Moving from Missouri to California was one of the scariest decisions of my life. Everything was intimidating, whether it was the massive cost of living, the traffic or the overbearing presence of kale. I had no idea how or if I was going to survive, but my YouTube channel really came through. Building an audience online was the craziest plot twist of my life, and has allowed me to accomplish things I never thought possible. More importantly, it has connected me with so many humans and given visibility to others like me. My favorite messages are from Black gay youth who share how my content made them feel over the years; other gay guys from the midwest who found comfort and entertainment in me; people who were inspired to come out to their families; people who were inspired to chase their dreams. My own journey helped others in ways I didn’t even fully comprehend. Two years after relocating to LA, I was able to establish a corporation. I was genuinely working for myself, something that hadn’t been done before in my bloodline. It was exciting and it was overwhelming. There have been many ups and downs, several setbacks and a few huge fails, but it has been one of the most valuable learning experiences. Your 20s are already a disaster, so just imagine being self-employed in your 20s! The struggle and the lessons were oh so real, but life goes on and we figure it out on the way!!! 2019 marks my 10th year on YouTube, and I look forward to the future. I look forward to true stability, buying a home and continuing to be some sort of light for every young, Black gay out there watching… because if I can do it, so can they. I'm proud to team up with @wellsfargo, a company that helps empower their customers with the resources needed to take steps toward success.

So @faceappeditor can eat my ass 🥴🥴 got me looking like Elya Yelnats didn’t carry me up the mountain. Why half my eyebrows get Thanos snapped?! Why my bottom lip deflate? Is that DRIED CUM around my lips or do I develop psoriasis? I’m fckn... done 😪😔

Empowerful: when we become stronger and more confident, especially in defining our journey and striving for equal rights. I love #Pride season because it allows my community to shine bright, free of judgement and surrounded by others who accept and love us. I attended my first Pride at 21 years old and will never forget how liberated I felt, 100% secure in myself, looking around at all my LGBTQ+ brothers and sisters. I knew I wouldn’t be bullied or harassed, no matter how I danced, walked or talked. It was a celebration years in the making, and I’ve enjoyed it nearly every year since. This year, in particular, is the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, a pivotal moment in LGBTQ+ history which kicked off a long fight for our rights in the United States; and I think we will all be rejoicing a little harder this year. I’m beyond honored to team up with @WellsFargo as they recognize, celebrate and support my community this season, and all year long. They understand every obstacle we have overcome, and are committed to guiding us towards all our goals. To learn more visit wellsfargo.com/empowerful #Sponsored #Empowerful

Y’all... I’m still shaking! Is my life even real?! Honored to kick off the week with the talented cast of @GoodTrouble - the show is such an important, inclusive, diverse masterpiece and I was DYING inside telling everyone how much I love their characters and story arcs! What an unforgettable moment 😢😢😢 #GetIntoGoodTrouble Season 2 premieres TONIGHT at 8pm on @freeform!

Cotton balls and bandages are this summer’s hottest new accessories fr fr 🤫🤪 All jokes aside.... GO GET TESTED! 🗣 I know it’s scary for a lot of people, but it’s oh so necessary because no matter what your results are: YOU CAN’T TAKE THE PROPER STEPS TO PROTECT YOURSELF (and others) IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DEALING WITH!!! 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾 #KnowYourStatus #GetTested #LGBT 🏳️‍🌈

I’ve been watching horror films since I was a kid, and the explosion of diversity in the genre over the last few years has truly warmed my heart. Growing up, I swear black people stayed dying in the first 20 seconds of the movie, or having some irrelevant comedic role before randomly dying during the third act. I remember being so happy when Brandy lived in I Still Know What You Did Last Summer or when LL Cool J survived Halloween H20. Fast toward to 2019 and @octaviaspencer is not only leading a horror film as a Black woman, but she is the ANTAGONIST! The villain! The killer! This is so monumental to me : after decades of white men and women and crazy white families and white dolls doing anything and everything to everybody, a Black woman is about to come through and fuck some kids up!!!! #MAmovie is already iconic to me and I just love this entire era where Black talent are bringing more to horror than carnage and comedic relief. Octavia is going to demolish this role!!! 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾

A month ago, I had one of the greatest experiences of my life thanks to @maliburumus and I can’t wait for y’all to see everything that went down! Until then, here’s a little taste according to yours truly! Swipe, swipe, swipe and leave a comment telling me about a time where YOU had to get out of your comfort zone 😅 #maliburum

Kingsleyyy

One last drink before I head back to America 😝🤣 Thanks for a great time @maliburumus #maliburum #ad

I didn’t know any of these people a few days ago. We’re from all over the world and competed together for @maliburumus 🙌🏾 I will never forget this experience! #maliburum #ad

Kingsleyyy

AYO! Look like I’m going for a swim! Dunked on em, now I’m swinging off the rim! 🍍 @maliburumus #maliburum #ad

Whoever decided we should be team captains needs to reevaluate their life 🤪 @maliburumus doesn’t know what they’ve gotten themselves into 😈 #maliburum #ad

the most hilarious part of dating in the social media era has to be people wondering if you’re still together simply because you haven’t posted any pics 🥴🤣 so blessed and grateful to have spent another year with this one 🌹🌹🌹 here’s to the next 🥳 #HappyAnniversary 🌹🌹🌹

Kingsley? Kingslé? WILL THE REAL PRONUNCIATION PLEASE STAND UP? 🤪 Michael Buble’s @bubly #SuperBowl ad just made me #CrackASmile. I’m in good spirits and seriously considering a rebrand. Everything sounds better with an accent, amirite?! Which one do YOU like? 😋#bublyvsbublé #ad

kingsleyyy

Y’all don’t understand how much I love this guy 😄 I fckn love chipmunks in general, but Chip n Dale were my absolute favorite cartoon characters, and Chip just brings a smile to my face and nostalgia to my heart 😪☺️

#GoodTrouble, to me, means owning your voice and staying authentic, no matter what you disrupt or sacrifice in the process. Every single person that moves to LA to pursue a dream or opportunity has their own story, and that’s why I'm so genuinely hype about this show and cannot WAIT to attend the premiere and speak with the cast. The diversity and representation in the ensemble is also just… UGH! Anyway!!! Catch the @GoodTrouble Series Premiere TONIGHT at 8pm on @Freeform or stream on @Hulu!! Y’all know if I’m posting about it… it’s worth it!!!

And on the 7th day of 2019, I took my first selfie 😄 #HappyNewYear 🎉 I sincerely wish you all the best, most fulfilling days ahead... please take care of yourselves and don’t sacrifice your health for anything. Much love 💙

#pride : a high or inordinate opinion of one's own dignity, importance or merit, whether as cherished in the mind or as displayed in bearing or conduct; a becoming or dignified sense of what is due to oneself or one's position or character; self-respect; self-esteem 📸 | @caseyk.photo

I grew up with two moms, so you’d think being gay was a breeze. And it was. At home. School was still an uncomfortable disaster. I was called a fag before I even knew what the word meant, because of my voice, mannerisms, interests... wearing a belt 🙄 It’s impossible to condense into an Instagram caption how much of myself I began to hide... parts of my personality I restricted to fit in, to not be seen or noticed, to simply be left alone... and how long it took to become comfortable in my skin again. And a bitch is never going back. When I get the chance to participate in anything regarding #pride, I take it because I know somebody out there needs to see. It’s simple why our community has embraced the rainbow: it’s a miracle after a storm. 📸 | @caseyk.photo

Was last week even real? Bitch... we were on RuPaul’s Drag Race. Y’all don’t even understand... we had to keep this under wraps for MONTHS. We had to watch Season 10 knowing our asses were gonna pop up near the end, tryna act shocked at the eliminations while watching with friends 🤣🤣 Liars! Scammers!! The fakery, the dishonesty! It was like I Know What You Did Last Summer and we dumped the body 🔪🔪 I feel like we are sisters now. All of us (plus Anthony) together, hiding this big ass secret, this shared experience; and now it’s out, it’s over and it all feels like a dream. I’ll never forget being on set with you all, hyperventilating with the gays and in awe of the straights, who we were so open and game for it all (and WON!) 🏳️‍🌈 True allies, real men. This is a memory that only six of us on this planet share 😰😰 and I’m glad it was with you guys ❤️

“We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in a mutual weirdness and call it love.” - Dr. Seuss (Bitch... did Dr. Seuss really say this shit? Y’all know Google be trippin’. The same nigga that wrote Green Eggs and Ham? Really? Go off Seuss!)
