    Love this video!!! I want to volunteer. I wish I would have had this when I was younger. Being a gay man and living with HIV, from being raped, it’s hard and I would like to be there for the youth of our community and just let them know someone does care!

    Friends is TREVOR international? As in free for abroad callers as well?
    I'm lucky that I don't personally need it right now but I'm in the UK and I'm 99% sure it is also needed other than the US, especially in war torn and oppressive countries so if it is I'd love to let people know about it.

  • Åsa S

    I think there should be posters up in every school about the Trevor Project, all teachers should be aware of it and tell their students, all lgbtq kids should know that they exist, and that they could get help and someone to talk to!

    Eventually in the near future ppl will come to accept the LGBTQ+ community and hopefully understand we all deserve equality, acceptance and respect. As bruce lee says "Do not pray for a easy life, but pray for the stength to endure a difficult one. Be resilient and confront your troubles head on, talk to people you trust or contact or visit a helpline website, and most importantly be optimistic. Never regret a day in your life, good days gives you happiness and moments to cherish while bad days gives you experience in order for you to find your resolution. I hope this motivates and aspires you to look at things on the brighter side often and strive to become the best possible version of yourself!ಥ⌣ಥ

    i think eugene would benefit a lot from some some therapy to sort out his personal childhood traumas. he is a caring and deeply feeling person deep down but i think he has a hard time trusting and being open/vulnerable due to his traumas growing up.

    My very best friend is gay, and the girl that I have a thing for is trans female. Both of these people are very important people that I care about greatly, and I know that growing up neither of them had an easy time. Knowing two strong, intelligent, absolutely beautiful people like them, it hurts to know that a couple of years back, they struggled so much with themselves and with society being so close-minded, cruel and unaccepting. However, it gives me a peace of mind to see that there are organizations out there like The Trevor Project dedicated to helping the LGBTQ community in any way they can. This may help other members of the community get through what two very important people in my life had to endure. They were strong enough to get through it on their own, but after hearing the statistics, it's clear not everyone can be as lucky.

    Y'all are so great for sharing this information for people who desperately need it. My son recently came out to me and seeing him struggle to tell me broke my heart. He was so scared to tell me but I've always known and have always encouraged him to be himself. It's heartbreaking that so many people don't have that kind of support from family and friends. 🏳️‍🌈

    I knew from a young age that I was a bit different than some, and it has been a hard process working through it, despite having a supportive family. I think for a lot of the community, especially when you are young, its all so confusing and hard, and for pretty well everyone I know in the community, I think a lot of us come to some point where it ways on you pretty heavy.
    Hell, as a adult, I felt... very... off. I am not sure if depressed is the right word, but I definitely felt out of it and wrong and sad. And it took talking to some one to learn what was going on and come to accept another aspect of myself.
    So, here I was, sort of trying not to cry here watching this. Just sort of thinking the help these volunteers can do for people, often in worse places than even myself.

    As a demisexual and bisexual woman this means a lot to me. I called the Trevor Project hotline when I was 14 years old. That was 7 years ago I might not be here without them. I remember calling because several months before my friend Trevor committed suicide several months before and the fact that the project has his name made me feel like I was meant to call.

      +Hannah S He has stated that he's LGBT, like for instance in the video "Should The Try Guys Get Plastic Surgery?" he says "Being both LGBT and Korean is super complex, there is way to enirely wrap up exactly how many factors contribute to my history with insecurity". He has also made a video called "The Eight Types Of Gay Guys I've Dated" about 5 years ago.

  • strawberrychocolette

    I wish I knew about something like this when I was realized I’m bisexual in middle school. The things I heard people saying back then, even though not to me but around me about lesbians/bisexual girls made me feel really gross about myself and dislike that part about myself for being abnormal. As a middle schooler, my view of the world was so limited, it would have meant so much to have an adult tell me that who I am is okay rather than only hearing the mean whispers of my classmates.
    Please make resources like this more readily available for kids younger than high school as well!

    A few months ago i started doing self harm. At that time, I had discovered that I like females. I live in a country where if you have a same sex relationship, you'd be imprisoned. My parents are Christian and they are a little homophobic. Even my sister said that "If you were lgbt, I would probably hate you forever." Around a month and a half of me doing self harm, a few people noticed the scars, including my cousin and my best friend. I told my cousin that it was nothing and tried to keep my arm away from her sight. Not long after that, it was all debunked by my red cross club leader. She had done it all before and managed to make me feel so loved that I managed to tell my sister about it and stopped for a week. Then, It started again an I started contemplating suicide. But, I somehow stopped because of some talk I had with my online friend. Later, I found out the same cousin that I tried to hide from was also doing self harm because of her current household situation. Honestly, I feel a bit better. Even though my depression isn't going anywhere, I still try to laugh. I try to support said cousin and she's also helping me. I can't really talk to anyone about it, but I can always write down what I felt.

    Business Seeker 5 days ago

    I'm just going to say right now, I'm a conservative. This video is very powerful and inspiring, but they start putting shade on the Trump Administration which really offended me and most likely offended other Trump Supporters. They got those storylines from potentially and most likely politically biased media sources. Please try to cover both sides. Thanks.
    (This comment is not intended to bring offense to anyone involved in the LGBT community)

    • juliawasthere
      juliawasthere 2 days ago

      Business Seeker It’s not like they were trying to target Trump and everyone among that side, because that’s not what they were doing in the first place. They were pointing out examples from what’s in our lives today, such as the trans military ban and erasing of transgender youth, which both were under Trump’s word. If you’re saying that they could’ve used more examples from other sides, then yes, they could’ve but, at the time of this video, both topics were both going around and popular in discussion in the country which was why they talked about them more. I hope this kind of clears some things up lol and have a good day.

    I know that I am bi, I have known for a long time. My sister and mum are bi so surely that should make me feel comfortable with coming out but I doesn’t. I don’t wanna be bi because it runs in my family because they are, I wanna be who I am because it’s me not from anyone else’s influence. It’s been a weight in my shoulders and I don’t think I will be able to comfortable come out until I move away from them

I've seen all the others at least once, but didn't know this one existed until I happened to look at the full list of Try Guys videos. Is it just a fluke, or some shady TheXvid shit?
