I’m sorry but who didn’t know he was gay??
*SUPPORT* I support you so much and thank you for coming out/ getting enough courage to come out in front of millions of people!
He is simply a genius
Here why Because we need moneyyyyy
Those Guys Making Millions Of That One Video.. Don't Spend It All On Coke Guys🤔🤔💨💨😎😎😂😂
Why they making coming out as gay cool?
I always thought Eugene was cool and that will NEVER EVER CHANGE..and plus i think gay couples are cute. I dont know my sexuality yet but how cares😑😐. Oh yeah.. i always got gay vibes from Eugene... but i didn't want to assume things. Any way happy pride month everyone ❤💛💚💙💜... YASS QUEENS!
this is incredible.
Who honestly gives a fuck, his whole existence is shaped by his sexuality which shows how shallow his personality is. Just be gay, why does it have to define everything about you
Yoo the Savage
The people that did a dislike this put that up your ass because know one asked you to watch this😒
Eugene you are beautiful, strong and brave because of who you are and no one can take that from you. Our world is changing at high speed all the time and it's people like you that start the motion. Always be true to you!!!!
Ever since the first time I watched my first try guys video, I knew eugene was gay. I understand that it is a very big deal to publicly announce your sexuality. (Note, I have no experience in this whatsoever) but me, gay, straight, bi, pan, and any other type of love is just that.. LOVE. No one should be judged for it. I think you are a fantastic person eugene. Live and love life!

Not a surprise that they tickle asholes
I LOVE YOU SO MUCH OMG, SUCH AN INSPIRATION.I hope some day I can come out to my mom, I wish I could have done it when my dad was still here but well, I hope he's okay with it up there
And I always had a crush on him. But I still love you~~~
penny plays draws and more
Eugene u are noy alone I have a strict family and I still am and support us the lgbtq+ community
I'm SO proud of Eugene! But i'm a little confused...I thought he was openly gay already? Maybe not tho...maybe I misunderstood for some reason.
So much bravery, said fucking no one. Who gives a fuck if u like dick or pussy u degenerate American fucks

Besutiful video. So proud to see you becoming your true self. No matter how old you get, living in secret is no fun. As someone who suffers from depression, I don't like to use the word "happy" to describe my state of being. One word that I prefer to use is "content". For years, I used the word "happy" to mask my feelings of depression, and it only made things worse knowing that no one else knew, but me. But the word "content" makes me picture myself giving me a hug (sometimes my mum giving me a hug, cause I love that feeling too). A second word I prefer to use is "satisfied". Sometimes, I ask myself "am I satisfied with what I have accomplished so far?" and I always want my answer to be yes. But I'm not going to spend my life chasing one word, when I have two better descriptors already. I may reach some point of true happiness, but it's okay if that's not today, it's okay if that's not tomorrow. It's even okay if I have to wait until I'm on my deathbed. But for now, I am content and satisfied in my life, and that's what matters. So, Eugene (even though you probs won't see this), instead of asking yourself "am I happy?", try asking yourself "am I satisfied/content with what I have accomplished?"
Why am i over here having a proud mom moment lol
I always knew
The answer to your video title...for views and attention
You have de big gay
❤Beautiful I love your work even more❤
The Fat Beaner
I understand dude, youre coming out as gay, just like the name of your channel says, you "try" REALLY hard for people to like you. And youre coming out as gay because you want people to empathize(?) more with you, because you want to be a special little snowflake. You want to be a part of the LGBT community because no other group wants you in with them. Next time, try to love yourself, because lying to yourself is not self love. Btw, not even the LGBT community wants you, you piece of shit of a human being.
this made me so happy i cried. eugene, i love you so so much and support everything 110%
I respect him as a person just don’t believe in what he practices That’s all
Nigga you ain’t gay
There are the people that love and the people that hate Be a person who loves
Why isn't the actual video on trending???😂
The Master Maestro
I love the rainbow pride in Trending
I just came out to people around me.
I am profoundly appreciative that he choose black to represent love. Often white is seen as love and purity and unblemished but his choice to represent these things with the color black is very forward thinking
The end where hes kinda having a little panic attack is really sad. We are ALL so proud of you. Congratulations Eugene, for finally being you. Younger you would be so proud.
I always assumed Eugene was gay, and I loved him from the moment I watched the Try Guy videos.
Omg i can't believe that eugene is gay .....I'm so happy for him and hope that no one gives him crap about it
I hate gay people so much. Fuçkinq fâqqot
Tbh.. that’s my biggest fear as well Eugene. I can relate to just the exact same thing you’re going through. I’m bisexual, but my whole family is pretty homophobic when it comes to certain things and well, then accept others, except their family. Sometimes they go against it, but it’s a scary thing. It hurts me mentally and emotionally. I just wish for a day where they can just hear me out and actually understand, but I don’t think that’s ever going to happen. It’s scary, knowing that if I come out, everyone will disown me. The only person that supports me is my older sister, and she’s the only one that knows. I just don’t know how to be me, in such a closed up space where you get judged for things and it hurts even when you just try to hide it and all you can do is listen to others ridicule others for being themselves, who they are. You’re an inspiration Eugene, you’re incredibly amazing. You’re my motivation everyday. I don’t know what I would do without you tbh. ❤️
Me having to pause every tome to read the script XD
But everyone already knew ur a homo why u acting like it was a secret
no hate but i am the only one who isnt supried but i love him
Eugene you did such a wonderful job. I know how hard it is to fit into the Asian standard of being the perfect son or daughter. Our parents and community are so stuck in the past that accepting anything outside of what they consider to be "normal" would be unheard of. Continue being the awesome self that you are and know that we all LOVE and ACCEPT you for YOU, not your sexuality. ❤
I really hope NOBODY disowned you Eugene. You're video was beautiful! So happy that you opened up to us. Thank you. ❤
im so proud of u eugene!!! its not an easy thing 2 come out at all
Titan The savage cabbage
They were cool till they got with the times and we’re all the sudden LGBTQ+🤢🤮🏳️🌈=👎🏻 you can think of it like legos two bricks with pegs on the same side don’t fit together, two bricks with holes on the same side don’t fit but two bricks with a peg and a hole fit it’s just how the system works and it was Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve nor was it Ida and Eve it’s just not right and if you disagree with this comment I don’t care it’s my opinion and you milenials are about respecting people’s opinions(being gay or bi or whatever) then respect mine Unsubscribed
Christopher Kevin Rasmussen
Let me catch my son coming out twice
I have so much love for you and your work
He may be gay, but I’ll always have a huge crush on him
Eugene you will find the happiness that you deserve. Even if it isn’t how or when you want/think it will happen. It happens in every different ways and in all the times we least expect. And as much as we want to, we can’t control how or when it happens. That is life though, puzzle pieces of happiness forming together and some don’t fit right so we push them aside, but they will come back and fit together. You are lucky to have a strong support system right now and if those people disown you, fall back on your loyal friends. If they truly love and care about you, they’ll come back. If they don’t, you don’t need them.
P.S. You are my favorite and I don’t care if you are gay because it doesn’t matter. When ever you are feeling sad just remember... WE WILL GIVE YOU ALL THE CRANES!!!
Thank you Eugene for making me feel less alone. Your video really hit home. Especially during pride when I’m supposed to be out but I’m still in the closet. You’re amazing.
The ending got me. I love this with my whole soul❤️
Eugene is everything, gay or not lol
Prince Min Yoongi
I feel so proud of Eugene for doing this!💙💚💜💛❤
by tonight james charles is gonna be in eugene’s dms 💀😭
lmao no james charles likes straight boys
Also as a Korean gay transgender man, it took me awhile to open myself up and obviously I fit Eugene well since being in a culture filled with conservative backgrounds and just not really open minded are just really make me feel less about me which I just feel like I had to be out last year since I been in the closet for too long
try guys react to eugene's coming out video?
proud of you bro... gotta be your true self...
Barack Obama doesn't care about black people.
Thank you for making this video explaining your masterpiece. Personally as someone that is straight I don't always understand the struggles of the lgbtq community. Thank you for allowing me so see into the life and I'm sorry that you ever had to deal with the fear of those close to you not accepting you.
i loved how dan got on trending but im pissed at youtube that eugene didn't
It's good to have a role model that shows he is human and vulnerable too
Monica Old Elk-East
Eugene, EVERYONE DESERVES HAPPINESS, including you. Thank you for sharing this beautiful video. I am straight but I wear black, in support for all people, despite their differences. Differences in people, no matter what it is, is the one element that makes everyone gorgeous!
Absolutely my favourite video of 2019!!
Eugene, Thank you! Im. A fan of Try Guys
Youre beautiful and so is what you created
Eugene: Do you guys think this is the most expensive coming out video ever? Taylor Swift: hold my wig
I can't wait to see them on tour in a week!
The Ultimate Nerd
My favorite TRY GUY
No one fucking cares that you are gay ( it’s all right if you are )
Whether you end up reading this or not, I just want to tell you that I'm so incredibly proud of you. The production quality is amazing, you can see how hard you and all of those who helped put this together worked on this. Your mind is so beautiful. You deserve nothing but the best in this world - do NOT let anyone tell you anything otherwise. I hope you find your happiness and I hope you live your life to the fullest. You are truly inspiring and you're an incredible role model. Thank you so much for all of this. 💕
Didnt we all already know??
Wait a secound........there were ppl that thought he was straight? I kid but like im I'm such a flamer the smoke alarms go off when I go into a room and my parents haven't done the math yet
I actually started crying at 9:09 because this is what happened to me when I came out.
Why are all the hot guys gay....
You sure love attention.
Im not trying to be funny but are u the male in the relationship or female like are u more feminine?
Your community loves you and thinks you are THE MOST KICKASS ARTIST IN ALL OF GAYDOM! Also, you fucking Capricorn workaholic perfectionist, your coming out video is fucking perfect. ❤🧡💛💚💙💜
Was I the only one that like knew Eugene was gay?? Like the whole time I was like “he’s 100% gay”
I'm really proud of Eugene!! I'm happy to have great lgbtq+ representation!! The video was amazing and beautiful!
We love you Eugene ❤️🌈❤️
"Why I'm coming out gay" 🎉For views 🎉
Did any of what he said in this 30 minute video get through you I wonder?🤗
Whilst not gay, I came out to my mother as bisexual last year. I can't tell my stepdad. My dad came out to me and then I came out to him. It was weird. I'm so happy that I got to hear Eugene's thoughts and process on his video.
I knew it
HOLY CRAP THIS IS SOOO SURPRISING!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?? JUST ONE! JUST ONE OF THEM IS GAY!! OMG!! I THOUGHT THEY WERE ALL GAY THIS WHOLE TIME!!!
I hate gay peoples
Correction: it’s actually people. There are no ‘s’ in people since it’s already plural and also, get the heck out of this video if you’re homophobic, please and thank you.
It's me Boulder
Eugene I know you may not see this but the amount of people and fans that love and support you always outweighs the hate all we ask is break the walls down be you and be happy we don't want you perfect or pretending we only want you to be the real you and in doing that and saying screw what everyone else thinks you will truly be happy and that is all that anyone who loves you will want for you
even tho i may not like some gay people. I still love Eugene and even tho you may not be the happiest person bc your race or being gay your still an amazing person Eugene and in my opinioni dont think you have to be better just bc your an asian and your gay you dont always have to be good at every thing or at leat in my opinion bc your not human if your bad at something but ik that may not be the same for every one but your still an amazing person and alot of people still love you even tho your gay
Pooroo The great
The short answer is views, it’s just views buddy.
I thought the yellow scene was him torn between a relationship with a woman he had forced himself to be in (based on first coming out as bi) and then a relationship with a man.
Zahimi Cecilia Cervantes Padilla
i was just going the whole time yassss gaga while sobbing and then crying and yeah P.S. some things he said hit deep like omg i felt that oof
????? We already knew he was gay.
Thank you for posting this video out Eugene. You truly are an inspiration to millions of people around the world, including me. Congratulations on coming forward and for being such a role model for just everyone, LQBTQ+ and straights like myself.
