We Are Gay UK

YouTuber Daniel Howell comes out as gay

The YouTuber Daniel Howell has come out for Pride month.

In a video which he titled, “Basically I’m Gay” YouTuber, Daniel Howell, has come out to his 6.5 million followers. Speaking in the 45-minute video, Howell said, “We live in a heteronormative world… what this means is that most people are presumed to be straight so, if you’re not, at some point you have to come out.

“So yep, I’m here, I’m queer and don’t worry, I’m still filled with existential fear.”

The celeb, who has over 6 million subscribers on YouTuber and has had over 650 million views, apparently came out to his family via email a month earlier, he said, “I literally just sent them an email saying: ‘Hello gang. I’ve been meaning to talk to you all for a while, something quite important that should be disclosed at some point,


“‘I thought I would around Christmas, then Mum’s birthday, then last Easter Sunday etc but every time I meant to, I either felt like I would ruin the mood on the day or I just felt awkward and didn’t want to.


“‘So I decided to just email you all instead which is really inappropriate and just weird, but that somehow seems appropriate for me and at least I’ll just finally say it. Basically I’m gay,”

His video has been watched almost 4 million times since it was uploaded!
