  • You are perfect Eugene 100 billion percent. You are a beautiful person inside and out.

  • Sometimes I hate being gay. Whey does everything have to be a big production?

  • Beautiful and gutwrenching all at the same time. Great job. As an ally I have been "the girl", but never realized the significance of it. It made me realize how important it is just being there for your friend or family member. The letter that young Eugene wrote to himself, I completely get. Growing up in the decade that he did, it was not as accepting as it is now. We still have a long way to go, but it has gotten better.

  • I'm coming out gay too

  • 8:12 hit HARD. That was exactly my childhood. Sensitive, crying often, and one day I was told to stop... so I did.

  • So, not many people express their feelings of depression, and us out there that are depressed, just feel like we live in a shell and other people don't get what we go through, so thank you Eugene.

  • You go dude! 🙂👍

  • This made me cry more than once 😍🤩❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🏳️‍🌈

  • Why when my friends or people I kinda know keep asking me if I'm lesbian gets me now annoyed. They say to me "*my dad would love me no matter what*". At least your dad didn't disown you and threaten you. At least your nan and aunt didn't say "*we HATE the gays and I wish they could BURN IN HELL*"

  • Eugene is so fucking beautiful. This video is so fucking beautiful. I think everyone should be proud of being on the same planet as this brave creature. He has bee scared and depressed his whole life of who he is. Even though this video must have been fucking scary for him to make, he did make it. Eugene, you are a beautiful person and you can be proud of yourself as should anyone else be of you. Don’t ever let people tell you that you are bad, because you are not and you’ve never been.

  • i live for the thumbnail

  • “Why I’m Coming Out As Gay” One word: money

  • I am so proud of you even though I don't literally know you personally 😢💖✨

  • I didn’t believe he was gay until reading these comments.

  • i knew it

  • I was binging on Try it Guys video and the last one I saw was Eugene's Coming Out Dance. As I watched it I began crying because cruelty and intolerance are something that hurt me deeply in any form. My 8 year old daughter asked me why I was crying and so I explained it to her and showed her the whole video. Thank you for helping me just a little bit teach my daughter to be a loving, compassionate, and non-judgemental human.

  • *Am I finally gonna be happy* Me: I ask myself that everyday

  • I’m gay

  • I love Eugene Also I’m bi

  • I cried way to much

  • We love you for who you are. Anyone that can't accept you as you are doesn't matter.

  • eugene: "i need, like, a stiff drink." [everyone liked that]

  • The earrings in the green scene are BOMB

  • I love him! ❤️🏳️‍🌈😭

  • The fact that I'm still watching this, months after it came out (pun not intended) is not at all shocking. Hearing the motivation and the explanation to each little detail. Explaining his pain, explaining all the awful and amazing stuff that lead up to this moment. It's beautiful. Getting to understand the hesitation and fear of what the public may think, it makes it more easy to relate to him, no matter what your gender or sexuality is. The choreography is amaizng, so thought out with ever movement and step. The costumes, how they contribute to each and every scene and the reasoning behind all of the color schemes. Just everything leading up this, and the fact the other Try Guys were so happy and excited for Eugene, just everything that is captured both in this video and the actual coming out video is fucking beautiful.

    • I really wana meet him now , I'm feeling Soo happy just watching him


  • Good job Eugene I very happy for you and you got say something to my mom and dad that I am gay :)

  • i feel the same way my mans

  • We love you as you are boo

  • 1:17 this is so sweet oh my god

  • Its not the try guys now😅

    • What do you mean? It's still the try guys, except Eugene is gay.

  • My mom says im not bi she tells me i dont know unless ive been with a girl sexually i wish i could explain how i feel with my girlfreind she thinks im making her gay i havent been with her sexualy but i know what i feel for her is somthing that is more then what she thinks it is

  • apparently every gay guy is attractive except me

  • It's truly sad how much dislikes this has.........😢

    • @Delaney Strotman It feels good. I also like to punch out gay people.

    • @Troll Master Well I wonder what it feels likes to be horrible human being.....

  • quick props to kane- not only did he do a phenomenal job documenting this process, he knew he was asking sensitive questions. even though eugene is the type of person who would be okay answering, he still asked them in a way that wasn’t forceful but at the same time not super hesitant. well done, kane.

  • I love you and your work, the production was beautiful I love all of the try fam❤️

  • ew

  • We love you Eugene

  • Eugene is sincerelly such an inspiration, not just for people of the lgbtq community, but for young people like my self who also face similar challenges about putting up a mask and not be able to be true to oneself and the problems he faced with his family. And the part about asking if he was happy sincerely broke my heart, I ask myself the same question every day, and to know that someone as amazing as eugene has similar problems really makes me feel like less of an outcast. I love u so much eugene, I love what u do and the person u have become. U are amazing, no matter what, I hope u finally become happy one day.

  • Guessing everyone in the comment sections from l.a or San Francisco

  • I support you

  • eugene is the first asian person i know who is part of the lgbt+ community and i respect that also im not tryna be stereotype or anything!! im just saying that eugene is a big influence towards me because im asian aswell

  • If anyone that is watching and are homophobic die please nobody wants you here

    • I'm not saying I support them, and I recently found out I am pan, but an opinion is an opinion. As long as their not rude about it, it doesn't really matter. Honestly, telling someone to die and that nobody wants them here is just as bad.

    • Ur so close minded

    • Hate doesn't get rid of hate dumb ass 💀

  • Daughter:i like girls Dad:ok Daughter:I'm lesbian too Dad:is there anyone here who likes guys? Son:me This isn't original I just found it funny lol

  • That’s pretty gay

  • Wow amazing guys..

  • Idc that he is gay and here me out I love Eugene and I don't love him more or less but he is himself and work your stuff

  • Its someone happiness that matters no matter what Eugene do what you want we love as you are men👌👌👌👌👌👊👊👊

  • i just love and respect and admire eugene and this project so fucking much. he said he can't give the 100% of his inside world yet, but still this is SO MUCH, literally one of the bravest individuals i know.

  • I'm gonna watch all these ads because my boy Eugene deserves all the cranes he wants ❤ At this point I know this video by heart (almost) but I still cry every single time.

  • Okay Why are his parents a pair of snacks?👀😍

  • as someone who haven't fully come out to themselves and to their friends, i cried during this whole video

    • @Charlotte Barakat aw, thank you so much

    • I hope you get to a place where you can fully accept yourself, and your friends understand 🖤

  • I knew it:-) :-)

  • ........

  • Happy is a feeling. It's not a destination.

  • Eugene you are amazing! No matter what anyone says, accept yourself! You are beautiful! Be true and be proud. Don’t let anyone tell you who to be or who to love. This goes to everyone! Love yourself and don’t care about if others do too.

  • I dont kare if your gay😑

  • ❤❤❤❤❤We love you eugene no matter what❤❤❤❤❤

  • Fuck gays you all suck

    • Tell me, I would really like to know. Why did you feel that way towards completely innocent people?
