About RJ Aguiar & Will Shepherd

As they say themselves, R.J. Aguiar and Will Shepherd are “a gay couple interested in demonstrating just how normal gay life can be.” For years they have vlogged on their website notadamandsteve.com, and now they each have popular YouTube channels where they take challenges, answer fan questions, and continue to vlog their everyday lives. R.J. takes to his channel to talk about serious topics that affect the gay and bisexual communities in videos like “Bi People Have Issues,” and interjects some comic relief into others like “Dick Pic Etiquette.” On Will’s channel, the two documented the wedding they celebrated in Spring 2016 in a series of popular videos. It might be normal to them, but to their hundreds of thousands of subscribers it’s both fun and insightful.
