Popular YouTube creator and beauty guru Manny Gutierrez — better known to the world as Manny MUA — is using his platform to help six LGBTQ+ people live their most authentic lives

In a newly-announced Snapchat Discover series, aptly named Coming Out, Manny acts as a guide and mentor to a handful of young queer people from all over the country who are struggling to come out of the closet and live in their truth to the people closest to them in their lives.

"Coming out for me wasn't super easy, so if I can help in any way, shape or form — help other people come out — that would be amazing," the 30-year-old makeup mogul and now reality start told People Magazine when asked about his involvement in the series, which is executive produced by beloved actress and The Miseducation of Cameron Post star Chloë Grace Moretz and will feature resources from The Trevor Project. "The cool thing about getting to be able to do this with Snapchat [is] their audience is so predominantly young, and they'll be able to see people like themselves coming out and having great experiences with it." 

He continued: "I wish 15 years ago that I could have had people that I could see and look up to in my coming out experience."

Coming Out premieres this Sunday, July 25 on Snapchat Discover, with new episodes streaming every week until August 29!
