How Joey Graceffa came out as gay?
Joey Graceffa came out as gay in the unique way possible. On May 16th, 2015, he posted a video on his YouTube page. The video was titled ‘Don’t Wait,’ and it danced around fiction and reality. We are introduced to witches, goblins, and a prince.
The latter turns out to be the YouTuber’s long-lost love interest. By the end of the video, we see the two kiss in the middle of a beautiful forest.
Though surprised, fans took to twitter and other social media platforms to praise his courage. Even his colleague, Tyler Oakley, took to Twitter to congratulate him. The 28-year-old YouTube personality said that it took him a while to come out because being gay was frowned upon in his hometown.
He was born in Marlborough, a small town in Massachusetts. It has several religious fanatics who shun anything and anyone they perceived as different.
Joey Graceffa’s Boyfriend Daniel Preda and their Love Life.
The YouTube personality, Joey and Daniel, started dating a year before Joey came out. The television personality saw Daniel’s pictures on Instagram. He found himself attracted to the stranger, and decided to follow him. To the writer’s delight, Daniel followed him back.
They started talking regularly, and this eventually led to a date after they exchanged contact information. In the early stages of their relationship, they had to keep everything a secret; fly under the radar.
Joey had not come out yet at the time. He was concerned about the negative reaction he could elicit back in his hometown.
Less than a year after they started dating, Joey Graceffa officially decided to come out. He did so in the most spectacular ways, even going as far as to feature his boyfriend in the video.
