Today I met YouTube celeb Elle Mills for the first time when her coming out video popped up on the internet, and boi am I glad I did. In four minutes and forty-four seconds she managed to warm up my heart and weave a rainbow of hope around it. Mills is most popular for “If Stranger Things Were a Romantic Comedy” and “If Lizzie McGuire Were a Thriller” among other genre-bending edits, but she’s also amassed an enormous following for her lifestyle vlog called ElleOfTheMills. I guess a lot of people ask her if she’s gay and so she decided to answer that question, but for herself. It’s wonderful.
Welcome to the family, Elle Mills! Thank you for making us cry for good reasons today!
