Joey Graceffa and Daniel Christopher told Shane Dawson how they first met, on Shane’s recent podcast.

Joey also revealed that he used to hang out at gay clubs before he came out, but stopped after being recognized.

“When I was still in the closet, I would go to gay bars and gay clubs and stuff. But at that point, I was small enough that people didn’t really know who I was. Until I started getting recognized a lot more. I can’t come here anymore because I am getting photographed. This is not helping my cover.”
