YouTube sensation Eugene Lee Yang has come out in a music video released today called, “I’m Gay.”
“I created this music video as my personal way of coming out as a proud gay man who has many unheard, specific stories to tell,” says The Try Guys artist.
The Try Guys have nearly 6 million subscribers on YouTube.
The five-minute contemporary dance piece, posted on Saturday during Pride Month, was shared via The Try Guys official YouTube account and is described as an original, deeply personal music video.
“I created this music video as my personal way of coming out as a proud gay man who has many unheard, specific stories to tell,” wrote Yang in a Twitter post when sharing the video. “I withheld because of fear and shame shaped by my background but I promise to give my full truth in the rest of my life’s work.”
Yang is part of the viral video quartet that makes up The Try Guys, along with Keith Habersberger, Ned Fulmer and Zach Kornfeld. The foursome began posting videos while working together at BuzzFeed at 2014 and have since launched a production company. Their online comedy series streams on YouTube.
The video also serves as fundraiser for The Trevor Project. The Trevor Project is the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ young people.
