I created this music video as my personal way of coming out as a proud gay man who has many unheard, specific stories to tell. I withheld because of fear and shame shaped by my background but I promise to give my full truth in the rest of my life’s work.Eugene’s Twitter Feed

Such a powerful video, that made me cry while watching. Thank you for sharing and thank you for your bravery! Happy Pride, Everyone!
