On the past month I have made a video addressing an issue I had with a friend regarding gender, which spiked the interest of quite a few of you. At the end of it I managed to come out, in the most casual way I could imagine. LGBTQIA and gender identity topics are on top of my list of things I can't know enough about, and in case you missed it... I'm kinda part of it?!
COMING OUT & SOCIAL MEDIA
Selfies and the responses I got from followers were enough to spike the thought of coming out to the public aka the rest of you.
Then YouTube dropped the bomb; LGBTQIA+ content and entire channels blocked off, and I suddenly thought how odd it was. Why would I have to publicaly announce who I am when I already get asked about my preferred pronouns? - And I discarded it again. Pushed it all aside, hoped it would just resolve itself, and that was just as stupid as YouTubes current algorythm.
If you want people to know about you, you have to tell them. There is no way around it. Luckily I just kind of added it on to the serious(-ish) talk video, as it fit the topic, because I still don't feel like it has enough relevance for me to make a separate video about it.
Change & Growing
I have started a new music project this month and I am looking forward to all the great new things my agency has in store for me as well. There is so much I haven't done and seen yet, and since I made this video I felt more than just liberated.
I don't know my parents reaction to it yet, and most of my friends probably already knew without me saying too much about it.
I can't really give any advice on coming out or finding yourself, for all I know it's just doing what you want to do and everything else will naturally follow.
Until next time,
