    Wow. This is masterpiece. Why did I wait so long to see this?.. I know the answer. It's cause I thought "well I know he is gay" . But they way he expressed himself in the vedio is so freaking amazing.

      @Crimson I understand that it's a story, but I don't understand why it's all necessary for a simple coming out video. It's not like being gay is a big enough deal to warrant all of this.

      And American society is very accepting of gays.

    • Crimson

      You completely missed the point. He's telling a story. Family rejecting him, trying to pretend to be what he was not and society being a bitch. It's not spectacle, it's awareness.

    I’m sure there are many of us, who followed Eugene’s exploits on buzzfeed and with the try guys, who thought this all along, no matter the early little quips, in the vids, trying to make it seem otherwise. Your video poignantly displayed the violence, disdain and hate found in the world as well as staunch defenders and community. I hope making this video brought you that place of peace amongst the turbulence. ✌️
