Today, in a video posted to his channel, Shane Dawson came out as bisexual.

“I’m making this video because I feel like it can help a lot of people,” Dawson said in his video. “I feel like a lot of you might be confused and scared and [are] not talking about it. I’m here for you.”

Coming out -- whether it is as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or allied -- is a deeply personal journey for every individual. Whether it's for the first time ever or the first time today, the experience of coming out and living openly covers the full spectrum of human emotion -- from fear to euphoria.  

HRC congratulates Dawson on taking this brave step forward.

Watch the video below in which Dawson discusses his powerful journey to this moment. For more on how to live openly and authentically as a lesbian, gay, bisexual, trangender or allied, visit HRC’s Coming Out Center.
