Ryan Beatty isn't holding anything back with his coming out announcement!

The 20-year-old YouTube star-turned-pop singer took to social media on Tuesday to reveal that he's gay -- actually, his exact words were that he is, "Proud to be a raging homosexual."

"It's taken 20 years of suffocating in the closet for me to become comfortable enough to say it, but now I can finally breathe," he wrote. "I did it!"

"I'm so happy I'm gay," Beatty added over on Twitter.

"I'm so grateful to have friends and family that support me and just want me to be happy. That's unconditional love," he tweeted. "Thank you to anyone who's reached out to me with the supportive words. I'm so happy"

If you're thinking, who? It's OK: He's a two-time Teen Choice Awards nominee, released an EP, Because of You, and toured with Cody Simpson. Here's a recent YouTube cover, singing Lukas Graham's "7 Years."
