Basically I'm Gay

  • تم نشره في 2019/06/13
  • Let me tell you a queer little story about a boy named Dan.
    Follow me online to see the rest of my tale as it unfolds in real time:
    And subscribe to my channel! (lol)
    Content warning: this video contains far too much strong language and discussions of general sexuality, discriminatory language, bullying and an attempt on my own life. Otherwise totally appropriate for education, instilling good values in young children and my grandma who I will expect a disappointed text from.
    Special thanks to for production assistance.

    Disclaimer - This video is just a starting point for me, what I felt was the bare minimum (ha) required for me to get this out there so I can move forward with my life, a mix of explanation, justification and opinion. It scratched the surface of several things I could have gone into more detail about, but the purpose of this was to be ..reasonably concise and above all entertaining. In the future, in the right places, I will surely talk much more about everything touched on in this video and more. It’s also likely that something will get misunderstood or misrepresented, perhaps from the way I phrased things or people assuming my thoughts on things that I didn’t specify. Also my story is just the truth of what happened to me and what I thought at certain points of time in my environment, good and bad - of course not my opinions today. So JUST to be clear my opinion on general sexual and gender identities are that everyone is valid and deserves equal rights and the freedom to exist. The only thing I don’t tolerate is intolerance. Cheers to an inevitable bright future, either because people become nice and the old people die or the sun explodes first lmao.

    9,451,769 views. about 1/80 of these views are mine bc my ADHD ass can't focus. I got distracted by this man's BEAUTIFUL FUCKING FACE!! and his sparkly jacket... probably mostly the jacket. but also partially the face. and laughing at the jokes.

    I know this might seem really stalk-ish/fangirl or whatever, but trust me it’s not. I had a dream last night and Dan was in my dream for some weird reason, and I haven’t watched any of his videos for like a month???? Is is weird or what?

    Dan, I am so happy for you and you feeling good about yourself. The ones that support you have always wanted you to be happy. You should be happy being you and not give a shit what anyone has to say about it. You be who you are and as for anyone that does want to be in the know, that is your business and yours only. You deserve your privacy and you owe no one an explanation. Love you and you will always have my support

    Hey Dan, thank you alot for this video!
    Also im honestly pretty shocked that there are still people that deem being *insert anything that a human can be* as "unnatural".
    Isnt the fact that there is a human that is whatever they deem to be unnatural pretty much proving that it is natural ? *thinking*
    Anyways, great video that helped me a lot in hoperfully someday breaking out of my specific shackles.
