In a video on his eponymous YouTube channel, Weluvche revealed that he was voted most likely to be famous by his fellow students in high school, possibly because of his outgoing nature. He used to make Instagram skits and went live on the video streaming app Periscope when he was still a school student and had gained decent popularity during his final two years in school. Social media was a safe place for him to be the way he wanted to as he was struggling with his sexuality. However, he was briefly upset about it after certain videos he posted online disappointed people close to him shortly after he completed school. He had less than one hundred thousand followers on Instagram when he began uploading videos on his YouTube channel in January 2018.
On YouTube, he started with pranks, challenge videos and vlogs, but soon focused on storytime videos. He has often talked about his sexuality openly and has spoken in support of LGBTQ issues, which has helped him steadily gather fans on his various social media profiles in the last few years. He has also branched into music and has released songs such as “Weluvthat”, “Cut Up Den” and “I GET CRAZY Remix”.
After watching a few coming out videos on YouTube, Weluvche opened up about his own story in a video titled “MY COMING OUT STORY! (GETS EMOTIONAL!)”, posted on September 25, 2018. Coming from a “typical southern Black Baptist family” originally from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, he grew up hearing “Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve”. Even though it was not preached in his family to hate gays, it was still like an unspoken word. While he grew up knowing that he would have a girlfriend or wife someday, he found boys “cute” in a non-sexual way and the attraction only increased as he grew older. However, he never had to come out officially, because he was “forced out”, thanks to social media. He was often “a little too good” while portraying female characters in his early skit videos, and acted totally different online than he would in real life.
His school friends who watched his videos often speculated that he was gay, but he maintained otherwise and even had a physical relationship with a girl back in the sixth grade. Finally, shortly after graduating from school, he posted a video of him twerking that prompted his coming out. Nevertheless, the real trying moment came when his mother found out about the video the next morning and grilled him about it. According to him, she was probably more upset that she learnt about it from others rather than him, adding that coming out to people one cares about is harder. His mother, enraged, mentioned reporting to his grandmother, who he was more afraid of disappointing, but they never had a conversation about it and he moved out of the house a few days later to join college. He mentioned that it would be so much easier to be straight if it were a choice and ended the video encouraging his audience to be confident about coming out as it would help them be themselves. In a Q&A video, he mentioned that he identifies as a gay male and is not considering transitioning
Weluvche was born on August 1, 1999 in Atlanta, Georgia, United States. His mother is originally from Alabama. In a YouTube video, he described his neighborhood as typical “ghetto suburbs” where “someone might get shot every other week” or get robbed, adding that his house has been broken into. He also mentioned that he “is a little shallow” and does judge people based on their looks, even though he is trying to break out from it and is aware that “some of the ugliest people might be the nicest people in the world”. He attended a high school with mostly white students, but he mentioned in a video that he was expelled from the same school twice.
