Using the power of the web to inspire others, Troye Sivan came out to his millions of YouTube subscribers on Wednesday (August 7).
The “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” star began admitting, “This is probably the most nervous Ive ever been in my entire life, but Im going to deal with it.”
Having told his parents that he was gay three years ago to the day, the 18-year-old Aussie shared, “It feels kind of weird to have to announce it like this on the internet, but I feel like a lot of you guys are like real genuine friends of mine.”
Stepping up for similarly-situated young people, Troye said, “This is not something that I”m ashamed of and it”s not something that anyone should have to be ashamed of, so why not share it with all of you guys.”
