YouTube star Brandon Rogers is no different. After he started his YouTube channel in 2006, he didn’t see any real traction for 10 years. Then suddenly, it blew up. 

As of April 5th 2019, he has amassed 5 million subscribers and over 760,000,000 total views. With so much popularity, it’s no question that fans also want the inside scoop on his personal life, like is he married? 

Brandon Rogers is single and openly gay.

Brandon came out publicly at the beginning of his career and since then, has been a huge advocate for the LGBTQ+ community on YouTube. He came out publicly when he was a guest on the Drinkin' Bros podcast. 

As far as being a gay role model, he wants to make sure that he’s being a YouTuber for everyone and not just the LGBT community.

"I don’t feel like there are enough queer comedians who reach mainstream audiences. I don’t want to be another one who panders within the inside jokes of the LGBT community," he told Out Front. "It’s easy to forget that the rest of the world shares an almost entirely different vocabulary than us queers. “YASS” is still the “LMFAO” to the baby-boomers six years ago."

When it comes to his audience, he feels that being gay is just another characteristic he has rather than the embodiment of his channel. 

“I just don’t think it matters that much, given the kind of work I do," he added. "I’m not a politician or a teacher. I play s--theads for a living, ones far more twisted than a simple gay." 

Brandon is focused on his career right now, not marriage.
