazing, this is amazing! You deserve to be happy. I hope you find your happiness!

  • All your work was worth everything. It’s been so awesome and inspirational to watch the behind the scenes. Keep it up. Please don’t hide. You’re a fantastic creature. As is everyone else who stands with and behind you. ❤️❤️❤️

  • Tell people you are gay=million views on FR-tv......videos about actual world events...no one bothers to watch .

  • Wwwhhaattt?!?!? You never played Tuber Simulator??

  • Eugene we all knew lol. And you are loved regardless.

  • 8:25 this is the most relatable statement ever. the society really fucked us up as kids.

  • Crane for president!!!!

  • We 💜 you Eugene!!!!

  • Oh shit.... he is just coming out now?!?!? I've been outing him for quite some time now. I didn't know it was a secret. I wish someone would've told me. My bad.

  • Wow. This was TRULY touching. I am so proud of you Eugene and all that you have accomplished 💓 Amazing outcome

  • Because you need attention. Besides, we all know ALL try guys like it up the ass

  • 😭❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🏳️‍🌈♥️💬🌙💫✨✨🌫🌫🌑🌫🌫✨✨

  • Do people really give a shit about some guy coming out

  • Are you on the road to being happy, Eugene?

  • no matter what sexuality, eugene will always be hot

  • I always thought Eugene stood out in the Try Guys as being exceptionally intelligent and creative, and this video just confirms that. I'm absolutely blown away by the vision, hard work, and emotion that went into this. (Does anyone else think he's definitely an INFJ on the Myers-Briggs spectrum?) I've never met you, Eugene, but I'm so proud of you. Thank you for doing this!

  • Eugene is probably the most creative person ever to step on this earth while being so brave❤️🏳️‍🌈 Love and a kid still in the closet🇨🇦🏳️‍🌈

  • Thank you so much for gifting us with this, the video was so powerful and all of your emotions and hard work 100% came through.

  • Congratulations Eugene 🎉👏🌈💞💕

  • Get over the gurley dresses and makeup --- freak

  • Fucking Gross!!!!

  • True question, though: Is Eugene top or bottom?

  • i always figured you were gay

  • There's really no time for living in sin. We are in the last days, the Lord is coming back soon to judge the world. I don't wish to see anyone disappointed for all eternity. Come to Him while you still have the time and opportunity.

  • I cried watching this, after they were done shooting the purple scene and Eugene started talking, the tears instantly formed. WOW.


  • I’m so proud of you and everything you have done (and will do) ❤️

  • Why I'm monetizing these videos to make money!

  • Eugene is such an inspiration

  • Im sorry if this is rude but I always thought Eugene was gay...

  • "Wow, who could have seen this coming?"

  • Fag!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Stupendous. I'm 65, been "out" since 15. I'm so very proud of you, Eugene and so very grateful you have joined your community. We love you guys, all the Try Guys. Thank you for what you do for The Trevor Project. - a huge fan.

  • Wow who would have known... shocking.

  • I just watched this change from 3rd to 2nd on trending wow I love that

  • Wow. Thank you Eugene.

  • "Are you happy now?" "Maybe the answer is that no one is finally happy." As a person who suffered from depression as a child and now as an adult. This really got me.

  • Geez enough already

  • So, so proud! I'm glad to finally see someone come more into their self, just as I am trying (and struggling) to do myself.

  • I love seeing how you put it together. Was the end part of the green scene supposed to represent the shooting in Orlando? I might just be overthinking it, but I was curious to know if that specific transition with the guy walking in and everyone disappearing represented a significant moment or day in your life or in the world. It doesn't have to, it was a really cool transition!!!

  • Interesting I actually thought he was already publicly gay.

  • < 3 fucking love you E
