Ok, so I have had a few requests for my coming out story. My Husband Bryans Coming out video was really well recieved and inspiring. I hope this story helps someone who has the same type of family I had. I found it very hard to make this video. It is much easier for me to talk about marriage equality and my family then it is to talk about myself. As a young man I tried to commit suicide twice. I want all young gay people to know that there is hope and a life after coming out.

Ok I got a lot of questions from this video so I made a coming out story part 2. here is the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eawrId...

Great video mate. I'm 38 & only had the courage to come out five years ago after my mum passed away I was always worried of disappointing her, I just stayed single all my adult life up until I was 33 as I didn't want to hurt anyone by telling lies pretending to be straight etc so I figured I'd stay single then when my mum passed I knew it was my time and I'm now happily settled with my partner of 5 years & have told my family & friends all of whom were great! Anyway thanks for your video it was great to watch All the best Sean.

Thank you
How boring
Jay and Bryan THANK YOU SO MUCH. I am gay and i always wanted a family always wanted kids. For a while after coming out to myself i thought that i never would have MY kid. But to be honest you guys showed me that just because its not Biologically your kid they still are YOUR kids. your family is inspirational and i love you guys.

Thank you for sharing this!  I know from experience that being gay is not something you choose but who you are!  I'm sure this has helped LOTS of other gay men and women who deal with parents that don't understand or being influenced by the "Extreme Right!"  As a gay man, I didn't choose to be who I am and to go through the persecution and discrimination that comes with being gay.  So glad to see attitudes have changed since back in the late 70's and 80's, although there is always room for improvement!  Thanks for being a part of educating people on what being gay really is!  We're human just like our straight counterparts and thanks for being here!!  HUGS and MUCH LOVE!!  Keep up the great work Jay and Bryan!!  :-)

You sound just like me when I was 19. Actually, I'm going back to that time when I wondered: "am I the only one who doesn't follow this 'whatever thing considered gay'?" "Am I going to be alone forever because I don't fit the stereotypes?". But well... listening to people saying we're individuals (which is how I perceive myself) is always helpful. Thanks for sharing.

Why is that if you're a feminine gay man you're not considered "normal" but if you act like a straight man you are. It's bullshit. Being a gay man and masculine is like the holy fucking grail. You're invisible to the straight world unlike the feminine men who are visibly gay and can't help it. It doesn't help that they're even shit on and judged by their own community. Normal does't exist.

After hearing Bryan's coming out story, I wanted to hear that of his husband.  The two of you have both done good jobs, and I am sure that all your subscribers and other YouTubers will benefit from hearing what y'all have to say.  This video, too, is going on my "Coming Out As Gay" YouTube Playlist.

I know how you feel. The Army has done the same for me... oddly enough it helped me come out and feel more comfortable with myself
