This is the moment. Worriedly fiddling with his phone, a young YouTuber sets up a secret camera and plucks up the courage he needs for a conversation which will change his life.
“Finally got the strength to come out to my mom,” says the popular gay American video maker who goes by the name Mallow610.
“I decided to post this so that I could share my experience with you,” he explains. “She [his mum] didn’t know she was being recorded. I put the camera in a tissue box on top of the refrigerator.
“Also, I know I am on my phone the whole time. My phone is my comfort blanket. I literally cannot put it down when I’m anxious.”
We love this video and are not surprised it’s getting a lot of attention worldwide since it was uploaded last week. It’s already up to over 550,000 views.
