Thousands of ‘coming-out’ videos have been uploaded to YouTube since the video sharing platform launched back in 2005 and they have helped so many LGBTQ+ individuals accept who they are.
We’ve seen the likes of Hannah Hart and Connor Franta open up about their sexuality online and they’ve both recently been awarded for their services to the LGBTQ+ community; but now another vlogger has opened up about their sexuality on YouTube and it’s not in the way we’re used to seeing.
Noodlerella, aka Connie Glynn, uploaded an ‘anti-coming-out’ video to her channel on Friday after people had raised questions about her sexuality. The very pink beauty and fashion YouTuber admits she has always been very open about her bisexuality (or pansexuality, as she prefers to call it) on all of her social media platforms, so she’d never even considered filming a ‘coming-out’ video.
As far as Connie is concerned she “doesn’t remember a time when (she) wasn’t ‘out'”and that her family and friends completely understand that sexuality is “a spectrum” and that it would be weird if she ever sat them down and came out as bisexual.
After the video was uploaded, Connie took to Twitter to thank everyone who had been so supportive in the comment section and expressed how she was “so overwhelmed and so pleased to hear it’s helped some of you”. However, not everyone was so positive about the YouTuber’s video and some of Noodlerella’s subscribers had even began unfollowing Connie after officially stating that she is bisexual.
The YouTube community is known for being accepting and open minded, so a reaction like this is definitely something that needs to be addressed – which is exactly what Connie has done on Twitter.
We are extremely proud of Connie for uploading such an honest video that will no doubt help so many others. As always, let us know what you think in the comments and make sure watch our latest episode of SLAY or NAY for all of this weeks YouTube news.
