    It's so sad that he has to still feel like he's letting half of the people down and half of them accepting. It's not fair!!

    I have been wanting to come out to my dad for a while but I don't know how to do it. He is open to LGBTQ community but I don't know how he would respond to his daughter being Bisexual. My mom, therapist and close friends already know but I'm not sure about how to tell him. Please tell me if you have any advice or suggestions I'll appreciate anything.

    This is what happens when you surround yourself with people of certain mindsets. You will follow him. This wasn’t his choice, the liberals of buzzfeed made him change.

    I'm about to cry watching this video. I really don't get why someone of a minority has to feel like they're representing the whole community. You really don't have to speak for all Asians or all LGBT or all Koreans, Eugene ❤ but I'm sure we all appreciate you doing it and the amazing art you create ❤

    who in their right mind,after we've been with Eugene for 5+ years, just abandons him because he's gay. If somebody did that, that is really cruel.

    The “I’m Gay” video has helped me so much, especially considering the fact I’m a trans bisexual male. It’s great feeling that I’m not alone and even though I’m not out to my parents, I still feel important to people I’m close too. Thank you Eugene!

    I'm 39 and still have never told my family in bi or pan. I've only had one committed female relationship (a bunch of flings) and I hid it...from everyone...considering I lived in Philly which is incredibly diverse. My friends would be been absolutely fine. It destroyed my relationship. She was wonderful and now 15 years later I still feel guilty.
