Joey Graceffa has come out as gay in his new music video, and it’s nothing short of a fairy tale.
On May 16, the YouTube star released the video for “Don’t Wait," which flashes between reality and a magical world. The video features goblins, a witch and, of course, a prince who turns out to be Graceffa’s love interest. At the end, the two share a happily-ever-after kiss in the woods.
After the video went live, Graceffa's fans and other YouTubers took to Twitter to share their love and support.
Graceffa also tweeted his feelings about the video, saying it was "really really special" to him.
The positive response for "Don't Wait" comes right before the release of Graceffa's memoir, In Real Life: My Journey to a Pixelated World, which comes out May 19. By sharing his story, the YouTuber hopes to help others.
"I really just hope that it will be able to help some of you guys out there going through similar struggles that I went through and do some good in the world."
