|Popular YouTuber Benton Sorensen.|
When his teacher set his college class an assignment to produce a project based on ‘inspiration’, he looked close to home and chose himself to be the subject of his piece.
Despite being open and honest about his transition on his YouTube channel and various other social media outputs his class mates knew nothing about his past, making his assignment was an incredibly brave move as it meant coming out as transgender to a room full of people he hardly knew.
Whenever someone comes out as trans or gay or anything it’s an incredibly brave and risky thing to do. To watch this young man go through that process is truly inspirational and emotional. Some people might think that doing a project about yourself when the subject is ‘inspiration’ is self-serving and vain, but in this case Benton is right on the mark.
This video is inspirational, Benton is inspirational. And so are all of you out there who have taken that brave step in coming out as the person you really are. If ever you’re feeling down, if you feel that you’re nothing special remember that you’ve done something truly incredible. You are all brave and amazing and you are all an inspiration.
