There must be something in the YouTube water at the moment because more so than ever, YouTubers are using their platforms to express their sexualities and spread the LGBTQA+ love into their communities. Following on from Gabriella Lindley’s recent coming out, we can now congratulate Alexis G. Zall on not only her 18th birthday, but also reaching her one million subscriber milestone and coming out as gay at the same time!
From her rising career as an actress and now smashing her way through YouTube achievements, Alexis is making a huge name for herself in 2016 with her impactful and ridiculously relatable videos. In fact, we’ve been keeping our beady little eyes on her for quite a while as we mentioned her as a YouTuber to watch in 2016 – and weren’t we just spot on!?
So imagine this; it’s your 18th birthday, and you’ve just hit 1,000,000 subscribers on YouTube… what do you do? You share with your fanbase on Twitter that your sexuality is as straight as your eyeliner which, 99% of the time, is totally and utterly the opposite of straight, right? Alexis’ tweet immediately went viral, with it racking up over 21k tweets at the time of writing this article, so we’d say that her coming out is pretty much out into the world right now.
Alexis, who’s known for hanging out with other YouTubers that have explored their sexuality such as Ben J Pierce and Shane Dawson, feels like she’s sharing her honest and true self with her fans now, as can be seen in her “18 Tips For 18 Years” video recently posted on her channel. She opens up to her viewers about the last 12 months of her life; “This year of my life, just as i am nearing the end of it, I can say without a doubt, I feel the most comfortable with myself as a human being than I have ever felt”. You go Alexis – you do you exactly however you want it to be done and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
