Basically I'm Gay

  • Let me tell you a queer little story about a boy named Dan.
    Follow me online to see the rest of my tale as it unfolds in real time:
    And subscribe to my channel! (lol)
    Content warning: this video contains far too much strong language and discussions of general sexuality, discriminatory language, bullying and an attempt on my own life. Otherwise totally appropriate for education, instilling good values in young children and my grandma who I will expect a disappointed text from.
    Special thanks to for production assistance.

    Disclaimer - This video is just a starting point for me, what I felt was the bare minimum (ha) required for me to get this out there so I can move forward with my life, a mix of explanation, justification and opinion. It scratched the surface of several things I could have gone into more detail about, but the purpose of this was to be ..reasonably concise and above all entertaining. In the future, in the right places, I will surely talk much more about everything touched on in this video and more. It’s also likely that something will get misunderstood or misrepresented, perhaps from the way I phrased things or people assuming my thoughts on things that I didn’t specify. Also my story is just the truth of what happened to me and what I thought at certain points of time in my environment, good and bad - of course not my opinions today. So JUST to be clear my opinion on general sexual and gender identities are that everyone is valid and deserves equal rights and the freedom to exist. The only thing I don’t tolerate is intolerance. Cheers to an inevitable bright future, either because people become nice and the old people die or the sun explodes first lmao.

    You said that there’s always hope, but I don’t know if that’s true. I don’t want to live. I feel horrible all the time. My mind is always conflicted. You said time changes everything, but even if that’s true it will take me a long time of suffering before I might feel happy again. I don’t have anything to live for. You said one person can make all the difference, but even if someone will eventually love me romantically I won’t be able to love myself. I can’t do it. I don’t want to survive and struggle for a long time before I will finally have something or someone I live for. You’ll probably never see this, but thank you Dan and Phil for distracting me when I felt horrible. I will go to London on holiday around April or May somewhere so I might be able to meet you and Phil, if I’m still alive by then.

      Joe Cipriano saying he sounds like a hypocrite very intensely implies he is one. And if you really did not want to start an argument, why reply to me?

      Did you watch the the video? He specifically asked people not to say that, as it undermines his entire point. If you respect him, you should respect his requests.

    As a teacher I am horrified and disgusted that people who are literally employed to protect you let you go through this... As educators and care providers we need to do more as I can’t even say this doesn’t happen anymore. We need to do so much better as a whole system than we are currently doing.
