Basically I'm Gay5
Let me tell you a queer little story about a boy named Dan.
Follow me online to see the rest of my tale as it unfolds in real time:

Content warning: this video contains far too much strong language and discussions of general sexuality, discriminatory language, bullying and an attempt on my own life. Otherwise totally appropriate for education, instilling good values in young children and my grandma who I will expect a disappointed text from.



Soundtrack:

Handel - Messiah
Camille Saint-Saëns - Danse Macabre
Tchaikovsky - 1812 Overture
Chopin - Fantasie Impromptu
Schubert - Ave Maria


Disclaimer - This video is just a starting point for me, what I felt was the bare minimum (ha) required for me to get this out there so I can move forward with my life, a mix of explanation, justification and opinion. It scratched the surface of several things I could have gone into more detail about, but the purpose of this was to be ..reasonably concise and above all entertaining. In the future, in the right places, I will surely talk much more about everything touched on in this video and more. It’s also likely that something will get misunderstood or misrepresented, perhaps from the way I phrased things or people assuming my thoughts on things that I didn’t specify. Also my story is just the truth of what happened to me and what I thought at certain points of time in my environment, good and bad - of course not my opinions today. So JUST to be clear my opinion on general sexual and gender identities are that everyone is valid and deserves equal rights and the freedom to exist. The only thing I don’t tolerate is intolerance. Cheers to an inevitable bright future, either because people become nice and the old people die or the sun explodes first lmao.

I’ve watched you and Phil both since I was 15 or so. I was incredibly depressed and borderline suicidal and I wanted to die. I went to YouTube and your video of “inside Dans brain” was in my recommended. I’ve been hooked ever since and I’m 21 now. I’m so proud of how far you’ve come and I can’t wait to see what you do in the future, because I know you probably feel more free now. I’m so happy for you 😭💕

Gotta be honest, I'm not a follower of yours, but I found this on my feed and I decided to check it out. And I gotta thank you for helping your fans to feel more comfortable with themselves and making them know they're valid.

And I agree with a lot of stuff you say, not only the self-deprecating humor, lol, but also the good things. You seem like a great person and I'm glad that you are in a good place, and that you are now inspiring a lot of people to be more comfortable with themselves.

I really appreciate it, and I think we need more people that think like that.
