Touching several aspects of how his religion, Jehovah's Witness, had impacted his life since his young age, he focused on how the faith he followed hindered him from revealing his sexuality.
The consequences of even me making this video will likely result in my father never speaking to me again.
Said the filmmaker talking about the strict homophobic belief the religion possesses.
Further elaborating on Jehovah's Witness's impact on him growing up, he opened up about his sexual identity during the later part of the video.
I am pansexual. If you don't know what pansexuality is, essentially, you are attracted to all genders. And that's me.
I probably would have realized this about myself a lot younger if the Jehovah's witnesses weren't so restrictive about sexuality.
Chris's Wife Supports Him Coming Out
Amidst his coming out video Stuckamnn's wife, Sam Liz welcomed his honesty of being a pansexual.
Further, his wife is also a demi-pan and was more than excited to learn her husband's sexuality.
In Chris's words,
When I first told my wife about this, she was welcoming. She is demi-pan, and so she was actually very excited. And, if anything, this has made our relationship even better and more open.
Fear of losing his family due to his confession held him from being honest about his sexuality for all these years.
But with his wife's support, he proudly carries his identity.
