    I actually cried at how beautifully expressive this was. There were so many emotions that Eugene portrayed, hopeful, scared, trapped, some without even saying a single word. It is truly amazing what you were able to show us, and how much feeling you put into this. Thank you. This really means so much to me. Congratulations. Please know that you are making a wonderful impact on the world by sharing your acceptance in the midst of hate. Please always know though, that although people who hate may sometimes have louder voices, they do not outnumber those who choose to love.

    I'm a 13 year old boy and I'm straight but why does supporting LGBTQ community feel's right
    Is it because I'm broken ?😕

    I've watched this three times now and each time I come away having noticed something different and with new interpretations, but each time it never fails to move me. This is a stunningly beautiful and emotionally weighty piece of art which achieves so much in such a short space of time even without clear spoken word. This is an inspiring display of talent which leaves me thinking 'I want to make something that good'. The attention to detail really makes you feel the importance of the messages the video presents and I especially love the inclusivity, the fresh takes on colour symbolism and striking cinematography. Simply outstanding work from everyone involved and massive props to Eugene for being able to be this emotionally vulnerable with his audience.

    Eugene, I absolutely love what you did with this. Your unique story telling and perspective is something I couldn't help but admire. Everything in this video was pretty powerful ( I also got really excited when all the queens showed up. Bob is bae.) and I think you did an amazing job. Thank you for taking the time to make something like this, your passion really shows!
