    Waited to watch this because I knew it was gonna make me cry, and when it got the scene imitating the Pulse massacre I lost it. This was a beautiful video and story, thank you for telling it. #OrlandoStrong.

    When I say him do that guys try drag I'm like ohh this boy found him😍😍😍😍self😍😍😍😍

  • Alexander Hamilton

    I nearly started crying watching this. Despite no words, the movement, facial expressions, music, and let alone emotion spoke very loudly to me. I don't know how you guys managed to pull it off but I am greatful to have found this. After coming out as bisexual and transgender (ftm) my family doesn't accept and a very close friend of mine constantly presses for answers. It is hard but at the end is what got me. Eugene's face shows pride yet fear for what is still yet to come and to happen to him and others like him.

    I feel all the heart, blood, and soul breathed into this. I had tears through it all. I loved it.

      This took a lot of courage from Eugene to have the bravery to come out to the world. You are clearly not accepting of that and you do not need to share that with Eugene or the LGBTQ+ community. They know that people like you are everywhere in the world and they have learned to co-exist with you. They have people who love and care for who they truly are. So please think before you write offensive and homophobic comments. Thank you.

    Would have been more shocked if he came out as straight XD
    But seriously great video and you rock Eugene

  • Samantha Caamano

    As members of the lgbt+ community, we go through so much everyday even though it seems like we're finally gaining some acceptance. Yes, we have allies. But there are many foes that we face almost everyday of our lives, and that's why we stick together. That's why we stand up for each other. As a bisexual person, you have no idea how many times people tell me to "make up my mind" or "just pick a side." Trans men and women purposefully being called the wrong gender, gay men and lesbians just simply getting stares when they hold hands with their partners in public, parents shielding their children's eyes when we walk by them, death threats, bullying, crude actions done towards us. It's why some of us are suicidal. I'm so glad Eugene came out in such an artistic manner. It really shows that we have a vision as a community. We're just like everyone else. We're people. Thanks Buzzfeed for raising these donations. It means a lot to me to save the young lives of our people who still have hope for change in our society. We are the change. We are the future.

    For anyone who doesn't understand the ending, look back to the beginning of the video in which Eugene is the only member of his family wearing color, a dress no less. He clearly doesn't fit in and there's tension between him and his father, which is later confirmed when Eugene comes out and his father attacks him for it. At the end of the video, Eugene is in an even more flamboyant sequined dress while other queer men join him in the same living room set where he sat with his bio family.
    The drag queens aren't his friends, nor are they thrown in to make the video more showy and artsy -- they're supposed to represent FOUND FAMILY. Eugene's facial expression isn't one of joy, it's one of determination -- he has the strength to keep going even when he had to replace his bio family members with his found family members. This is often the case for members of the LGBTQ+ community. We have to find our family when our friends and family can't accept who we are. It was a brilliant way to close the video and offers a message of hope to all the lost, lonely queer kids out there. Thanks, Eugene!

    Really did not expect that, all I know is it takes a lot for someone to come out or even just to express themselves to the world, especially in today’s age. Still one of my favorite Try Guys, Congrats, Eugene! Definitely a powerful message to everyone who sees this.

  • Living_Life_ With_Epilepsy

    It’s got me so emotional and somethings that I understood and it also make me feel sorry 😢 for Eugene because of the ways his father at was beating him and his mother was just upset and walked inside it doesn’t just get me emotional it probably get everyone who is Bi, gay, trans, homosexual ,heterosexual any kind, I’m straight but that really got to me so be kind to people who are bi, trans, homo, gay because they always might do the same for you? 😊
