    You guys are doing so much to better the world and spread awareness about problems in society. A huge thank you to all of you (especially Eugene) for this because a big portion of my friends are LGBTQ+ and the Trevor project volunteers do so much, and it often goes unnoticed with everything else going on in the world.

    I myself is an almost 20 yearold, bisexual girl with social anxiety, i have had a lot of ups and downs, still have them once in a while, but i love to hear People’s stories and i am always here to listen, because i know how it feels to feel alone and left out..
    This is probably the cheesiest comment to write, but i don’t really care πŸ˜…

    All of you out there who are going through something, nomatter what it is, you are amazing, you are beautiful, you are badasses, you are meant to be here on Earth for a reason, and life might seem to suck right now, and i’m not gonna sit here and tell you that everything Will get better.. Because i wouldn’t be able to tell you that, but everybody goes through shit, and some people goes through stuff longer than others.. But nomatter what you’re going through, push through, fight back, you’re stronger than you Think!

    Make life what you want it to be instead of ending it …

    Everybody has dreams, follow them, strive to fullfill that goal of yours, even if it is as small as getting up in the morning and going outside, or learning how to draw/Play an instrument, go to your Dream concert, or travelling the World for that matter, just keep on having goals to accomplish, and be proud of yourself whenever you accomplish the smallest things, because you are worth it!

    Give yourself small goals to reach everyday so you feel more at peace with what you’ve done, no goal, no task, no Dream is ever too small or stupid, you are great, you are fantastic, you deserve the best, and nomatter who you are, I . Am . Proud . Of . You.

    Take care of yourselves ^^

  8. Natalie Kendel says:

    Wow… although it was shrouded in jokes (as usual when it comes to Eugene), he shared some very real things there – about feeling inadequate and using his LGBTQ identity as a way to feel special or unique. Thank you for sharing and for your vulnerability, Eugene. That was really brave of you to say. I hope your honesty isnt always treated as a joke, but that you feel seen and heard.

    • Victoria Meredith says:

      Natalie Kendel beautifully said! I was thinking the same thing… this was a side of him I haven’t seen and it was so different and I think it was very healthy for him to have this experience!

    • Steez Deezy says:

      Humor is often used as a defense mechanism. He definitely revealed more than what he perhaps intentionally or unintentionally meant to. Regardless a, very brave, open and honest of him to make this video for the lgbtq community.

  9. Sofia segura says:

    I think im ace but most think im too young to know does anyone have any advice?
    Edit: thank you to evryone it means a lot

    • BFab BNerdy BAnxious says:

      People who say you’re too young are defaulting you to straight because it’s heteronormative and comfortable for them. If you’re β€œtoo young” to be able to know or understand your sexuality, shouldn’t we be defaulting all children to ace until they develop sexual preferences? That’s an entirely separate conversation, though.

      You identify with whatever word describes your Self. That doesn’t have to be the same in two years, or five, or ten. But the thing about identity is, you’re the only person who gets to decide it.

    • Taylor Herbertson says:

      When i was around 17 i started identifying as ace but then bc of subtle comments by friends and just general wishful thinking, i dropped it. And now, at 20, im way too scared to use that label again. I say i dont like sex, but i cannot bring myself to say im ace. I hate the full word to…… So no, you arent too young, but also i just wanted to share my story a bit. Its a part of me i have buried so deep down…..

    • Susie ? says:

      if you are confident and sure of yourself and are in a safe environment to do so and I recommend coming out. Depending on how young you are (ie if you’re prepubescent where everyone is essentially asexual since reproductive hormones aren’t being produced yet) I would say screw em. if you are sure in yourself and your identity who cares what other people think

    • ღ Your Bias ღ says:

      Me too tbh. I’m still a teen and my mom always said I’d be more interested when I’m older and it’s kinda true, I am more interested but I always had crushes on boys and stuff so I just said I was heterosexual. But I never understood why people kept talking about sexual stuff bc I never felt the urge. Whenever I had crushes I wanted to become their friend and be close to them, I never really thought abt romance and sex even though all the people my age did. I couldn’t understand it and I feel so ungrateful bc my mom is bi and my dad is…inappropriate always talking abt sex and they always say that thy want to create an open environment for us to be able to talk about sex and our desires. But it always made me uncomfortable, how they talk about sex all the time and they always thought I was weird for not wanting to be that open. Ik many people wish that their parents were as open minded as mine are and I’m thankful that they are but they just can’t seem to understand why I don’t feel comfortable always talking about sex during every conversation. I wondered if I was ace and I still don’t know since I have become more curious and interested sexually. Sorry if this is too personal but do ace people still have the urge to masturbate? I’m only curious abt sex bc everyone talks about it. Ik that my body isn’t really that interested or desires it I’m just curious about how it feels. If you take pleasure in it can you still be ace? I don’t have sexual desires but I still feel pleasure from it. I’ve always been hesitant to open up abt this bc 1. I always thought I was straight and 2. If my parents find out they’d make a huge deal about it and I’m not depressed or suicidal or anything, so I never felt justified enough to call these organizations just bc I’m lonely and want to talk. I’m just unsure rn. What’s the diff between romantic and sexual? Can you be romantically interested without being sexually interested?? What’s the diff between dating and being friends if it’s not sexual but romantic? If im willing to date anyone but not have a sexual relationship what does that make me? I just feel weird bc it’s like everyone is interested in sex, even lgbt so I feel like I don’t fit anywhere…and now these days being able to like whoever you like is being more accepted but what if you don’t like anyone like that?

  12. Dizzy says:

    This opened my straight eyes to the community. I was supportive but didn’t realize how DIFFICULT it is for so many. I can relate by being hated as a person of color. Growing up with racism was a challenge and made it more difficult on my depression and mental health in general. This is amazing, what you guys are doing.

  15. Amanda Peter says:

    This is so amazing. Thanks Eugene. I’m Tanzanian and I think I’m bi. Living here in Africa; Tanzania, its actually breaking the law to be in a LGBTQ relationship. 35 years to life in jail if you get caught. I believe that I am bi but I can never say it out loud or explore my sexuality completely. I can never tell anyone, my family doesn’t know and I always end up holding my feelings and just hurt inside. I admire America for the freedom it provides and I wish I was born there.

    (I might delete this comment so I won’t get caught but hopefully someone will see it)

  17. Amy Louise says:

    I’m a qualified Rogerian psychotherapist. You’d think that all therapists would have the kind of calm and selfless demeanour that Joie has, but unfortunately that’s not so. I was so struck by her warm, empathic, patient and peaceful presence. Counsellors like her make a huge difference in the lives of young people. I’m not sure she’ll ever see this, but I’d love her to know that as a peer, I really admire her working methods and am thankful that she is out there helping others find themselves.

  18. BraylonGaming says:

    I have a bisexual friend who was on the verge of suicide. I had to talk them out of it almost every day and it was so hard to not start crying along side her, and one time I did. I felt so bad and I just wanted her to be happy. I convinced her to tell her parents and now they are helping her through this journey.

    • Kari Duran says:

      Heather Peterson hi I know this is a tough time and I’m sorry to hear that, but just know you and you’re friends are doing everything you can just by being there with her. You did good by getting her help and even if they might be upset with you guys, no amount of anger is worth losing a friend, I had a similar experience in school and I know that it’s terrifying and I never knew what to say or do or even what lines I was allowed to cross but if you would like to go with her you can ask. There is no harm in that especially if you feel it’s important for you to offer some support!
      I wish you the best and I hope it goes well with your friend.
