  • Eugene, I watched this video after watching the documentary on the making of this video. What you have expressed in these five minutes takes me well beyond words. My heart bleeds for you and your community. I truly hope you find peace within yourself and the happiness you absolutely deserve. In my mind and worldview, how someone identifies has nothing to do with whether I think they are good or bad. I’m sorry that this isn’t a universal truth. You have a powerful voice and I hope you can continue to make the world easier for those who come after you, those 14 year olds who watch you and hold on to hope of finding their place in the world too.

  • I cried this whole video because I'm going through this as a closeted gay or half gay and I'm afraid of talking about it or coming out because I feel as if I will be left alone and feared for who I like. Same gender or not people shouldn't go through this because it does cause a lot of pain. I suffer with deep depression and anxiety for about 4 years because of it.

  • This is beautiful and painful. I'm very much in the same ballpark as Eugene (Non-binary and pansexual) and he portrayed his struggles in such a raw amazing way I can't help but cry. The fight isn't over but we are strong and can band together to help lift each other out of the fighting. It's my hope that someday there won't be violence anymore toward gay or lesbian or trans or that people won't be dismissed like bi and ace and so many more. I love you Eugene, I'm so so proud of you.

  • This is so text book Eugene and I'm living for it. Tbh I didnt realised he hadn't come out yet, I always assumed he was on the queer spectrum anyway. I dont know any 100% straight man who as well put together as Eugene.

  • There's a lot more to life then just black and white and the 50 shades of grey in between. This video may not have had a similar impact if Eugene was straight but just had Feminine characteristic. But the message still works. The struggle people have to face by not beating to the same drum of the "norm" is exhausting and terrifying. Its seems its always just black or white and sometimes grey, but never colorful. Whoever you are reading this let your colors shine. Don't let society or people around you, force you to contain those colors. The more you break that mold of the norm, the more society will learn to move on. It will be a struggle. But a change in order was never about simplicity, it has always been about chaos. But we can learn to find a peace in that chaos. Start by supporting individuals who are "colorful" and being the best of who YOU are. There's nothing wrong with seeing in black and white, but neither is there with seeing color.

  • This is touching. Being gay isnt easy when people dont accept it. The LGBT community faces so many struggles even in this day and age. We will never give up and stop fighting for what is rightfully ours. And that is the freedom to express who we are without judgement or discrimination. To whoever is reading this, take pride in who you are

  • Excuse me, currently bawling my eyes out. We all love and support you Eugene! As a bi teenager in Alabama this hit home in many ways, and even now I'm struggling to find myself through all the conditioning and hatred around me and this powerful, beautiful, amazing video just... gives me strength and hope for my future. Thank you so much, as soon as i get another job and get financially stable again my first act of "unnecessary" spending will be to donate to The Trevor Project and support those just like me and you, struggling in this age of hidden hatred and underhanded blows.
