    An absolute beautiful, heart-touching work of art... I'm with my toddler and I couldn't help just watch and cry... I'm a mother, engaged to a wonderful man, yet he, my younger brother and my friends are the only people to know I'm bisexual... I still can't openly talk to my family about this... Even though I haven't been threw alot of what other people of the LGBTQ+ comunity... but I can relate... I love you Eugene, you and everyone who's true to their heart and own mind. xoxoxo Good work to everyone who worked on this project.

    I'm not really surprised that Eugene has now come out as gay. I've known many, many gays that tried to "soften the blow" by calling themselves bisexual for a few months or years before they finally realized, or announced, whichever, that they are, in fact, gay.
    *CONGRATS, EUGENE! LIVE YOUR **_BEST_** LIFE AND KNOW THAT YOU ARE LOVED!!!*
    This video was emotional from the beginning, but the shooting (Pulse reference?) and the bashing scene literally _pulled the tears from my eyes._ I had no control over my tears. This is the kind of raw emotion that dance is _meant_ to bring out. Hats off to the whole crew, and especially the visionary Eugene. You guys, girls and "in-betweens" were all great! I hope you know how _important_ this short dance film really is. Thank you all!
    Now I'm going to watch it a few dozen times so I can catch the subtleties the first viewing missed. ;-)

    now i don’t mean to be rude or anything...but i lowkey already knew Eugene was gay. i could hear it in the way he would talk about girls. he seemed almost unsure if he was attracted to them. but regardless, it takes an immense amount of bravery to come out in general, so to come out to the the entire world in this beautiful and absolutely breathtaking video is so magical to see. the artistry that it took to direct and choreograph this video is from someone who has been going through pain and sorrow and it shows that he truly cares about how we understand his pain and struggles and that we see that he is finally in a place of peace with himself, and plans to help his newfound community as much as he can. this is truly a magnificent and heart warming piece of art, and i hope i never forget it.
