  1. I would highly recommend watching the behind the scenes video first, it will help to understand the meaning of each scene. Eugene I applaud you for your hard work and dedication!!

  2. I'm not usually one to comment on YouTube videos, but this was such an emotive labour of love that I couldn't not. Eugene, this was such a beautiful way to get your message and perspective across about not only homosexuality but also the LQBTQ+ community, and how others respond to it.
    I'm also exponentially impressed with your dancing everytime I watch this. Just pure emotion. I'm still crying. I can't hold it together. I've been following the Try Guys pre and post Buzzfeed and I'm so so proud of what you've made here. Easily the best piece of video I've seen in a long long time.

  3. This is amazing normally people just say I’m whatever Eugene let’s make a movie for the internet so everyone knows and Eugene congratulations LGBTG like if you support 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈

  4. Eugene, you made me cry. This is a very beautiful video – Amazing shot and composed. I am bi myself and it can be a confusing thing to be. There will always be ups and downs in our lives, but stuff like this makes you smile and wanna hear your story. Not what everyone else tells you to be or what they want and expect from you. I truly loved it. Great work:)

  5. This is absolutely beautiful. This really touched my heart dearly. It’s so difficult to show your true self, when you’re around people who discriminate. I have no words on how much I adore this. This is everything to me. Astonishing.

  6. This is a masterpiece. You should feel extremely proud of how much meaning and emotion you were able to emulate in just 5 minutes. I can't wait to see what your next personal project is, your work is truly inspiring. The world needs more directors that are proud to be in the community!

  7. Watched the run through if behind the scenes before this. I’m a mtf lesbian transgender, and about a year ago I just stopped crying. I seem to have become more emotionally vulnerable as well. Being almost 15 I really get a lot of the parts where you are simply told no or beaten down for being yourself. I cried. I have never felt less lonely than I did watching that video. I am extremely happy for you for being able to come out, and bitch yes, be that one overly dramatic person who makes a coming out video that big! Anyway, I know you probably won’t see this but I needed to say it anyway.

  8. Holy fucking shit, Eugene, s l a y. I'm proud of you for being yourself and expressing your true colors to the world. It takes a lot of courage to open up and share something like this when it'sbeen oppressed for so many years. Thank you for trusting us with this vital part of your life 💞

  9. I cried so bad because I’m still struggling to come out to my family who doesn’t support the LGBTQ+ community. I’ve been through all that he’s felt and it sucks. Thanks for the beautiful video Eugene, we love and support you all the same❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

  10. Not part of the LGBTQ+ but we’re a on this earth and why bash people just let them be who they wont to become and let each thrive in there own way and in there own community
