Mario Dedicanovic, Kim Kardashian's makeup artist, has come out of the closet. The 37-year-old makeup artist, who is famous on social media as Makeup by Mario, got emotional when he talked about his sexual orientation following he received the Artist Achievement Award at the American Influencer Awards in LA.

After Kim Kardashian West handed the award to Dedivanovic on Tuesday evening, he delivered a powerful speech revealing his sexuality. He said how he was "living in fear." Then, Dedivanovic said that a couple of days before he told his mother:

I had spent my entire life and childhood suppressing my thoughts, suppressing my dreams, my feelings, my creativity and trying to be invisible so that no one would know how I'm feeling inside.

He went on saying,

I stand here for the first time in my life a proud 37-year-old gay man. I finally feel that bright light that I've been dreaming of my whole life is pouring from my soul around my body and it's mine.

Dedivanovic further said after he told his mother about his feelings, the latter urged him not to live in shame or fear anymore. In addition, he said lots of young boys and girls might be living in fear and pain as he did. While saying that, Dedivanovic also revealed he had thought of suicide at some point of his life.
