First and foremost, we do not know if an anonymous source in a magazine is Dan. It is just a rumour and should not be seen as fact.
I can’t 100% recall what was written since I just skimmed through it, but it was something in the style of;
”I am a youtuber and me and my partner have been together for five years. I have not chosen to address my sexuality online since I don’t find it essential for my subscribers to know. The only thing making me reconsider my decision of not coming out is because I know that I could be a role model for many. But I would never ever pretend to like girl/have a girlfriend just for the sake of it”.
Those are kind of my words, but that was what the person said /kind of/ :)
