    I always thought you were too, damn, sexy to be completely, 100%, straight.

    God Bless You, My Brother. You go now, and have BEAUTIFUL LIFE! OK?

    Much Love. My Very Best. Out.

    I've been watching the try guys for about a year now... and I always assumed he was already out as gay. I never thought he was straight, so when he put out these videos I was very confused.

    Eugene, you're such an amazing person. A year ago I was very down on my luck, I was confused about who I was, stressed on what my parents would think. I was on the verge of ending it all. I started watching these videos and it helped so much more. I had cut myself so badly 7 months ago that I had gone to the hospital. I was on the verge of a coma and a blood transplant was need stat. I was a hairline of life, a small amount of joy knowing I would live better. After seeing this I've been clean from drinking, cutting, and hatefulness. You've helped me so much, I was basically dead and you helped me so much, thank you. I'm almost on my 14th birthday on December 28th. Thank you so much.

    Get the book "The Survival Guide To Bullying" because it's about yourself a gay and all about how to be yourself to be proud
    Here's a quote "for the girl and boy
    For the the gay and straight
    For the fat and skinny
    For the short and tall
    For the wrong and the struggling

    y o u a r e n e v e r a l o n e."

    It’s upsetting to find out that someone as amazing and brave as Eugene felt like he had to hide part of who he is from the audience.

    Honestly, you don’t often think about try guys as a serious business where it budgets and I do have to say I’m grateful the other guys saw and respected Eugene’s vision. It truly reaches all of us who are othered and it’s so touching.

    I feel like crying. The world is already complicated and difficult enough as is, why is it that people just have to further complicate it by making others feel uncomfortable and afraid to just be themselves.

      Hmm, so did you choose to watch this video yourself or were you strapped down while you had this rubbed in your face?

    My heart breaks for him like my heart breaks for Hannah Gadsby when she talks about being steeped in self hate and shame. It is not right for any child to be raised that way. It isn't something you can just flip a switch and turn off. I work very hard both as a parent and a Kindergarten teacher to be a safe space for all. I hope this is the experience of fewer and fewer LGBTQ+ kids.

    8:25 Made me cry :'(. Everyone should be able to accept who they are and others should support. Pains me that a lot can't because of culture or religion. Eugene, you have my support as well as others. Be yourself and love yourself.
