YouTube Star Comes Out As Bisexual
Shane Dawson, a YouTube legend who has over 6 million subscribers, came out to the Internet as bisexual recently. Dawson has a very popular YouTube channel and is known for having very funny videos, mostly parodies and sketches.
This time, the video was more sombre and emotional, with Dawson talking about how he has been very confused about his sexuality for a long time. He said that he almost wishes that he was completely gay, but he is not, adding that he is open for love no matter the gender.
The 26-year-old also talked about how he grew up in a very religious and conservative family setting and how he had to suppress his confusion growing up, adding that this led to bouts of severe depression and obesity. The video is 15 minutes long and very emotional, with Dawson almost breaking down several times while talking about his journey on the path to defining and accepting his sexuality.
