YouTube star Joey Graceffa has come out as gay to his nearly 5 million subscribers in a magical new music video.
Graceffa celebrated his 24th birthday Sunday (18 May) with the release of Don’t Wait, which features goblins, a witch and a prince charming – with whom Graceffa shares an epic happily-ever-after kiss.
‘I really just hope that it will be able to help some of you guys out there going through similar struggles I went through and do some good in the world,’ he said in a postscript to the video.
Graceffa has received a wave of support from fans and fellow YouTube sensations, including Tyler Oakley, Alfie Deyes and Connor Franta.
‘After 8 years of this topic being the most discussed thing on my YouTube channel. To FINALLY be open felt incredible,’ Graceffa tweeted.
Don’t Wait is currently number 72 on the US iTunes chart.
