Ethan Peters Gay
Peters who is originally from Texas started his YouTube channel in 2017. Peters garnered over 519,000 followers on Instagram and 138,000 subscribers on YouTube. In his second-ever video, Peters opened up about being kicked out of school for being gay.
After Peters came out, he said received a ton of support from his friends and fellow students at school, and clarifies in the video that he wasn’t exactly kicked out – but it was heavily implied that the administration wanted him gone.
“They brought up the rule book about biblical morals and statements.. they pulled that up and showed me the rule I’d broken, and I was like ‘Okay, I’m gonna be expelled. Is this okay?’ So, basically they’re asking us to borderline leave and they’re about to implement a rule that we need to leave.”
“I want it to be known, I’m not bragging on myself, I don’t curse in school,” Peters added. “I don’t wear make-up in school. I don’t get in fights in school. I’m a good kid. I get good grades. My teachers liked me… That’s how I know this wasn’t a situation of he actually is doing bad stuff online, this is a situation of where ‘I’m targeting you.’”

Addiction is a disease. I had to pull Ethan aside in recent weeks and have talks with him about his usage. Everyone close to him was scared. I just wish I fucking tried harder I fucking wish I yelled at him more I wish I didn’t enable a single pill he popped.
