Connor Joel Franta was born in Wisconsin, on September 12, 1992 and shortly after his birth, his family moved to La Crescent, Minnesota, where he grew up. Over the past few years, Connor has made himself an internet icon through the making of YouTube videos. In August of 2010 Connor uploaded his first video to his YouTube channel "ConnorFranta" out of his interest in the concept and also boredom. Little did he know his channel would only grow from there. He quickly started to gain viewers and subscribers, eventually securing a partnership with YouTube. Making videos has not only become his career, but his passion. With over 4 million subscribers, he has made himself extremely well-known on the internet. Out of the many great things that have come from his YouTube career, two major ones are the movie O2L Forever (2015), a film based off of the YouTube collaboration channel in which he was a member of, and also for his New York Times best selling memoir, A Work in Progress (2015).
Connor has released two music compilations, the first being Crown and the second being Common Culture.
Connor ran cross country and was on a swim team when he was in high school.
He is of Polish, Czech, German, English, Irish, Swiss-German, and Danish descent. The surname Franta is Czech.
Eventually is not okay. Why tomorrow when there is today?
You don't have to be amazing to love doing something. If you enjoy it, that's all that should matter.
It has taken me a long time to accept who I am and be happy with that person. I regret not doing it sooner. Regret is ignoring a path you should have taken. Don't entertain it. Don't hesitate. I'm gay. I'm living in tune with my best self. And that's what I wish for you: to start living today, not tomorrow.
