James Charles Reflects on Coming Out as Gay to His Parents

Not everyone is lucky when they come out to their parents. Many people have shared how difficult it is to come out as gay and share that they have a partner or boyfriend.

Fortunately, James Charles has been lucky in this aspect. He came out as gay when he was 12 years old, and since then, his parents have supported him.

Moreover, they had the YouTuber’s back when he wanted to chase his love and passion for makeup. 

James Charles’s supportive parents

Charles has often talked about his coming out story. He first mentioned it during The Ellen DeGeneres Show. He was a guest on the show when he became the first male CoverGirl.

He shared that his parents fully supported him being gay and his career choice as well. They assured him that they would be there for him no matter what.

He said, “They were like, ‘Oh, you know, we love you no matter what. Like if you’re trans, you can tell us.”

Charles does not identify as trans but is happy that his parents loved him for who he was and for their support.

He went into detail about his coming out story on his YouTube channel. On a video uploaded in May 2018 titled ‘I GOT CAUGHT… MY COMING OUT STORY (chit chat get ready with me),’ Charles shared how his parents found out he was gay.

He was 12 years old and was exploring the internet. He realized that he was interested in boys and not girls. 

During that time, he used to be active on Tumblr. From there, he discovered Omegle, a site where you could chat and socialize with strangers.

Soon, Charles got addicted to Omegle and used to be on it almost daily. He learned that people talked explicitly on the platform, and Charles was interested in it. 

But unfortunately, one day, he was caught enjoying himself on the Omegle by his father. Charles’ mother and brother used to sleep quite early, but his father stayed up until late watching the news or sports.

One day, while doing an essay for History, Charles decided to watch an explicit video on Omegle, and soon after, his father caught him.

His father said nothing except to turn off the computer and sleep. Charles was embarrassed and scared, so he cried himself to sleep.

He dreaded what would happen the following day, but nothing was different. His parents did not react to the incident that occurred the previous night, making Charles nervous and freaked out.

He knew they would talk to him soon but did not know when. The MUA returned home from school the same day and waited downstairs for his parents.

After they came back, they said that they needed to talk to him. Then Charles realized he had forgotten to clear his internet history and knew his father would want to check it.

As expected, his father went to his computer and checked the history. He opened Omegle and saw Charles’ profile which mentioned the topic of interest as “gay, bi, men, boys.”

This way, Charles unintentionally came out to his parents. He was not ready to come out of the closet and reveal that he was gay.

He was embarrassed, and as a result, he cried his eyes out. He was scared of his parents’ reaction, especially that of his father, since he was a Christian. 

His parents were disappointed, but not because Charles was gay. But because of what he was doing on the internet.

The YouTuber had a long talk with his parents, who explained the dangers of the internet. They reminded him that he was only 12 years old and there were a lot of predators on the internet.

Since then, Charles has been careful about joining websites like Omegle and exposing himself to similar platforms on the internet. 

James Charles’ boyfriend and partner

When it comes to relationship and dating history, Charles is one of the most controversial people out there. Initially, before even talking about a boyfriend or partner, the YouTuber got into trouble for saying he was not fully gay.

He posted a YouTube video of YouTuber Jeff Witteck doing his makeup on April 12, 2019. The two talked about relationships and sexuality, among other things, and at one point mentioned the Kinsey Scale.

Charles said, “Zero being like, completely straight, and six being like, completely gay. I truly believe the amount of people that are a flat-out zero, or flat-out six, is very, very small” He then noted that he’d rate himself at 5.5 on the homosexual scale.

Wittek asked, “So you’re not even full gay?” To which the MUA said, “I mean, no. There have been girls in the past that I’ve thought have been really, really beautiful. There’s also been like, trans guys in the past too that I was really, really into for a moment in time.”

Charles faced a lot of backlash for this statement. According to Nylon, Charles’ remark enraged many admirers, who believed it was insulting and rejected trans-men individuals as “real” males.

Charles later issued an apology through Twitter. 

After that, many people were linked as Charles’ boyfriend or partner. However, to date, all of them have ended in a scandal.

First was Gage Gomez, who accused the YouTuber of manipulating and harassing him. In 2021, he was accused by multiple underage boys of texting him with the intention of hooking up with them.

People called him a pedophile, and Charles defended himself via a YouTube video by calling himself desperate. Since then, Charles has kept his dating life out of the limelight and has not revealed if he has a boyfriend or a partner.

As Barden is a public figure, many of her followers noticed her imperfect teeth in addition to her exceptional acting ability.

Previously, the actress would hide her teeth out of fear of being seen in public, but she now embraces her natural teeth. On July 28, 2020, Barden shared a photo of herself smiling and showing her teeth. “#challengeaccepted and I did a full teeth smile picture,” she wrote in the caption.

However, people still continue to point out her teeth. While Barden’s new film Pieces of Her was released, some Reddit users felt that her character didn’t work and discussed her teeth. One person wrote, “Jessica Barden is a very capable actress but I thought she was dreadful in this …she struggled with the accent, very stilted. Genuine question did she have false teeth in?”

How Jessica Barden overcame adult acne?

She said, “It was really embarrassing and painful. I remember when we went to Milan Fashion Week with Gucci and my skin was really bad around that time. The make-up artists were so nice, but they were presuming I was 16 or 17 instead of 25, which made me feel really self-conscious because you don’t feel like you’re a grown-up.”

Barden added, “On the whole, everybody has been so kind to me. My agents have never made a thing about it which I’m so grateful for. But there were a few times on set where I would hear people saying they’d have to do some kind of CGI on my skin, and you just feel bad.”

The actress also revealed that she had spent lots of money on skincare. She believed that her skin problem was related to her anxiety because when she was stressed, her hormones went crazy, resulting in acne.

Realizing that, she began to meditate, cut back on caffeine, and exercise daily, which helped her acne. More than that, Barden has accepted her natural beauty and feels comfortable in her skin, regardless of what others say.

The 33-year-old musician has been part of Fallon’s talk show many times. Is there any possibility that these two are sneaking out with each other? Fallon is a married man; is he cheating on his wife?

How did the rumor start?

The rumor began when the gossip queen Kyle Marisa Roth talked about it in one of her TikTok videos. In the video, she regarded gossip, as per her, the “blind item,” which she was going to reveal was so spicy that she put her fireball aside.

“Speaking of cheating, one of the members of this all-female band is sleeping with a married late-night talk show host,” she exposed, “That is Jimmy Fallon, and whoo! Alana Hiam.”

While going through the video’s comment section, some fans were stunned. One of the TikTok users commented, “Nnoooooo! I am so naïve and must live in a tiny bubble. I always thought he was so great 🥺 tell me it’s not true.”

Some users didn’t believe the news, while a few connected Fallon’s rumors with Ariana Grande. One of them commented, “there was a rumor him and Ariana were sleeping together at one point too.”

Even on Twitter, one of the fans tweeted, “The thought of Alana Haim and Jimmy Fallon is making me physically nauseous please don’t be true.”

While this rumor is circulating, one of the fans asked about Haim and Fallon in the Q&A session by deuxmoi on January 24.

The Instagram gossip page with 1.7 M followers had invited its followers by stating, “what’s the hot gossip lets discuss…,” in the session to which a fan had asked, “Alana Haim/ Jimmy Fallon???? Not real right?”

Thus, the rumor was falsified, and it eventually died with the statement of the gossip page, which must have relieved Haim and Fallon, a married man.
