There's a new name making headlines at Us WeeklyPeople and TIME: Ingrid Nilsen. The 26-year-oldYouTube beauty guru -- she has over 3 million subscribers -- is reaching a wider audience thanks to a touching viral video in which she comes out as gay.

"Okay, I'm doing this. I guess I am just going to get right to it: there's something that I want you to know. And that something is I'm gay! It feels so good to say that," Ingrid says in the 19-minute video before tearing up.

"I'm shaking right now because this moment is real and it's here. And I've been waiting for this a long time," she adds.
