WE’RE GAY | Our Coming Out Stories | Probably This


Okay, here it is! Our coming out stories. We SWEAR this is our last *long* video for a while. 🙂

We’re not professionals, but if you want to talk about beginning to come out, email us at hey@probablythis.com. 🙂



  1. Hi guys! I'm a new subscriber here. This was nice. Making a long story short, I knew I was different, but (like both of you), I couldn't put it into words. I never heard the word gay till I was in high school; but when I did hear it, I knew exactly what it was. I struggled with my sexuality for years, was abused several times, and didn't really accept who I was till I was in my 40s. Both of my parents went to their graves not knowing anything. I'm in my 50s now, and my siblings have only known for a couple of years. They accept me, though we never talk about it, and they know I'm still struggling to have a relationship (which may or may not ever happen). In the meantime, life has to go on. Prayers are always appreciated if you're believers. Thanks for sharing your stories. Looking forward to seeing more.

  2. Great video, guys!! It was kind of refreshing to hear about your drama-free coming out. Mine was similar, no tears or fanfare! Even so, it's a great thing to be comfortable in our own skin…to feel accepted and part of society. Growing up gay definitely means feeling "different" for a whole bunch of years before you finally find out you're part of a much bigger (and awesome) group of people. That's changing more and more – and I'm sure young people feel more comfortable coming out now vs. 10, 20, 30 plus years ago! Thanks for this nice video!

  3. Thank you for posting this video! It's things like this that help teens like me feel like its a normal and okay thing. I'm actually planning on coming out to my dad today and I'm the most nervous I've ever been in my entire life. I came out to my mom on national coming out day and she started crying because it was so "shocking." That really flustered me. So now I'm in a place where I know in my head that a being gay is okay, but I don't know if I'm there in my heart yet. Sorry for the verbal diarrhea but I just want to normalize the process of coming out so I can just start loving myself more. That got really heavy really fast lol. I'll be back after I come out to my dad I guess, so wish me luck lol.

  4. Great video boys. I realised I was gay when I was fourteen, (2001-2002), but I came out when I was 24. It was New Year's Day 2012, and I sat my mother down and told her.

  5. I am 53 and I came out to my parents when I was 16. think about the time frame and back in the day and my dad was a marine and mom first words what did I do wrong and so do not trade places with any one………

  6. ❤️❤️ you guys are great! Thanks for telling your stories and helping others like us come out. My coming out story was not so good. My mom died when I was young and when I came out to my father he refused to believe he had a gay son…Cuban/Catholic, not surprising. He died 22 years later never having spoken to me. On his deathbed, my sister asked if he wanted to see me and he refused. The important thing is that you are true to yourself and find that support network. I did in my husband of 20 years and my life is amazing. No matter how difficult it may seem, we are all meant to live our best life and it has a funny way of working out. ❤️❤️
