Viral Video Outs Gay Airman

By: Jase Peeples

The guy who posted the viral video showing a group of airmen covering Adele’s hit “Rolling in the Deep” is also a man on the verge of coming out to the world.

According to The Advocate, the airman who uploaded the video, using the name AreYouSuprised, had also been keeping a vlog on YouTube about being gay in the military, chronicling his delicate coming-out process.

Soon enough, his military colleagues started to figure out that the guy posting the singing airmen videos was the same guy posting the intimate (yet mostly faceless) vlog posts.
