Julian posted his coming out story on youtube about 6 months ago. He grew up in Sacramento, California, and then moved to southern Oregon in his teens. He came out to his friends and family when he was 16. Julian told his female cousin first, who reacted positively and then his twin brother who did not take it as well at first. Now, his twin understands the importance of Julian being true to himself. After coming out to everyone in his life, Julian realizes that not everyone will accept him, but he will never let that compromise his being honest and proud of who he is. Julian is currently a Communications major in college and plans on becoming a novelist.
