YouTube Star Connor Franta Comes Out as Gay (Video)

Connor Franta, the YouTube star with a following of over 3.6 million subscribers, has come out as gay in an emotional video posted on his channel.

“I’m just going to be really honest,” the 22-year-old sensation said in the video. “2014 is truly the year that I have accepted who I am and become happy with that person. So today I want to talk to you guys about that and be open and honest, and tell you that I’m gay.”

Connor says that he dated and kissed girls in high school, but always was left “feeling nothing.”

“It was terrifying to me to have to think that I was something I knew nothing about,” he said. “So I immediately pushed it away and tried not to think about it.”
