Eugene Lee Yang has officially come out in the most creative way.
Eugene Yang is a member of the popular YouTube channel and comedy group The Try Guys. The group originated out of Buzzfeed before branching off into its own company. Along with his three friends and colleagues, Eugene creates a variety of videos that touch on trying and experiencing different things like racing, farming, parenthood, being a pet owner, performing drag, trying products like underwear, makeup, food, and more.
For some time, Eugene has been fairly quiet about his romantic and sex life. But over the years, while the three other Try Guys have gone on to get married or settle down with female partners, Eugene has started to open up about his sexual orientation and romantic life. In the past year or two, the YouTuber, actor, and director has openly discussed being a part of the LGBTQ community and has even taken on a drag persona.
And now, Eugene has created a touching and creative video to officially come out as gay.
In the below video, titled “I’m Gay – Eugene Lee Yang,” we see Eugene expressing several instances in his life such as growing up gay in an Asian-American household, dealing with religion while being attracted to men, blossoming in the queer community, and more.
Trust us when we say, this video is a must watch.
In addition to Eugene sharing more about his sexual orientation and perspective on life, the video also has a great purpose in fundraising. The Try Guys have created a campaign to have viewers donate to the Trevor Project.
As the Try Guys wrote below the video:
“The Trevor Project is the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ young people. The organization works to save young lives by providing support through free and confidential suicide prevention and crisis intervention programs on platforms where young people spend their time: a 24/7 phone lifeline, chat, and text counseling services.”
So far, the video has raised $15,552 in donations to the Trevor Project. If you wish to contribute, you can head over to this link.
