I think that going to the Met Gala without a stylist is like going to see a Broadway show that doesn’t have a stage manager…….. you are guaranteed a failure of an evening.

This makes me so emotional for some reason? Wanting to represent what America means the queer community, POC community, those of Asian Decent, etc, and in a time of need members of those communities come together to help you behind the scenes? Especially a member of the Queer Community coming together to help you when you're so down? It really just makes me choked up and emotional for reason I don't even know how to articulate.

Eugene, you only HAD six days this time! (Tho' granted, 60 people would help....) Srsly, I think you need to turn this into an annual event. Prep for a Met Gala invite, and do a photo shoot of your look even if your invitation gets waylaid. (You KILLED in that tux and your eye makeup was INSPIRED, Anna should be honored to invite you back!)

YOU DID IT!!!! I agree that your look was completely valid--it was all meant to be. The photos will last forever and you looked amazing in them!!!! And you were so right in making sure all of your details were on point so your could stand out in an amazing Dior tuxedo, just beautiful how it all came to be.

I started crying in the last part minute. I’m Chinese, but born in Brazil, and lived across the world, like him. I wasn’t close to my mom but slowly mending it. The part of using fashion scraps and own it also kind of it hard personally (finally have achieved confidence in what I wear)

I love that he got to hang out with Nikkie and Jackie! The fact that you still slayed and made this beautiful video to give us all of your inspiration after the disappointment of not quite having the look you'd hoped for (while still stunning) is just...thank you. Thank you for showing us that even someone that has been infront of cameras for years can feel out of place or less than, when there is no way in the world you are. It's a reminder that none of us are either and that we need to fight those awful voices telling us otherwise. You have been an inspiration for years now and I'm so proud to see you and the ladies get the chance to stand up at the met gala and show the world that you are all here to stay and continue your amazing work.

*What is the Gospel?* The true gospel is the good news that God saves sinners. Man is by nature sinful and separated from God with no hope of remedying that situation. But God, by His power, provided the means of man’s redemption in the death, burial, and resurrection of the Savior, Jesus Christ. Ephesians 2:8-9 For it is by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of GOD, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. Romans 10:9 9 because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. JESUS CHRIST can come anytime! Just Believe ❤️ Love you and GOD BLESS

Hey Eugene! I recently told my mom I’m grayromantic/aroflux/aceflux, and personally you’re an artistic inspiration to me and personally has helped me make a lot of the probably most unheard of art experiments I do in my free time that end up being my favorites. Keep being the absolute figure of divinity you are✨

I was so stoked to see that you made it to the Gala! It would be a crime if you don't get invited again. I remember you from quidditch days, we never played each other, but my old roommates would always get so excited seeing you pop up here and there over the years. You are killing it!

Also, I think that Eugine looked amazing. I think the combination of the suit with his makeup and nails ect really spoke about what people assume of you VS what and who you are and who you want people to see. I think he still looked amazing ever if this wasn’t his look he wanted

The way he shows how anxyous thoughts creep into his mind is so sad and so accurate. I've loved Eugene since wayyy before he came out as gay and queer but now that he lets us see that part of him I'm a much bigger fan of his work and mostly of the lovely, caring and understanding person he is.

First I desperately want to see the dream made real. Second they better invite you again and do it properly. This whole video is probably one of the most heart hitting, beautiful, inspirational, come together videos you’ve ever produced. Mostly because of your amazing narration skills of your own experience, your kindness, and the kindness of those who came together for you.

We honestly thought your outfit was a whole discussion on the abuse of Asian Americans over the pandemic while the community has put on a good face. That's why we thought you went with a classic tux and epic make up and style.

It may not be THE dream outfit but it was a dream outfit, suit looked good and worked well with your nake up and heels :)
