Let me tell you a queer little story about a boy named Dan.
Follow me online to see the rest of my tale as it unfolds in real time:
And subscribe to my channel! in-vid.net/u-danisnotonfire (lol)
Content warning: this video contains far too much strong language and discussions of general sexuality, discriminatory language, bullying and an attempt on my own life. Otherwise totally appropriate for education, instilling good values in young children and my grandma who I will expect a disappointed text from.
Special thanks to in-vid.net/u-AmazingPhil for production assistance.

Disclaimer - This video is just a starting point for me, what I felt was the bare minimum (ha) required for me to get this out there so I can move forward with my life, a mix of explanation, justification and opinion. It scratched the surface of several things I could have gone into more detail about, but the purpose of this was to be ..reasonably concise and above all entertaining. In the future, in the right places, I will surely talk much more about everything touched on in this video and more. It’s also likely that something will get misunderstood or misrepresented, perhaps from the way I phrased things or people assuming my thoughts on things that I didn’t specify. Also my story is just the truth of what happened to me and what I thought at certain points of time in my environment, good and bad - of course not my opinions today. So JUST to be clear my opinion on general sexual and gender identities are that everyone is valid and deserves equal rights and the freedom to exist. The only thing I don’t tolerate is intolerance. Cheers to an inevitable bright future, either because people become nice and the old people die or the sun explodes first lmao.

I cant even describe how much I identify with dan in this video. I'm not somebody who is a huge fan of their stuff. I think I will be watching more of his and Phil's videos. So articulate is this video that it's almost philosophical (pun intended.)

댄!!!저는 한국 팬이에요🇰🇷. 한국에는 아직 팬이 많이 없지만, 점점 번역이 달린 영상이 늘고 있어요! 저는 자존감과 우울증과 관련된 문제로 힘든 시간을 보내고 있었는데 당신의 영상을 발견하고 힘을 내게 되었어요. 제가 겪고 있는 문제가 저 스스로든 다른 사람들에게든 비난받아야 할 것이 아니라는 것을 깨달았어요. 댄 정말 고마워요. 전 영원히 당신의 팬이에요. 그리고 이렇게 용기를 내 주어서 감사해요. 많은 사람들이 당신의 영상을 보고 비난받을까봐 두려워 했던 것들이 서로 존중하고 이해하고 감싸주어야 했던 것임을 알고 용기를 낼 수 있을 거예요!

I honestly could say so much right now, this video has helped me come to terms with my own identity and struggles so much. I won’t write a full paragraph cause I’ll probably start crying but I’m sending so much love and respect your way dan. You are an inspiration (as cliche as that sounds but I don’t even care) Thankyou so much for everything that you do

Thank you, Dan. I don't know what to say but to thank you for having the courage to share this part of yourself with us. Be sure that you are helping lots of formless blobs out there that are only looking for someone to relate to. I never thought I'd find someone who feels exactly as I do, and, honestly, it makes me feel less alone in this terrifying world. I'm so proud of you and hope you are doing okay. You don't owe us anything, but you did owe yourself to live your truth, because there is nothing more filling than expressing who you truly are. I'm glad you've decided to do it.
