Makeups are always considered as women's pride, but men who find amusement in cosmetics as much as the women are not that common.
However, in today's context, some men are unhesitant to wear makeup, and some have even turned it into a thriving business, making a profit from it. Likewise, American makeup artist Manny Gutierrez popularly known as Manny MUA is one of those men.
He played with makeup from his childhood after watching his mom do her makeup. Eventually, he turned his passion into a real business and began his YouTube channel in 2014, showcasing his artistic talent to the world.

Coming Out As Gay
James always knew that he was different from all the other boys at a young age. When he was a child, he liked playing with girls more than with boys.
During his junior high, he was attracted to boys, but the mere thought of liking boys terrified him. He prayed every night to stop his liking to boys because he knew Mormon church was not for gays.
Then, at the age of 16, Manny started using MySpace, and one guy started chatting with him. With the passing time, Manny got more attracted to the guy and checked his profile; it was mentioned that he was bisexual. That was how he got into a term with bisexual.

Eventually, Manny started accepting him for what he was and for the first time he kissed a boy in his college, which was an excellent experience for him.
Now, he proudly accepts himself as gay.
