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.

I’ve watched this 45 MINUTE VIDEO like 8 times when I’m feeling low, it’s so nice relating to someone that I’ve looked up to for years. Seeing Dan be okay after so much trauma helps me see that maybe I will be okay in the future as well... anyway Thanks Dan for making me feel better I love you so much

Hey Dan, thank you alot for this video! Also im honestly pretty shocked that there are still people that deem being *insert anything that a human can be* as "unnatural". Isnt the fact that there is a human that is whatever they deem to be unnatural pretty much proving that it is natural ? *thinking* Anyways, great video that helped me a lot in hoperfully someday breaking out of my specific shackles.

i noticed that you have teared up a little during some parts of the video. i genuinely hope that you have recovered from all your hardships in your life & i am glad that you are a little more comfortable in your own skin.

As long as you are happy, that is good enough for me, I know, cliche, but I don’t know how else to word it. This is coming from a proud pansexual who’s flexible with pronouns despite being biologically female.

Mental health awareness. And emo style the the only thing i actually like about emo culture, if not too bad, it cant be that bad, the hair.

Great video, with humor no less and it dresses all kind of issues why humans arent always great. Words arent enough to discribe it. The right opinion has a video full of praises nd analyting it for this video if you want positive earnest attention in another video, and see yoursel star in a youtube documentary.
