[Joey Graceffa – YES I’M GAY]

[Joseph Michael “Joey” Graceffa (born May 16, 1991):] Source:
Well, hello there everyone. So um… holy crap, this is the first thing I can think need to say. Uh…so if you guys didn’t see or I am sure most of you have, I released a music video called ‘Don’t Wait’ and the response has been literally so frigging incredible and I just feel – oh I don’t know I just feel – I feel so good and so happy. The response has been amazing. People are Tweeting, commenting, everything I just want to thank you all for your amazing support and I just feel like the luckiest boy on the world. So thank you.

So there were definitely a lot of questions and confusion about the video. So I just want to make a video just to clarify things and to just really talk and be open for one of the first time ever on my YouTube channel.

So I guess first what I want to talk about is the views, and the likes, and the interaction, and the comments, and everything, because I’m just so blown way by it of how accepting and how cool people are and I’m just thinking back to when I was a kid growing up and how, well, I might as well just say it for real obviously this has been taken away from the video, um… but I am gay.

And I did it in the music video in a way that was not officially saying it because in a way I think it is not necessary to have to say who you are, do like a video just talking about your sexuality because my life is so much more than that and I wanted to do it in a creative way that was to me and I am so happy that I got to do that but it’s also important to be proud and open with who you are and show people that it’s okay to be gay and that’s who I am and I am not going to hide that anymore.

And it’s just so crazy how many like people are onboard with this because like I was saying before just remembering back to how difficult it was for me as a kid growing up and feeling like it was wrong and I shouldn’t be this way, to millions of people watching this and giving at a thumbs up in support of what this message stands for and I think that’s incredible and something that should be taken away as how far people have come to accepting what this is and I am just so happy that I got to be a part in like a little step towards it’s being accepted.

I am just so lucky that I am in a place right now where I am – I feel comfortable and confident with who I am and I think that’s what took so long for me to finally be honest with you guys.

I didn’t want to come out and not feel prepared and ready to stand up for who I am and really take this role full force.

I wanted to make sure that I was in mindset where I felt confident in who I was and I wasn’t going to come out and not be able to be this role model for some people out there going through the same thing that I was going through. And I have gotten that question a lot, it’s like why did it take till now for you to come out to your audience and that’s my answer.

There is no specific time that anyone should have to come out.

And I personally just wasn’t ready. I needed to learn to love myself before I could expect other people to love me for that.

I just needed self acceptance first and that took me a really long time.

And I also wanted to talk about some of the comments and some of the confusion with the music video and I guess explain what some of the things meant because some people didn’t fully understand and I wanted to clarify some of the things.

First of all the blond kid obviously was me and the other kid who saves the blond kid is the boy I kiss at the end, so that’s the first thing.

Second is the witch was the mom from the beginning. I don’t think that clicked in peoples heads until it went to the part where she was in the apartment, drunk and passed out.

And thirdly, the darker version of myself represented my fear, the part of myself that didn’t accept me for who I was.

And finally standing up to that darker version of myself and saying no like, this is who I am, you’re not going to control me anymore and like vanishing it from my life because it was such, like a heavy dark burden on me and to finally say no and get rid of that felt incredible and to show it visually, I am so happy with how it turned out and to see my vision actually come and make sense to people.

But I just didn’t clarify for those who didn’t get.

[Joey Graceffa:] Source:
I have noticed a lot of people have actually decided to come out to their friends and family because of this video and – is so crazy that this video was able to do that for people.

It’s really exciting to see that that’s me that much impact on people and has pushed them and in no way it was to push all the people out of the closet because I know what it’s like in there and it’s scary.

And sometimes it’s not the right time to do it, but if you feel like it is the right time then do it if this video inspires you, but in no way if you feel like you’re unsafe or it’s not the right time or place to do it then you don’t have to. No else is making you to do anything. It’s up to you, it’s your choice.

And I think it’s so incredible that I got to come out on my own terms because for the longest time I was so afraid that I was going to be outed – or a picture was going to be taken of me holding hands with someone and I lived in a life of fear and it wasn’t fun.

And I just think it’s so amazing that the YouTube community because a lot of people, my friends, YouTubers knew about this and never took advantage of it and public – publicized it or made it public in anyway and I just want to thank everyone who let me to it on my terms and when I wanted to do it and how I wanted to do it because this video meant so much to me and its something that I have been wanting to do for really long time. So I am just really happy that it turns out this way. I – I was scared for a long time.

A lot of comments were saying this change was nothing, we will still love Joey unconditionally and that just makes me feel so happy.

And I love how supportive the comments are because there are so many people going through a similar thing trying to figure out who they are and can go to this comment section and basically 99% is all positive and people being so accepting to everything.

So if you do need some help and if you want some support and feel like you’re not getting it, the comment section down below of that music video and probably this one is just amazing. It’s full of love and it’s just so cool to see.

So many kids, this new generation coming out and we can get rid of all those old people who don’t accept it and start our new world of its being fully accepted.

And I think that’s amazing. And I am just so excited to live in this world and be one of those people to push and help to make this more acceptable.

I think the biggest thing for me that’s gotten most emotional was when I posted the video on my personal Facebook and I wasn’t out to a lot of my family members – my immediate family yes, but not my cousins, my aunts, uncles and to see them and their response to this video and being so loving and accepting just really made me super emotional because I think that was more close to me because of what it means because I grew up with these people.

And for some reason it was so hard to come out to the people that I grew up with and felt like I lived a lie with them and to share this part of my life with them and then to respond in that was amazing and I just feel really lucky.

I just feel lucky and yeah.

And the crazy thing is I was planning for the longest time that my coming out was going to actually take place in my book, I had it all planned out it was like going to be a big shocking surprise for people to read; but something changed and I decided you know what like it’s written down this is in the book like this is the first place where people are going to see it and this bad guy and I will even show you guys.

What Chapter XIV, Chapter XIV it’s literally just that; surprise! I am gay.

But I decided that it was important for me to do it in a different way and do it my Joey creative way of doing a music video and eventually talking to you guys right now about being open and being gay, um… somethings don’t always workout in the way you originally plan, but that’s okay because it all works out in the end.

And I didn’t want to seem like I was just using the book as the only way to find out that I was gay because I – that doesn’t really matters to me, but what matters to me most is that I am effecting lives and I am using my story to make a difference in the world and I want to effect as many people as possible that’s – that’s the real gold here. So I just wanted to thank you all so freaking much for all the love and support that you’ve showed me, it’s like changed my life in such a crazy way.

Okay, I think I am done rambling on.

[Joey Graceffa:] Source:
I love you all so freaking much. I will see you all tomorrow.

Check out the music video if you haven’t already. And yeah that’s it for today. I will leave you guys. I will see out tomorrow. Good day and bye.
