6 Big-Name YouTube Stars Who Came Out as Gay in the Past Year

By  | 


After years of avoiding questions about his sexuality, Ricky Dillon finally opened up about it this past September. He explained, “I don’t know what I am. I’m nothing; I’m none of the above…If I were to label myself, I would be closest to asexual. I don’t have a sexual attraction to anyone. I can look at a girl, I can look at a guy, and I don’t feel a sexual attraction like most people do.”

The 24-year-old’s decision to come out this year may have shocked some people, but he definitely wasn’t alone; other big-name YouTube stars also decided to open up about their sexual orientation in 2016. We already rounded up the YT celebs who came out as bisexual, but now it’s time to talk about those who bravely came out as gay/lesbian in the past year.
