Two Months After Coming Out as Gay, a YouTube Star Now Has a New S.O.
This Christmas is going to be extra special for one musical.ly star! Internet sensation Jackson Krecioch knew he was gay from a very young age, but didn’t come out until this past October. “I think I knew I was gay by the time I was 12, but from then to 17 I never accepted it. I would just deny it every time it came to my head,” he said.
While the 18-year-old didn’t accept himself until pretty recently, he’s taken amazing strides in the past few months. In fact, he’s comfortable enough with his sexuality that he felt compelled to introduce his thousands of followers to his new boyfriend, Aaron Fuller.
According to his Instagram page, Aaron is a 16-year-old model who hails from Texas.
“So happy I can call you mine @aaronxfuller,” the Internet king wrote on Twitter a few days before making the couple Insta-official.
As Jackson said in his coming-out video, he wants to be honest with his audience in order to inspire them to be themselves.
“If anyone out there is going through the same thing, I just want to let you know that it’s okay. You are amazing the way you are. Don’t change yourself for anybody else. Be you.”
Congratulations to the happy new couple!!
Jackson is just one popular YouTube star who came out as gay in the past year:
