13 of Your Favorite YouTube Stars That Came Out in Their Videos
YouTube is all about being open and sharing anything and everything that comes to mind. Seriously, YouTubers share EVERYTHING. Remember when Colleen Ballinger-Evans aka Miranda Sings announced her ~pregnancy~ on her channel? How about the time Joey Graceffa introduced the world to his new man after MONTHS of speculation? Basically, this platform is the perfect place to make big announcements.
That being said, perhaps the biggest announcement of them all is when a YT star takes the brave step to come out in a video. To be so open and vulnerable in front of millions is, without question, one of the toughest things a person can do, so all of the YouTubers who have mustered up the courage to share their sexuality with the world deserve some serious kudos. To see which of your faves came out via YT vid, scroll through the gallery now.
Connor has over five million subscribers on YouTube and back in 2014 he decided to tell all of them that he was gay. Before his December 8 video titled "Coming Out," he had denied that he was homosexual and even posted a video months before called "I'm Not Gay." During his video, he talked about how he dated girls in the past to "be normal," but then started to really think about his true sexual identity in college. Connor was truthful and very articulate throughout, and ended the vid by saying, "I don't want anyone to be afraid; I don't want anyone holding back who they are." So inspirational!
