    I honestly could just tell he was gay and it wasnt just because he's too pretty to be straight

    I wish i had something like this when i came out.....i just did it at a restaurant so my mom wouldn't hit me but i came out to a friend when i was 11 and it turned out she liked me we started dating and when i was 14 i felt it was time to come out cuz i felt it was time, so i did it in a public place so i wouldn't get screamed at or hit.

    So if/when Eugene decides to get married, do you all change the name of Try Wives Wine Time or does Eugene envision being married to a man that says "Hell yeah I'll be a Try Wife!" ?

      He doesn't do makeup. He's not problematic. Most importantly, he's not some petulant twink that sexually harasses straight men.

    Eugene, it doesn't matter what culture you come from, everyone deserves to be happy. You need to do what makes you happy. You'll never be happy as long as you live your life to make others happy. We support you!!!

    I've been following the Try Guys since they started. I can't help think of all those videos where Eugene was so visibly uncomfortable talking about feelings and now look at him.The transformation is so awesome and probably from a lot of hard emotional work. How fucking courageous, not just because of the main coming out factor, but just from a full mental health perspective. Good for him.

    I’ve always said this and now I truly know I’m right. I’m so glad that Eugene is part of the try guys. To be a gay Asian man in a group with 3 straight white men and they love, support, and accept him 100% no matter what makes me so happy. He can comfortably wear the clothes he wants to wear around them and there’s no judgment. I love the try guys even more for this

    Absolutely no speculation here folks! Who didn't know Eugene wasn't gay? Not shocked at all. I feel like the video is unnecessary. What you do in your bedroom is your business. Should have donated the money to an LGBTQIAH cause.

    I wish you weren't gay because you, nor anyone else, deserves the inner turmoil you have to fight through along with the outside trying to tear you down. Myself and so many others are incredibly proud of you and love you as you are. You should never have to feel that you need to hide being gay because you are truly a beautiful person, inside and out and the addition of being gay doesn't change that and shouldn't change others opinions of you. Big love to you Eugene, you truly are an inspiration to the community.

  • Elizabeth Lambert

    Who didn’t know Eugene was gay? It doesn’t make him better or worse. He is simple Eugene, funny, handsome, charismatic, stylish, and loving (even if he is terrified of babies, Eugene baby sitting was awesome😂). I’m proud of him for making a video about it and I hope it makes him feel whole but honestly I don’t see him any differently. The best question I have ever heard come from a gay man was “so when did you know you were straight?” Totally made me realize how being straight is never questioned but the gay community is asked constantly “so when did you know you were gay?”. Also, why should anyone care sexual orientation unless you are interested in dating said person? I love all my friends and family but I don’t want to know about their sex life. It doesn’t change who they are.
    Good for you, Eugene, for being strong enough to announce to the world who you are. I’m proud of you but it doesn’t change how I feel about you or the other try guys for supporting you. All of you (including those behind the screen) do an amazing job, you make me laugh and your group makes wonderfully entertaining videos. Keep up the good work.

    This made me cry. The way he feels responsible to represent and support the lgbtq+ and the Korean community is amazing but it seems like it is also very hard on him. When he talked about not wanting to lose with games/competitions/trying thing w the try guys, it rlly moved me but it was also very logical to me. I love him and I really hope he isnt too hard on himself..🌈❤💛💚💙💜😍

    I dont to be happy is a destination...I trully believe is a process within ourselfs. Or we will be forever in this wheel of wanting more. I am glad for the guy that asked if he was happier now after his vision was out...great swift. Maybe more could be like this, the more we are who we are - we grow on happiness. Love you Try Guys for supporting this beautiful video and vision. Glad you did it Eugene.
