    For all the people who think this is fake it’s not. This is an important subject that can’t be overlooked. Everyone should be able to express themselves and love whoever they want without fear of losing their family. I may be straight but I’m not ignorant. Also for all the people who say it’s against the Bible wth. It may not be traditional but it’s not wrong. God teaches to love and accept people not judge them for who they are. Eugene you are an inspiration to so many young afraid people who are apart of the community.

    I'm Bisexual and I still haven't come out to my family, in fact, I haven't come out to anyone in my life. I'm 17 years old. I'm too scared bcz I had this conversation with my mother about "If I was gay, what would you do?" She gave me the most homophobic answer. And that's when I decided to keep it to myself. Maybe I'll come out to her when I am financially stable and live in my own house. You might be wondering why it's so hard for me? I'm Asian.

      As a gay man, doesn’t this seem like a stroke below love, Simon? Am I the only one who feels this way? I mean I know it’s his personal journey, but it’s his journey on camera with a team and he’s getting paid, It just doesn’t seem that important, I mean we’ve been overhwlevmed with coming out stories, and he wasn’t there and did not add to the narrative of when I came out at 14, so maybe I’m an asshole, but this seems like a vanity piec

    Every time I watch this video it makes me feel safe and strong about who I am, even when I'm not 100% sure about my sexuality yet, I just hope that one day I can have the courage and self-assurance of who I am to be able to tell my parents.
    Thank you Eugene.

    As a Christian I feel that I need to apologize for all of the Christian homophobic people in the world. They argue that being LGBTQIA+ is 'agains the bible' or that it is 'not right' but they are just scared and just to say it bluntly are awful people. I am a straight white christian female but I support the LGBTQIA+ community fully. Honestly there is absolutely no reason not to accept people for who they are and if you don't than you deserve to go to hell. You heard it from a priest's daughter. Fight Me

    The purple scene is where it gets me. It's the perfect depiction of what it's like being gay today. People pulling and pushing but all you really can do is stay graceful and affect change where you can. That's how I see it. Thank you Eugene, this video brought me to tears because everything in this video gave me imagery of what I was feeling throughout the years as a gaysian. I keep finding myself coming back to this video because I still somehow cant find the words to express how I feel but you did it without words and I absolutely aspire to be like this one day.

    This video, in my opinion, shows how society treats others because of their beliefs and how they feel. Opinions are not tolerated anymore, at least not how it was.

    I didn't think as a straight white girl that I'd have much deep emotion seeing this but as I watched this I began to cry. This is such a beautiful story that portrays such pain just because you love another gender. I feel for all those going through tough times and I'm sorry if you are being criminalized for who you are. Be safe everyone ❤️
