Sometimes I hate being gay. Whey does everything have to be a big production?

Beautiful and gutwrenching all at the same time. Great job. As an ally I have been "the girl", but never realized the significance of it. It made me realize how important it is just being there for your friend or family member. The letter that young Eugene wrote to himself, I completely get. Growing up in the decade that he did, it was not as accepting as it is now. We still have a long way to go, but it has gotten better.

8:12 hit HARD. That was exactly my childhood. Sensitive, crying often, and one day I was told to stop... so I did.

So, not many people express their feelings of depression, and us out there that are depressed, just feel like we live in a shell and other people don't get what we go through, so thank you Eugene.

Why when my friends or people I kinda know keep asking me if I'm lesbian gets me now annoyed. They say to me "*my dad would love me no matter what*". At least your dad didn't disown you and threaten you. At least your nan and aunt didn't say "*we HATE the gays and I wish they could BURN IN HELL*"

Eugene is so fucking beautiful. This video is so fucking beautiful. I think everyone should be proud of being on the same planet as this brave creature. He has bee scared and depressed his whole life of who he is. Even though this video must have been fucking scary for him to make, he did make it. Eugene, you are a beautiful person and you can be proud of yourself as should anyone else be of you. Don’t ever let people tell you that you are bad, because you are not and you’ve never been.

I was binging on Try it Guys video and the last one I saw was Eugene's Coming Out Dance. As I watched it I began crying because cruelty and intolerance are something that hurt me deeply in any form. My 8 year old daughter asked me why I was crying and so I explained it to her and showed her the whole video. Thank you for helping me just a little bit teach my daughter to be a loving, compassionate, and non-judgemental human.

The fact that I'm still watching this, months after it came out (pun not intended) is not at all shocking. Hearing the motivation and the explanation to each little detail. Explaining his pain, explaining all the awful and amazing stuff that lead up to this moment. It's beautiful. Getting to understand the hesitation and fear of what the public may think, it makes it more easy to relate to him, no matter what your gender or sexuality is. The choreography is amaizng, so thought out with ever movement and step. The costumes, how they contribute to each and every scene and the reasoning behind all of the color schemes. Just everything leading up this, and the fact the other Try Guys were so happy and excited for Eugene, just everything that is captured both in this video and the actual coming out video is fucking beautiful.

quick props to kane- not only did he do a phenomenal job documenting this process, he knew he was asking sensitive questions. even though eugene is the type of person who would be okay answering, he still asked them in a way that wasn’t forceful but at the same time not super hesitant. well done, kane.

Eugene is sincerelly such an inspiration, not just for people of the lgbtq community, but for young people like my self who also face similar challenges about putting up a mask and not be able to be true to oneself and the problems he faced with his family. And the part about asking if he was happy sincerely broke my heart, I ask myself the same question every day, and to know that someone as amazing as eugene has similar problems really makes me feel like less of an outcast. I love u so much eugene, I love what u do and the person u have become. U are amazing, no matter what, I hope u finally become happy one day.

I'm not saying I support them, and I recently found out I am pan, but an opinion is an opinion. As long as their not rude about it, it doesn't really matter. Honestly, telling someone to die and that nobody wants them here is just as bad.
