YouTuber Dan Howell Comes Out as Gay (Video)

Dan Howell has come out as gay.

The 28-year-old YouTuber and BBC presenter shared his truth with his 6.4 million subscribers in a video posted on Thursday (June 13).

In the 45-minute video, titled “Basically I’m Gay,” Dan also reveals that he and fellow YouTuber and BBC presenter Phil Lester once dated.

“Queer people exist,” Dan says. “Choosing not to accept them is not an option.”

“To anyone watching this that isn’t out, it’s OK,” he continues. “You’re OK. You were born this way. It’s right. And anyone that has a problem with it is wrong.”

“Based on your circumstance you might not feel ready to tell people yet, or that it’s safe, and that’s fine too,” Dan Howell adds. “Just know that living your truth with pride is the way to be happy. You are valid. It gets so much better. And the future is clear. It’s pretty queer.”
