“The thing that kind of inspired me to come out to my family and give me that initial strength was going on to YouTube and watching a bunch of coming out videos,” he tells Larry King.

“Those videos made me realise the different kinds of reactions you can get, but ultimately it just gave me hope and strength” , he adds.

“And so I came out to my family and just became so comfortable over the years, and at the same time I built up a YouTube audience of my own, so I thought it was my opportunity to give back to the community.”
