  1. I went through the same thing as you did when I was in high school here in the USofA hundreds of years ago. On this coming July 4th, I will celebrate my 43rd anniversary of my coming out. Today I'm as happy as a clam at high tide, but I still regret those lost teenage years. All the best to you.

  2. I'll never understand where "gay people are weak" comes from. You need a titanium soul to survive that many years of abuse. Sending support across the ocean. 🤗

  3. Thank you for sharing your story – it's so important for people to talk about their struggles and their good times in equal measure, and I think that in sharing the tale of how you got to where you are today, you are putting out such good in the world. Hopefully this video gets seen by those who need to hear your words of reassurance and compassion – while I personally never had to come out, the scars and trauma of the bullying you experienced are ones which I can unfortunately empathise all too well with, and even in hearing that others have been there too AND IT ENDS would have been a major, major lifeline for me at the time. <3

  4. Dearest James. My heart breaks for the bullying you endured. I am so happy you have come through it and are using your voice to help others. Sean and you are a wonderful example of what love looks like. If narrow-minded asshats can't see it….f*ck 'em! Love from your 57 year old SoyBoy Grandma in the U.S. 🌈👨‍❤️‍👨

  5. hugs I'm sorry you had to go through that as a teenager. Being a teen is hard enough as it is. We're all so awkward and just trying to figure life out, it's awful that you had to go through being bullied on top of that. Within the past few years I've realized I'm bi (heteromantic bisexual to be exact) but I haven't really told anyone. I'm not sure my family would understand, and that doesn't bother me. I've never felt the need to "come out", but I'm 30. I guess I just feel like I'm an independent adult and I don't need to explain to other people who I have sex with. But I don't have to live in fear, or pretend to be something I'm not.

    I look at the world in a different way than most. I really internalize that saying "You don't know what others are going through". I look at those around me and wonder what they're struggling with. I try to be kind always, even when people are getting on my nerves because you just don't know what they're facing in their mind. I wish more people understood that and treated others with the same respect they'd like to receive in return.

    I know this is a serious topic but all those dishes on top of your cupboards (press? presses?) is triggering my OCD, lol.

  6. Shame on your school for allowing that bullying. I'm so glad you came out of that to be able to live as you deserve – with love, acceptance and pride in who you are.

  7. Lots of love for you bud, I am so proud of the person you are and the brilliant and wonderful things you do for everyone else. You only deserve happiness and praise. You are stronger than you will ever know ❤️

  8. Dude! Crying, dagnabit. Seriously, YOU ROCK! Thank you for sharing. It's so very important if this video can help even one person understand they matter, wow! But also, if even one person can be brought to a place of understanding and acceptance, we'll be one step closer to the day when no one has to fear or endure such horrific experiences.

  9. Thank you for sharing your story.

    As I listened to your words, I had this desire to give you a hug because I know how terrible bullying can be. I’m glad that you made it through that experience and are able to offer a bit of support to those who are still struggling.

    Thank you again

  10. What you went through is unimaginable for a lot of people, and I am sorry that you had such a difficult time back then. But, look at you now, my sweet. You are strong and caring and beautiful. I am wishing you a happy life, the best life, and a very long life with love from Oklahoma, us.

  11. James I wish I could give you a hug. I’m sorry that you had to go through that…..I’m sorry that anyone has to go through that. I hope that watching this video it gives someone the courage to talk to someone else. Keeping things inside doesn’t help. If you need help try to talk to a friend, family member, anyone who will listen.

  12. Such a powerful and important video, everyone show hear and listen to your story, its horrible you went through so much as a younger person but turned into someone amazing!

  13. Oh my god!! I love this so much!!! I HATE that you ever had to be worried … I think I wouldn’t love you as much if you were straight 😂!!!! You are so fab, so funny… and even more amazing in person!! Wonderful video!!!! ❤️❤️❤️
