WATCH: YouTube star Connor Franta comes out as gay

Joseph McCormick December 9, 2014

YouTuber Connor Franta has come out as gay in an emotional video on his channel.

In the video posted yesterday, the 22-year-old addressed his 3.6 million followers, saying: “I’m just going to be really honest… 2014 is truly the year that I have accepted who I am and become happy with that person.

“Today I want to talk to you guys about that and be open and honest, and tell you that I’m gay.”

Franta joined YouTube in 2010, and often makes videos with other stars, such as Miranda Sings.

Since publishing the video, Franta tweeted to thank followers for their support.

Most fans congratulated Franta, and the hashtags #weloveyouconnor and #proudofconnor trended in the US.
