Other prominent YouTubers who have come out on their channels recently include Troye Sivan, Connor Franta, Ingrid Nelson, and Joey Graceffa. What sets Zall apart is that while many YouTubers make coming out the central point of video announcements, Zall included the info in her yearly birthday video as No. 8.

“I’m about to get gay,” she announces. “It is totally OK to be a girl who likes girls or a boy who likes boys. And me, personally, I am a girl who likes girls.” 

Moving on from her sexuality, Zall shares her love for nail polish and about how she can be both pretty and smart, without discrediting either. It’s a pretty typical clip by Zall, who usually speaks to her 1 million subscribers about trying new candy and testing as-seen-on-TV products. Her sexuality is just another factoid about her to share with her budding audience. (In fact, she hit 1 million subscribers the same day she posted her coming-out video.)
