    Eugene. You are amazing. Don't be afraid or nervous to tell us. Even if people don't like you for who you are doesn't mean you don't have people that cares about you. Be who you want to be. Your inspiring. Don't let anybody let you down.

    I know it's not meant to represent this, but the scene where the girl is leaping after him just reminds that in the end you have to be happy for someone no matter how much you loved them.

    This makes so much sense. I always noticed he acted inauthentic with a hyper masculine persona that just didn't feel natural.

    Watching this video again months later and it is still one of the best ones I have ever seen. Eugene you are strong for going forward with this and the idea of you, someone who doesn’t owe us anything, giving us this part of you makes me respect you more for it
    The emotions you display and all of the meanings in everything here is beautiful and I hope you never let anyone define you

    I will admit I never noticed until I watched the making of this how the people wearing black are supportive and the ones wearing white are against.
    That is a change since everything always associate white with good and black with bad

    This has to be the most beautiful coming out video I've ever seen. Also, in most Try Guys video, Eugene comes off as a very reserved, private person- to me at least. Here he shares a part of himself in such an artistic way, and the entire act conveys emotions that cannot be put into words...man. It's like seeing him in a completely new light (admittedly I haven't seen too many Try Guys videos, so...) Who knew he could dance and choreograph and direct so well?
    This is so Goddamn beautiful.

    To be honest, im a straight guy and i really dun like gay. But seeing this video lets me view things differently now. Like how much stress a gay would potentially face if they chose to be who they r. I guess it is also under pressure by society that makes some of the gay nt willing to expose their intented gender and instead express their actual gender which they dun really wan to be. After seeing this video i guess i dun hate gays and instead i respect them for their courage to freely express themselves and not take the society's judgemental views seriously. Thank you eugene for such a breathtaking video. I learned alot of hardship tat gay hav and i respect that now. Thank you.

    I recognized that Eugene's outfits are rainbow oriented, but I think nobody's noticed that after the preacher goes to the stage the background characters get separated in to black and white. Before they where black, white and gray showing that they aren't LGBTQ+ orientated(peps that are colored are LGBTQ+). The Priest goes on and Eugene realizes that some people are against it(the white colored), while others stand up for the LGBTQ+ community(black). The grays are inbetween. Hope you understand this more now.

    Ok don't want to ask any dumb questions but is Eugene gay? Or is this just a thing for the sake of the video?

    I'm bisexual, but the thing is I can't come out to my parents. I've come out to my mom... but than she asked me a few months later if I still felt the same way, I decided to hide to fact that I am bisexual and say it was a phase. My dad, and my other family members would hate me if I told them. So I don't know how to tell them... Or if I want to

    This was absolutely beautiful. It moved me to tears. I'm only sorry it took me so long to see. There is a man who is becoming one of my best friends and he is one of Ontario, Canada's foremost (and award winning) advocates for the LGBTQIA+ community, as well as a fantastic Queen. I just had to share this with him. How could I not? Eugene, I am so proud of you, and heartbroken for your struggles. I have watched you become yourself through the years and applauded every step you took to becoming truer to your inner self. This was wonderful.

    I always come back to this when I see a bunch of anti LGBT comments. Saying stuff like; if we kept to ourselves we wouldn’t have to deal with violence. I try not to let it affect me. But sometimes is hurts to be so hated when I have nothing but potential for love in my heart.

    To every person who disliked this video, "You are being unsporting and hurtful to someone who means a lot to a lot of people... and, a question, why when someone is being brave would you look down on them and instead of being loving bring hate.. absolutely NOT cool."
