YouTube stars come out together in emotional video

Joe Williams May 5, 2016

Gay couple Hunter Herring and Tyler Matl decided to come out together in the inspirational clip.

The Mississippi based YouTube stars – who have been in a relationship – said they felt it was time to be honest about their relationship with fans.

Herring has over 100,000 followers on Instagram, with Matl garnering over 60,000 followers on Twitter.

The boys recently posted a video to their newly created joint account, in which they open up about their love for each other.

During the video – which has amassed over 20,000 views – the boys discuss their decision to talk about their relationship.

They also tell viewers to love themselves for who they are and not to allow judgement form others to dishearten them.

Since uploading the video three weeks ago, the couple have added a series of new videos about their relationship – from fun challenges to discussions regarding the difficulties of coming out.

They join an increasing number of YouTube stars who have chosen to come out to their fans directly using the channel.

YouTube singer Sam Tsui recently opened up about his sexuality – as he revealed he was about to get married.

The singer has been uploading music videos and covers since 2008, growing a following and a string of viral hits.

But the star, whose biggest hits have over 30 million views, had chosen to not speak about his sexuality before.

However, the singer finally opened up in a video last month, as he revealed to fans that he was about to tie the knot to a fellow singer.

Last year, vlogger Ingrid Nilsen came out as gay in a video, saying “I am not going to apologise for who I am anymore.”

Nilsen, who often publishes beauty videos, shared the video titled ‘Something I Want You To Know Coming Out’.
