Troye Sivan is an Australian singer and actor who gained fame for singing on YouTube and participating in Australian talent competitions. Sivan gained global recognition as an actor when he played the younger Wolverine in the 2009 film X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The appearance helped his music career, and after releasing two successful EPs, he signed with EMI Australia.
Sivan’s first album, Blue Neighbourhood, was quite successful, but it paled in comparison with the success of his second album, Bloom. Troye’s second album reached number three in Australia and number four on the Billboard 200 chart.
This piece will look at Troye’s sexuality and love life.
Troye Sivan opens up about dealing with his sexuality: “I was terrified of it”
„Coming out as gay is one thing. And then coming out as the person you want to be is a whole other separate journey.“
Troye Sivan has spoken about his early difficulties in coming to terms with being gay in a new interview.
Speaking with Harper’s Bazaar Australia, the ‘My My My!’ singer said: “Coming out as gay is one thing. And then coming out as the person you want to be is a whole other separate journey. Growing up in a society where I didn’t want to be gay for the first 15 years of my life, I was terrified of it.
“That’s still in there and I’m personally trying to work it out. I’m enjoying this process of pushing myself, figuring out – am I into this? Am I not? There are no rules.”
Sivan had revealed to the world that he was gay on his YouTube channel in 2013, and admitted he’s often found it difficult linking his sexuality as part of his artistic identity. “I never set out to be this gay pop idol,” he stated in the interview. “I remember all these young girls coming to my shows and thinking, ‘I know they know I’m gay, so why are they coming? They must like the music — awesome.’
“And then after ‘My My My!’ and ‘Bloom’ had come out, suddenly those first few rows got younger, but at the back of the venue there were older gay guys and I was thinking, ‘This is an interesting shift.’ But it’s never been something I’ve strived for. I’m just grateful that people care.”
The artist recently starred in a spectacular music video with Charli XCX for their track ‘2099’. The clip from her new album ‘Charli’ was directed by Bradley&Pablo, and shows the pair – who previously duetted on ‘1999’, also included on the new record – driving jet skis around while showing off a variety of impressive stunts.

For every girl out there crushing on Troye Sivan, we have some bad news for you: He’s openly gay and has a boyfriend (sorry, ladies!). He’s dating a male model and their relationship is adorable.
Here’s Troye Sivan’s coming out video from back when he was most well-known as a YouTuber:
To say Troye Sivan and Jacob Bixenman are one of the cutest couples in Hollywood right now, would be a severe understatement.
With dozens of Twitter feeds, Instagram accounts and fan fiction sites dedicated to cheering on „#Tracob’s‘ happy relationship“, it’s no wonder they’re one of the most popular couples right now.
So popular in fact Sivan will be performing his newest single, „The Good Side“ on Saturday Night Live.
Though they’ve been rumored to have been dating for awhile, an appearance in a music video and their first-ever photo they posted on social media has made the relationship between the singer and the model official.
Here are 8 things we know about Troye Sivan and Jacob Bixenman’s relationship and dating history:
Troye Sivan Talks Being a Queer Icon — And Being Labeled a Bottom
When , the lead single from Troye Sivan’s hotly anticipated sophomore album, Bloom, death-dropped into my awareness this past January, I had no idea who the singer was. This, despite the fact that the Australian pop star, only 22 years old at the time, already had another album under his belt — 2015’s Blue Neighborhood — and a devoted international following from his formative years as a YouTube personality. All I knew was that the song — and its video, which stars Sivan, complete with babydoll moue and angelic whisper power-posing in the rain — made me feel like a boyband-worshipping tween again. The f*ggot vaporwave this Millennial had been waiting for had arrived — what a time to be alive and limp-wristed! Wig, etc.
But as I mainlined My, My, My and Bloom, the album’s other teaser track, it was hard to shake the worry that my intoxication with the catchy bops, tender lyrics, and boyish sexiness of Sivan himself was grounded in the homonormative ideals that insist on a safely pinkwashed version of male queerness, one that’s young, white, cis, skinny, and not too femme — all of which Sivan undoubtedly is. It’s easy to scorn thoughtless puff pieces about the mythological “Age of the Twink” and debate the discursive stranglehold of movies like within the already narrow plane of representation queer people have; it’s a little trickier to question its embodiment when the marketing campaign hits you right where you live. Sivan is, if nothing else, easy to love.
A gay icon is a straight performer who creates a queer sensibility to the delight of their queer fanbase; an icon who happens to be gay can do the same, but never without the considerably harsher intra-community scrutiny of their fellow queers. Though perhaps not yet quite an icon (though this isn’t stopping some from using the word to describe him), Sivan and this most recent album are quintessentially pop in the sense that both feel like a guilty pleasure, because they go down so very smoothly, conforming to conventional standards of appeal so well that we’re almost dismayed by how formulaic our pleasures reveal themselves be.
This was the baggage I brought with me to speak with Sivan for them., thereby committing the greatest crime one can in the name of pop music: overthinking it. But asking Sivan to answer for the cultural circumstances that have made him a star is about as useful as denying the joy I take in a song that’s transparently about the art of bottoming.
This perspective also ignores Bloom’s merits as the luscious, romantic, and deeply queer music that it is. Sivan has said himself that he wants his fans to admire not an individual song or album, but his full “sensibility.” And at this point, it’s undeniable that his is as thoughtful as it is effortless to enjoy.
Before coming out, I remember distinctly feeling like there was a delay on my life. All my friends were doing just dumb stuff that kids do, like making out with people at parties and starting to date, and just, you know, getting their first girlfriend or boyfriend. When we went on leavers (the Australian equivalent of spring break where kids just get messy) I remember feeling ashamed that I just couldn’t feel like I could take part in any of that. I remember everyone was getting hickies, and I pulled my best friend, who’s a girl, into a room and told her that I was devastated because everyone was having all these romantic and sexual experiences for the first time, and I just felt like I was sitting this one out, waiting for something. I was waiting to come out or waiting to find a community of people who were like me. I didn’t know any gay people growing up or any queer people growing up, and so I just really felt alone and kind of lost, and I just wasn’t experiencing life.
She was so sweet and gave me a hickey on my neck so I could show it off a little bit to everyone else. It made me feel a little bit better, and also made me feel depressed for myself. And that’s a really real experience, I’m sure, for a lot of queer people. You know, maybe you just wanna take part and feel like a person, and you crave all the things that everyone else craves — community and friendship and kinship and love — when you’re young and queer. It’s really hard to find those things and it really makes you feel lost.
Maybe I do feel extra joyous and extra liberated that I’ve found the things I’ve found. My parents have been married for 27 years, and that’s my model in my head. They’re more in love than ever. I look to them as a kind of example of one type of a really healthy, happy relationship, and that’s something I’ve always wanted to find for myself. Growing up, I had no idea where I could even begin to find something like that. Now, to be 23, maybe it’s a little weird to be experiencing these things for the first time, maybe it’s not. I just felt excited to finally be getting the experience of crazy, unabashed love that I’ve always wanted to know and feel. I just wanted to take a second to celebrate that and document it a little bit for myself, so I can look back on it in the future and say, “Wow, I remember exactly how that felt.”
I don’t know. I’m definitely more comfortable in music, maybe because I’ve been making music my entire life, professionally for a few years. Acting, for me, is still something that’s scary. There are a lot of unknowns. You put a lot of faith in the people working around you and the people making the movie. I really enjoy the process, and if I can watch the movie back and be proud of myself, and proud of my performance, and proud of the work I’m doing, I’d love to kind of keep going and see where it takes me. At the moment, it’s still the unknown.
I do. A big thing for me with this album is, I wanted to write music that didn’t feel like — I’m sorry — bullshit. I didn’t want to bullshit anybody. I live in this very particular, surreal world where I hang out almost exclusively with queer people. I live 10 minutes from West Hollywood, which is like one of the gayest places in the world. You know, for me, this is really real life, being able to celebrate these things, being able to talk about these things, and just being as open and honest as you want, and I didn’t want to come to this album writing for anyone but me and my friends. I wanted to make an album that I was really proud of, that felt exciting to me, and that felt honest to me, and felt like something that made sense of me. And a big part of that was exploring these themes the way I would amongst friends or whatever.
Completely reductive. Without getting into like any sort of details whatsoever, that was a song I wrote about a particular experience. I’m not branding that as myself forever. It was definitely just writing a song.
No, definitely not, that would be really, really weird. I mean, for me, this music is like the soundtrack of everything, but once it’s out, I actually stop listening to my music. I listen to it so much while I’m working on it, but the second it’s out, I lose all perspective on it and don’t know what any of it means anymore. It takes on a new life. I hope it’s on everyone’s sex playlist except for my own.

5 Times Troye Sivan Spoke Out for LGBTQ Rights
For longtime fans of Troye Sivan, they’ll remember watching his videos on YouTube that featured him doing things like showing off his amazing singing abilities and simply opening up about his life. And now Troye has made it huge in the music world, having recently released „There For You“ with Martin Garrix after already having completed his wildly successful Blue Neighbourhood Tour.
So in honor of his 22nd birthday today (June 5), we wanted to look back on some of Troye’s finest moments. Of course, his music is both electrifying and magnetic — but there’s been plenty of times that the young musician has spoken out about being LGBTQ and gotten involved with important issues involving the community. It totally makes sense that just this past April he became the youngest recipient of GLAAD’s Stephen F. Kolzak award. Check out five of our favorite Troye moments:
Back in 2013, Troye came out in a touching video blog posted to his YouTube channel. He’s been open about the challenges he has faced during his own experience, including internalized homophobia — an issue that still continues to be perpetuated throughout the gay community. Many people still continue to struggle with embracing who they are because of the stereotypes that
During an interview with radio station Total Access he said, „Along the way I’ve actually become really proud of everything that I am, including [being] gay … It sounds crazy but internalised homophobia against myself is something I’ve dealt with my whole life. And so my life mission for myself, personally, is to just smash down all of those walls and be exactly who I want to be.“
While Troye has spent time bringing to light a variety of topics, homelessness among LGBTQ youth is perhaps one of the most vital. According to a 2012 study, 40% of homeless youth identify as LGBT and family rejection is the leading cause. Troye joined Teen Vogue for a visit to the Ali Forney Center, an organization that has helped directly address the needs of LGBTQ youth. It manages and develops transitional housing, with its mission to “provide LGBTQ young people housing and a continuum of supportive services to help them thrive and prepare them for independent living.”
While at the AFC, Troye talked with three young people in the center’s youth ambassador program to learn more about their stories and how to help. They discussed even some of the nuances that come along with trying to access help, including organizational bureaucracy and the disparity between services.
Troye has worked with condom company Durex Australia for several years to help bring more awareness about HIV and AIDS for World AIDS Day. Back in 2014 he posted a Facebook post which reads, „December 1st is World AIDS Day which means today is a good day to seriously think about safe sexy times. I posted a video talking about this a few weeks ago, but i still feel like it’s worth saying again because this is so so so important: Don’t be embarrassed to learn the facts, get tested, buy condoms or just start the conversation with your friends/parents/teachers/whoever to make sure you’re safe and protected.“
And he continued to support the cause, including with another video in 2015 where he talked about myths surrounding the disease. He answered some of the most common questions and addressed misconceptions that are popular on the internet, including the question“is it easier to get AIDS if you’re gay?“ Troyes explained that sexual identity doesn’t necessarily affect the risk of contracting, it’s more so dependent on the sexual acts. The handy video is still available to watch on YouTube and has over 1.2 million views.
In ’s cover story from the February 2017 issue, Troye sat down with his good friend and actor Hari Nef to discuss queerness, music, representation, and more. One of the most poignant parts of the conversation was the two discussing having just gone to a Trump protest in Boston and how even though Troye is Australian, how the current American president has affected him. He of course spends a lot of time in the United States and has many fans in the country, so he’s very honest with the reality of living during a time where Trump is in the White House.
He said, „I think I’ve gotten to the point where I’ve accepted defeat in the fact that Donald Trump is going to be president. But it doesn’t change my opinion. I let myself grieve for a little bit, but the most comforting thought in the world to me is that LGBTQ people have always existed. To think of all of the hardships and all the regimes that LGBTQ people have survived—we are such fighters. I have faith in us as a people. I know that we can survive this.“
While there still continues to be a lack of LGBTQ representation in popular culture, Troye has made it a point to incorporate this kind of visibility into his music. Three music videos for tracks off his Wild EP („Wild,“ „Fools,“ and „Talk Me Down“) told the story of two male teens’ secret romance after something sparks between them that turned them into more than just friends. Troye’s video for “Youth” featured a variety of teen couples hanging out at a mesmerizing house party, even with Amandla Stenberg in the mix.
Meanwhile, his video for „Heaven“ featuring Betty Who went with another direction to help educate: it uses footage of historical LGBTQ movements and couples, including some clips from some of the earliest Pride Parades and protests. This was incredible especially considering the fact that he has so many young fans that he was able to introduce this meaningful history to. He wrote in the video’s description on YouTube, „we have always been here. we will always be here. this video is dedicated to all who’ve come before me and fought for our cause and those who now continue the fight. in dark and light times, let’s love forever. love, troye x“
BONUS: With Troye getting one year older, let’s take a look back at the oldest video he has on his YouTube channel: a cover of Declan Galbraith’s „Tell Me Why“ from when he was only 12 years old. Even at such a young age it was clear that Troye was going to be a star (and check out that throwback hair).

Who is Troye Sivan’s rumoured new boyfriend Lauv?
Troye Sivan is rumoured to have a new boyfriend, fellow singer Lauv, after collaborating with him for his latest song “I’m So Tired.”

“Catch me and my new bf @lauvsongs performing our new SMASH ‘i’m so tired’ on @jimmykimmellive feb 6th,” Sivan wrote.
The 23-year-old singer posted a photo of him linking arms with Lauv, who is aged 24.
30 Gay Love Songs: Men Singing About Men (Updated 2019)
Even when visibility for LGBTQ artists is at an all-time high, it can still be hard to find love songs that are explicitly about the gay experience. Whether it’s a gorgeous ballad about falling in love with a boy, or a thundering track about bringing it to the bedroom, gay and bisexual guys deserve to have their experiences reflected in songs, too.
Instead of waiting to hear that perfect track about man-to-man romance, we decided to offer a helping hand with this list of 30 gay love songs.
Queer pop’s golden boy Troye Sivan is a master of crafting songs about queer relationships, and this one is no exception. “Lucky Strike” shimmers with dreamy synths while Troye confesses to his lover all of different reasons he finds him so attractive.
While Sam Smith may have once faced criticism for a lack of gender-specific pronouns in his songs, “Him” more than makes up for it. This heartbreaking ballad follows a young man coming out of the closet to his father by confessing his love for another man, all while Smith’s stunning vocals convey both the pain and the tenderness of the song at the same time.
While the subtext of “Preacher” hints at a particularly one-sided desire, there is no denying that this bouncing bop off of Years & Years’ Palo Santo is an excellent love song about finding yourself face to face with “the one.”
Wanna let your lover know just how sexy you find them? Look no further than MNEK’s simmering single “Tongue.” The British star’s track employs his exuberant sexuality, a hard-hitting beat and expertly-crafted melodies to make this one of the sexiest songs about gay romance in recent memory.
Pop upcomer Vincint wants you to stop beating around the bush with his dramatically passionate single “Mine.” From suggesting light attraction to literally pleading his lover to be with him, Vincint pulls out all of the stops on the heart-pounding love song.
Throughout his career, Sakima has shown us time and time again that he knows how to write good music about gay sex. But what differentiates “Show Me” is its tenderness — while on past songs, Sakima focuses on the heat and passion of gay romance, this sensual track frames sex as a means of loving communication between two partners.
Inspired by The Little Mermaid’s “Kiss the Girl,” Keiynan Lonsdale’s debut single turns the Disney classic on its head, encouraging his listeners to follow their heart and kiss the boys they love. With the help of some entrancing melodies and gorgeous singing on Lonsdale’s part, “Kiss the Boy” successfully displays the singer’s unique ability to make his audience swoon with a song.
The lyrics to Brockhampton’s electrifying music has never shied away from frontman Kevin Abstract’s gayness. But “Something About Him,” a short, slowed down ballad from the group’s hit album Iridescence, brings the rapper’s experience to the forefront, as he expounds on why he’s infatuated with his lover.
Indie-pop stars Cub Sport dialed into their romantic side with their self-titled 2019 record’s “Butterflies.” The track’s commanding melody perfectly contrasts the head-over-heels emotion they portray through the lyrics, making this a fun, strange trip through gay romance.
Former Vampire Weekend member Rostam manages to combine the ever-present ethereal quality of his music with touching lyrics about struggling to find your dream partner. As always, Rostam’s artful interpretation of complex love comes across beautifully in this dreamy track.
Taking inspiration from the 1994 film of the same name, Frank Ocean’s smooth jam “Forrest Gump” is an ode to unapologetic queer love. The track displays not only a deep love of the 1994 film, but shows emotional maturity in acknowledging the reality of losing the person you love most.
Seattle-based singer/songwriter Perfume Genius accesses the most affectionate part of himself with “Alan,” a heartfelt ode to the singer’s boyfriend, Alan Wyffels. The song’s lyrics highlight the quieter, more tender parts of a relationship, encapsulating the idea of feeling safe in someone’s arms.
Sometimes all a good song needs is a simple bassline and some sultry vocals. That’s what listeners get when listening to pop singer Alextbh’s seductive “Still Mine,” as they follow the singer’s persistent hang-up on an ex-lover.
In “Dance Like You,” Vardaan Arora finds himself entranced by a dancing stranger, wishing he could be with him. With the appropriate club-ready production backing him up, Arora shows what falling in love on the dancefloor really feels like.
Love and passion are universal languages, as Solomon Ray expertly demonstrates in his sensuous bop “Así Así.” Switching constantly between English and Spanish, the singer asks his bilingual lover to give him everything he’s got.
When you combine the talent and confidence of drag star Shea Couleé with the otherworldly production of art pop artist Gess, you’re met with the haunting love song “Gasoline.” As Couleé breaks down her lover’s preconceptions about what love is, Gess delivers a distorted melody, sending their listeners to the stars.
K-pop stars don’t usually get opportunities to express their same-sex love thanks to Korea’s rigid anti-gay policies. But pop singer Holland defied expectations with his release of “Neverland,” one of the first K-pop songs with openly gay connotations. As Holland begs his lover to fly with him to a place where they can be free, you’ll find yourself both crying and applauding at the same time.
If the sexy falsetto tones of Bronze Avery’s voice don’t immediately melt your heart, then perhaps the words to this irresistible earwom “Want 2” will. Offering himself up to his new love interest, singing “Let’s do what we wanna do/ Imma take my time on you/ Swear I gotta list of that shit I wanna do,” Avery not only shows off his vocal dexterity, but his emotional availability.
Getting caught up in the heat of passion happens to everyone, and songwriter to the stars Jesse Saint John (Britney Spears, Camila Cabello) invites you to live in that moment with “What Do U Like.” Listening to Saint John’s sex-laden dance track makes you excited to hear what comes next on his already star-studded streak of expert pop writing.
Even if he’s only released a live version of this song, Wrabel manages to pull at your heartstrings with the lovesick “That’s What I’d Do.” Singing about an unselfish desire to show someone love, Wrabel brings his sensitive musical stylings to an all-time high on this beautiful new song.
On his debut track “Boy,” up-and-coming pop singer Aaron Porter shows off every sensual trick in his arsenal. The song deals with allowing yourself to be more vulnerable in front of your crush, while simultaneously showing them why they belong with you.
A Great Big World’s “Hold Each Other” begins as most other love songs do — a boy singing about the girl who keeps him young at heart. But by the song’s second verse, the duo’s openly gay member, Chad King, chimes in to show that exact same sentiment to a boy, thus showing once again that pronouns matter when it comes to penning a queer love song.
Pentatonix members Mitch Grassi and Scott Hoying turn on the charm in their high-energy dance track “Fantasy.” Singing about a picture-perfect relationship, the talented duo bring listeners into a dreamy landscape of love and romance.
Ryan Ashley’s tender vocals perfectly mirror his compassionate lyrics on his heartwarming single “Care for You.” Sometimes true love is showing someone that you are there for them, and Ashley expertly exemplifies the ideal partner here.
Sometimes you just can’t wait for that special man to make his way over to you, which alt-pop singer Morgxn manages to convey in his song “xx.” Coming from a singer with a discography full of songs about pain, loss and heartbreak, “xx” plays out as a beaming pillar of light that will fill you with flirtatious joy.
While the subject matter of the 2018 film Boy Erased may not lend itself to pure romantics, it’s clear that Troye Sivan’s collaboration with Sigur Rós’ Jónsi for the film’s soundtrack perfectly does. Basking in the light of pure love, Sivan’s crystal-clear baritone pairs perfectly with Jónsi’s simple production, creating not only an extremely moving scene for the film, but a beautiful love song for the ages.
Some may say that teenage love is inherently silly, but young pop singer Robokid instead focuses on the hopeless romanticism that comes with it on “17.” With a hazy production and an instantly catchy beat, Robokid manages to capture the teenage experience in a song.
Sometimes, the simple possibility of love can be just as romantic as the real thing, as pop upcomer Leo Kalyan demonstrates in his song “Horizon.” Accompanied by a thundering bass and a quiet melody, Kalyan explains how even just a touch from his lover can send him into a spiral of pleasure.
Take dance-pop producer Jax Jones, add in pop stars Years & Years, and you get the extremely fun and flirty “Play.” Centering around a man bringing his emotional walls down to start having some fun with his same-sex lover, “Play” will have you and your partner up and dancing in no time.
Above all, the most important kind of love that a person can find is self love, which Dev Hynes and Carly Rae Jepsen explore at length in “Better Than Me.” The song deals with Hynes’ constant fear that he is either not black or queer enough, but ultimately sends home the message that the truest love you can find is deep within yourself, not in someone else.

After a decade later, nobody would have guessed that same Troye Sivan would rise as a pop icon. And also as an LGBTQ representative. From singing in front of the soulless camera to being Grammy Nominee in 2018, Troye sure has come a long way.
Let’s know more about Troye Sivan, a young Aussie boy, and his journey to the American Music Industry.

Azealia Banks Just Dragged Troye Sivan For Being „Entitled“
„These white gays love to dog me yet can never keep my name out of their mouths“
Azealia Bans has described Troye Sivan as „entitled“ after recent comments he made about her in an interview with Zach Sang.
In the 40 minute interview, Troye answers questions about his new single and album, as well as talking about his life since releasing his first album Blue Neighbourhood in 2015.
At one point, Sang asks Troye whether there will be any collaborations on his upcoming record. Troye dodges the question somewhat, saying, „I don’t know. There’s one song I could potentially get someone on but I just haven’t done it yet.“ Then comes the follow up question: would he ever work with a rapper? „Ummm Kevin Abstract would be really cool. He’s a legend“ he says. But then he brings up Azealia Banks:
„And else? I mean, I was a huge Azealia Banks fan but that all went south a little bit. It’s just one of those annoying things where you just wanna support [her] so bad and it just doesn’t work out like that. Then she’ll put out a song and you’ll be like ‚it’s so good‘ but you just can’t engage.“
Azealia was quick to respond to Troye’s comments. In an Instagram stories post, she responded saying he was „entitled“ and that „these white gays love to dog me yet can never keep my name out of their mouths.“
„Ok tbh i have never heard a Troye Sivan song a day in my life. The only reason I know about him is because the kunt brigade [Azealia’s fan group name] likes him. But how is he gonna be like „he wanted to collab but things went south“… what type of entitlement?“
She continues, „LOL, who told him a collab with me was a possibility? What happens if I personally have no interest in collaborating with him??? ?? These white gays love to dog me yet can never keep my name out of their mouths.“
„For the record I am not interested nor have I ever been interested in a collaboration with Troye Sivan. The type of entitlement with which he’s chosen to mention me is a real turn ;t even know the kid“

‚Although I came out as gay to my family, there was still a lot to I hid, the way I wanted to move, dress speak,‘ the singer said.
Younger years: The singer-songwriter, 24, told Harper’s BAZAAR Australia Man: ‚Growing up in a society where I didn’t want to be gay for the first 15 years of my life, I was terrified of it‘ (Pictured: Troye in 2014)
Back in 2018, Troye told Another Man magazine that he ‚politely declined‘ being called a ‚a gay icon‘.
‚With people like Hayley Kiyoko and Brockhampton, we’re starting to get, finally, a diverse group of different LGBTQ perspectives,‘ he explained.
‚That’s why I politely don’t want to take on that „gay icon“ thing. I’m one voice of so many that are missing, and so I’m just trying to tell my story.‘

Troye, who has been dating model Jacob Bixenman for the past three years, features on the cover of the fashion publication comes after he wrapped his tour of Australia and New Zealand.
The Perth-raised singer said in a previous interview with Sunrise’s Edwina Bartholomew: ‚I want to take this moment to publicly apologise at how long it’s taken me to do this.‘
‚For me, playing in Australia is like coming home. I really put a lot of pressure on myself to get out there and do a good job,‘ he added.

Who is Lauv?
Lauv (real name Ari Staprans Leff) is an American singer, songwriter and record producer, born in San Fransisco, California.
The 24-year-old is most known for single I Like Me Better. He has not previously publicly come out as gay.
He took to Instagram earlier this month to record a video of him talking about Sivan, where he mentions him as his ‘friend’.
Lauv said in the video: ‘I just made, for no reason at all, a playlist with my friend Troye Sivan – our favorite songs to sleep to. So there’s nothing implied whatsoever. Just check out that playlist if you want to fall asleep randomly.’
He also referenced Troye Sivan as an ‘iconic friend’ in a New Year’s Day tweet.
So it sounds like this may all just be a publicity stunt after all.
Personal Life: Coming Out Story
On August 7, 2013, Troye Sivan publicly came out as gay in his Youtube video. The video has been viewed over 8 million times since the release.
After his revelation as a gay man, Troye has received love and support from his family and peers. He even revealed that Troye came out to his family three years before the public announcement.
Since then, Troye has spoken and fought against the homophobic and social discriminations made towards LGBTQ Community. His Wild EP in 2015 depicts the story of two gay teenagers in a secret relationship and the prejudice they face in society.
Following his revelation, many people, especially teenagers, have found courage in coming out to their loved ones as well. They see Troye as a source of inspiration and courage.
Now, the pop icon himself is enjoying his life with his boyfriend Jacob Bixenman, a model. The young couple met each other during a fashion event and started their relationship in 2016. Currently, the couple is living happily in Los Angeles, USA.
Fans have been debating Troye and Azealia’s comments on social media. Some feel like his comments were fair and, in part, supportive of Azealia. Others are questioning why he would bring her up in the first place if only to „shade“ her.
Me asking Troye the reason as to why he can’t support Azealia Banks because there is no VALID reason
First of all he didn’t say he hates her,he said that he still enjoys her music and still tries to support her so stop ignoring that BUT if he did say he hates her 1-it’s his opinion 2-she is homophobic and that personally offends him since he is part of the lgbt+ community
good morning why are people fighting over troye’s opinion of azealia banks when he literally said her music is great he just can’t support her for what shes said and he said it in the literal politest and most professional way possible
I’m just not really sure why all y’all are being so petty about this? Troye said what he said, that’s his opinion, he didn’t say anything derogatory towards Azealia. Move on, BUT instead y’all are tearing Troye to shreds for no reason because he doesn’t like your fave. Bye ??
I don’t think what Troye said about Azealia was that bad what I do think however is why even bring her up? Like why even make a comment? I just hate how if she were to respond it would be seen as a her attacking as opposed to reacting!
Sivan came out publicly as gay three years after coming out to his family
During his YouTube vlogging days, Troye gained a reputation for being open with fans. He shared everything with his viewers, but he kept his sexuality a secret for a while before coming out. On 7th August 2013, Sivan came out publicly as gay, three years after he’d come out to his family.
Sivan revealed that he’d known for a long time that he was gay. He said:
“It feels kind of weird to have to announce it like this on the internet… This is not something that I am ashamed of and it is not something that anyone should have to be ashamed of. So why not share it with all of you guys? I am terrified. I know that some people could have a problem with this.”
Since coming out, Sivan has engaged all manner of discussions about being gay. He is viewed by many as a Pride icon due to the contributions he’s made to promoting inclusivity and equality.
Sivan and his long-term ex-boyfriend Jacob Bixenman broke up quietly at the start of 2020
Sivan and Jacob met at a fashion show in 2016 and started dating almost immediately. They soon started spending a lot of time together, and after dating for a few months, Sivan moved in with Jacob in LA. Sivan talked to about what attracted him to Jacob:
“I don’t know, I mean, I think he’s got a kid of energy about him, a magnetic sort of energy. I think people can’t help but love him. He’s just got one of those personalities that draws people in.”
Unfortunately, Sivan and Jacob seem to have ended their relationship after four years of dating. Fans of the couple first noted that all was not well when the couple failed to post their annual February anniversary dedication to each other on social media. It was then reported that Sivan left the couple’s home in LA to quarantine with his family in Australia.
The couple’s posts about each other also dried up. There hasn’t been an official breakup confirmation from the couple, but the writing is on the wall. Sivan’s latest EP, In a Dream, reportedly addresses his emotional breakup. According to , Sivan said:
“A story that’s still unfolding, this small collection of songs explores an emotional rollercoaster period in my life when the feelings and thoughts were most shockingly fresh. Revisiting these songs and moments is tough, but I’m proud of this music and excited to have it out in the world.”

The video featured various gay pride moments in history and served as an emotional celebration of the LGBT community. It was released at the same time as the inauguration of President Donald Trump. Sivan urged his fans to „continue to fight“ in the „dark and light times.“

But Troye tasted global fame first not for his singing, but his acting. Troye Sivan played the younger version of Hugh Jackman in the 2007 action movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Since then, along with his singing career, Sivan has also flourished in the industry as an actor.
On June 5, 2013, Troye Sivan signed with EMI Australia and began making music videos. In 2014, on August 15, Sivan dropped his first album from EMI Australia, tilted TRXYE. ‘Happy Little Pills’ from the same album earned massive success, peaking at number 10 on ARIA Singles Chart.
Later, it was certified gold by the Australian Recording Industry Association for exceeding 35,000 copies. The album was a massive hit. The whole album charted at number 1 in 55 countries.
Since then, Troy has released over three significant albums. Wild EP in 2015, Blue Neighbourhood in 2016, and Bloom recently in 2018. The Wild EP was supported by a trilogy titled Wild, Fools, and Take Me Down. The trilogy also acted as an introduction to his next album Blue Neighbourhood.
With each album, the young singer has evolved in terms of his music and as a whole person. Not only does his music are lyrically and musically well-produced, but it also resonates with many people.
But unlike his previous music, Sivan’s new album Bloom contains very sensual and provocative songs. In his recent interview, Troye confessed that the album itself was written about his boyfriend.

Also, Troye was nominated for sic SAFTAS for his lead role in Spud, a movie adaptation of the 2005 novel of the same name. Similarly, in 2018, Troye received the Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song for ‘Revelation,’ which was written for the movie ‘Boy Erased.’ Also, Sivan was short-listed for the Academy Awards.
Also, in his early Youtube days, Troye collaborated with Tyler Oakley for The Boyfriend Tag video and even won Teen Choice Award for the Most Popular Web Collaboration in 2014.
Troye also sang title tracks for movies such as Fault in Our Stars(2014) and Boy Erased(2018). Furthermore, Troye has graced various red carpet events and music shows.
“We’re in West Hollywood [where] brunch is definitely a Sunday thing,” observed Parson James, referring to the first “Out to Brunch” luncheon, which celebrated some of the most successful gay songwriters, artists and other creatives yesterday at Cecconi’s restaurant. “Sundays are for booze-y brunches, you know? Everyone is super-depressed on Saturday nights, so Sundays you need to keep drinking,” joked Lucas Keller, president and founder of the management company Milk & Honey, who cohosted the event with singer-songwriters James “JHart” Abrahart and Brett “Leland” McLaughlin. Then he gulped down a Bloody Mary.
“I’m so excited to be here,” said the music industry’s queer poster boy, Troye Sivan, in between exchanging air-kisses with admirers. “I am constantly so floored by the talent and influence that the LGBTQ community, specifically in music, has. You know, queer people have been writing your favorite songs forever; the talent has always been there. To be able to recognize it publicly and find community in it is so amazing. And to see it celebrated in this room and for everyone to come together and get to mingle and hang out and strategize and organize writing sessions? It’s so fun. Nothing brings me greater joy than seeing my queer friends succeed.”
“I resent the fact that as a 34-year-old, I didn’t live in the David Geffen-Barry Diller era,” Keller said of his inspiration for the gathering. “It was the early days of Hollywood before any of these guys they were out, and nobody told their wife they were gay. They were the gay mafia — the ‘velvet mafia,’ so to speak — the people that ran the town. And so the idea was: Can we get this community together that’s LGBTQ people in entertainment — music, TV and film — and have people get to know each other. This is a group of folks that makes up the top 40 charts.” (The fact that it also happened to be the birthday of Geffen’s ex-girlfriend, Cher, as well as the day of the Billboard Music Awards, was not lost on McLaughlin: “This is also Cher’s unofficial birthday party,” he proclaimed.)
“We get the short end of the stick from executives, so as creative people it’s important for us to stay unified and feel like a family,” said Abrahart, explaining his interest in serving as a cohost. “And resist the temptation to be competitive and to undercut each other because we already get that, anyway.”
“LGBTQ people are marginalized in the world and in the music business, so I think there’s even more love and support here,” agreed prolific songwriter Justin Tranter, former front man of the band Semi Precious Weapons, while gazing around the room. “People will say to me sometimes: ‘Are you nervous because people are saying that Brett McLaughlin — Leland — is the new Justin Tranter?’ I’ll be like: ‘Um, first of all, there’s room for all LGBTQ people to succeed, not just one. And second: That would be amazing if there were 20 massive LGBTQ songwriters at the top of the charts.’ Women experience that in our business, too. They’ll say, ‘This young woman is the new so-and-so.’ Because in people’s minds, there can only be one person of color killing it, only one woman killing it, only one LGBTQ person killing it. Which is obviously not the case.” (Acknowledging the lack of both racial and gender diversity at the brunch, Tranter, the self-proclaimed “social justice queen of the music industry,” pointed out that he had invited Shea Diamond, a trans artist of color, but she had to fly to New York for a last-minute event.)
“Right now what’s so amazing about the L.A. pop scene is that for the most part everyone collaborates,” added Tranter. “So if Ilsey [Juber, who happened to be the token female songwriter in attendance] has a big hit, the thought doesn’t cross my mind: ‘Oh, fuck, I should’ve been in that session.’ The thought crosses my mind of: ‘Oh, Ilsey had a huge hit. I’m probably going to write with her in a couple months.’ And then it only helps everybody. Back in the day, people had their camps, and they would work with only their camps. But we’re in a really collaborative time that dims the dark side of the competitive spirit.” In other words, even though Tom Campbell, longtime executive producer of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” came to raise awareness about “Lip Sync for Your Life” songs being “on the endangered species list,” this particular gathering was remarkably free of shade, trash-talking and catfights.
But as the wine flowed freely, talk inevitably turned to homophobia in the industry. “Do I think it’s prevalent? Yeah,” said Abrahart. “Doing things like this helps it to be eradicated, but there’s definitely an underbelly. I had a number one in country music a year and half ago with Keith Urban. I’m not gonna lie — I was a little scared about the Nashville community because of what you hear. But they could not have been more welcoming.”
And Abrahart isn’t alone. “I even sometimes feel weird when I go into a session and I know it’s going to be straight producers and straight artists,” admitted Ferras Alqaisi, who wrote “Bon Appétit” for Katy Perry. “Fortunately, I’ve never experienced anything that made me feel uncomfortable, but it is out there. I hear stories.”
Justin Tranter, for one, is no stranger to homophobic experiences in the industry, which he claims to experience “every single day. Whether it’s passive or aggressive, there’s always something,” he told Variety. “I won’t get put in certain sessions because they’ll think: ‘Oh, he would never understand that.’ That sort of stuff happens all the time. When I was an artist, it was way worse. I’d be asked to wear less makeup, I’d be asked to not use same-sex pronouns, which is part of the reason I stopped doing [the band]. Because it was exhausting.”
“As far as blatant homophobia? No, I haven’t felt that,” added Sivan, who at the same time acknowledged that young artists feel pressure to stay in the closet. “I still think so, yeah,” he said. “We’re all pushing for change but we’ve got a really long way to go. So I don’t blame anyone for that [choice]. I would like to think that events like this are creating a safer space for everyone to be open about who they are, but I don’t know if we’re there yet.”
“Forcing people into the closet — or making them feel that they can’t be themselves without facing some sort of criticism — can be deadly, especially if you’re in the public eye,” added Parson James, who noted that he wears a cross earring in memory of George Michael. Earlier in his career, James had his own struggle with forcing open the closet door. “I was signed to a major label that was run by homosexual people and they discouraged me from saying too much about my sexuality,” recalled James. “That was soul-crushing just because you’re in a position of power to empower people like me — and people like those who are coming up and wanting to express themselves. It was a dark realization about the monetization and the product that you become when you’e in the industry.”
James paused and gazed around the restaurant. “There are pioneers here like Adam Lambert, who was just wholeheartedly himself and put his f—ing foot forward and didn’t hold back,” he said. “A lot of people bashed him for what he did, but to be honest, I think if people like him didn’t come around when the conversations were so mum, then we couldn’t have people like Troye or myself.”
The “American Idol” breakout star-turned-solo artist happened to be sitting alone with a forlorn look on his face while the brunch was winding down. Lambert likened his experience coming out to “being thrown into a pot of boiling water. It was a different time,” he told Variety. “When I was getting into music, it felt like an uphill battle. I mean, I don’t think I felt like anybody was blocking me or rejecting me because they actually had an issue with gay people,” Lambert said of his team at the record label. “But there has always been a concern — especially when I started — of: How do we connect this with a mainstream audience? A lot of these guys hadn’t done that before, the label people I was working with at the time. This was a new situation and there was no formula. There was a little fear surrounding that, surrounding the desire for success.”
Admittedly, Lambert battled with internalized homophobia as well. “There were moments after my first year or two on the scene where I started getting insecure,” he said. “I started thinking: ‘Do I need to change who I am to fit in, or to achieve success?’ The thing I’ve learned the hard way is that you can’t please everybody. And ultimately, the people who do well in this business tend to be the people that just are who they are. They’re not trying to be part of a trend or dress like somebody else or become palatable. So now I’m at a point in my career where I’m being true to who I am; I’m being authentic; I’m being myself and not making any apologies for it.”
So far, at least, an unapologetic attitude has proven to be a winning formula (not to mention a successful marketing move) for Sivan. “I would say that I am really lucky that I came into the industry at the time that I did — people were ready for it,” he told Variety. “Identity politics are a really hot topic. You know, it’s not cool to be homophobic or racist or sexist or whatever. It’s so frowned upon now that people had no choice. People were like: ‘This is where things are heading and we have to embrace that.’ And so I just caught that moment at the right time and rode that wave.”
“I wonder sometimes about who is it that I am appealing to,” Sivan added, reflecting on his ever-growing fanbase. “Is it girls? Is it guys? Is it gay guys? I don’t know. And I think my response to that is to not think about it and just do what feels right.”

Troye Sivan just posted the cutest photo of himself with his boyfriend Jacob Bixenman.
Taking to Twitter last night (20 November), he tweeted the adoable photo with the caption: ‘hello!’
At the time of writing, the photo’s received over 10,000 retweets and over 100,000 likes.
One comment was from recently retired Winter Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon. He simply replied: ‘My fathers’.
Der südafrikanische/australische Sänger Troye Sivan hat seine neue Single „Wild“ veröffentlicht. Das Video dazu erreichte knapp 4 Mio. Aufrufe innerhalb 2 Wochen!
Der 20-jährige Troye Sivan erzählt im Musikvideo zu seiner Single „Wild (Blue Neighbourhood Part 1/3)“ die Geschichte zweier Jungs, die jede freie Minute miteinander verbringen und recht bald Gefühle für einander empfinden. Diese Gefühle werden im Laufe der Zeit und der Jahre immer stärker und, entgegen dem offensichtlichen Widerstand der Väter, enden Troye (jaa, einer der beiden ist er) und sein Freund (Matthew Eriksson) in einer feurig-schönen Kussszene. #lovewins
Und wer sich jetzt fragt: „Hääh, Troye Sivan, wer ischen se?“ – hier kurz das Wichtigste:
Geboren in Johannesburg, zog aber mit der Familie recht bald ins australische Perth. Dort verbrachte er seine Kindheit, bis ein Hollywood-Agent auf ihn aufmerksam wurde und Troye für die Stelle des jungen James Howlett in X-Mens Origins besetzte. Einige wenige kennen ihn vielleicht durch seinen YouTube-Channel, dort erreichte er unter anderem Aufmerksamkeit durch sein 2013 erschienenes Coming-Out-Video, in dem er erklärte, dass er sich seiner Homosexualität nicht schäme, und seine Fans um Toleranz und Verständnis bittet.
Im letzten Jahr veröffentlichte er sein Album TRXE, welches sich auf Platz 5 in den US-Charts platzierte. Die daraus veröffentlichte Single „Happy Little Pill“ (Platz 10 in den australischen Charts) ist übrigens auch hierzulande bekannt. Am 4. September 2015 veröffentlichte er seine EP „WILD“, die über Nacht auf Platz 1 der australischen Charts stieg und auf Platz 5 der Billboard 200 Charts ist und somit bekannte Musikgrößen wie Megan Trainor und Sam Smith vom Treppchen kickt – für einen relativ unbekannten Musiker ist das eine Megaleistung!
Wie der Videotitel schon verrät, gibt es auch einen zweiten und dritten Teil in der Blue Neighbourhood-Trilogie. Der zweite Teil heißt Fools, zum Inhalt und zur Handlung schweigt Troye aktuell noch. Im #WILDparty Livestream verriet er jedoch, dass das Video bald erscheinen wird. Fakt ist jedoch, dass schlussendlich alle drei Videos zusammen eine Story erzählen werden und sich auch die Beziehung der beiden fiktionalen Charaktere entwickeln wird.
Troye hat eine sehr (ausdrucks-) starke Stimme und ich finde auch, dass seine Art und Weise zu erzählen nahezu einmalig ist. Das Video ist sehr berührend und gefühlvoll und doch wieder süß, romantisch und unschuldig zugleich. Das ist es auch, was Troye erreichen wollte:
“I feel like gay relationships are sexualized in the media and I just wanted to show a romantic, adorable, puppy love situation between two little boys because that’s something we never ever see […] We usually see stories when the teen is grown up, they’re 18, they’re going out, and maybe they’re promiscuous. That’s a […] fun part of gay culture — but there’s also those little baby crushes you have when you’re younger. I wanted to show that naïveté, that innocence, and that joy before someone tells you there’s something ‚wrong‘ with you.”

Troye Sivan just hinted at breaking up with his boyfriend and getting into a new relationship with fellow singer Lauv.
The Bloom singer took to social media over the weekend (25 January) to announce the new relationship. Troye Sivan also announced a new song collaboration with Lauv, i’m so tired.
Sivan wrote in captions across social media: ‘catch me and my new bf [Lauv] performing our new SMASH “i’m so tired” on [Jimmy Kimmel] feb 6th.’
At the time of writing, the song has more than 6.2 million streams on Spotify. The video features both Sivan and Lauv simply driving and dancing along to the song.
Sivan then quote-tweeted a tweet that said: ‘Troye Sivan reveals that he has a new boyfriend and is nothing more and nothing less than the talented Lauv. Both recently launched a single called “I’m So tired”. Promotion?’
The question at the end of the tweet led many to believe the revelation may all just be a publicity stunt.
Troye Sivan and Jacob Bixenman started dating in 2016 and have since moved in together.
There is no public comment yet from Bixenman on his relationship status.
But Sivan recently said: ‘It’s kind of like having your best friend around all the time, which is really nice. I think LA can get lonely and you sort of have to build a life for yourself.’
Speaking about their relationship, Jacob told Gay Times: ‘We’re both people who share ourselves online but need privacy and really value close personal relationships so balancing that line of how much to give away can be interesting.
‘Otherwise our relationship is really easy,’ he added.
