    When his voice sort of broke when he was talking about his mum I actually started crying.

    Every time I think I've reached a level where I can't possible love him more, I come back to his YouTube channel or listen to his album and my heart swells. No one has ever made me as proud of myself and my sexuality as him. It's through his videos that I found the courage to come out to my family, pursue girls, buy rainbow clothing, and generally just be myself. Troye Sivan, you might not post on this channel frequently (or ever) anymore, but I will always love and admire your videos and your time as a YouTuber. To me, you'll always be the person I looked up to in one of my hardest moments, while I was struggling with who I am, and I am so incredibly proud of you. I don't know you personally, I'll probably never have that privilege, but that's okay because I've had the joy of witnessing your ascent into YouTube fame and musical fame, your work in the LGBT+ community, and how amazing of a man you have turned into. I am so proud to call myself one of your fans and I will always be that. Even if you never make another YouTube video or another song, you've changed my life in ways you can't even imagine and just knowing there are people like you in the world gives me so much hope. I can't thank you enough for everything you have done for me, the community, and the world. Troye, you are genuinely an amazing human being and I am so incredibly proud to just live in the same time as you. I have so much love, respect, and admiration for everything that you have done and continue to do. If you ever read this, just know that no matter what happens, you will always have the gay girl from Alabama as a fan. Always. Thank you for all the laughs from your videos, for all the fun I've had singing your music loudly (and badly) driving down the road, and for all the joy you have brought me. You are incredibly, Troye. Though you probably already know that.

    this made me cry so hard. here in Czech Republic, we don't talk enough about LGBTQ+ stuff, I don't know one trans person in the media. everytime someone says the word 'trans' people start to laugh, and that makes me feel bad because I myself am transgender. I wanna do something, anything to help represent the LGBTQ+ community in Czech Republic. I don't know how I'm gonna do it, but I'm gonna do it. Public speaking is my biggest fear, but I would love to do it if it's gonna help LGBTQ+ kids.

    I had to prepare a speech on the notion of "myth and heroes" for school and I talked about Civil Right activists such as MLK and Rosa Parks but I also talk about lgbt activists like Bayard Rustin (he was a great transition from segregation to lgbt fights) and Troye. Troye you are an inspiration for a lot of people, continue to do you, you re amazing!

    It is SO good to see someone so young recognizing those who made this possible. I feel like so many people are oblivious to the war that came before them. I LOVE how many facts and statistics Troye drops in this speech. He is just fantastic.

  • aesthxtic melanchxly

    im so fucking proud like i cant even put it into words. troye, ily so much ive been watching you for so many years and i am so honored and lucky to be watching you grow from your 'smol slightly like underdeveloped closeted jewish boy' into a frankly very beautiful and amazing and inspiring person. you have helped me accept myself as pansexual and see myself as what society may not deem as 'normal' but im okay with it.

    and yes, you are a 'pop twink' and i love you for it. youve helped the lgbtq+ community and im so thankful.

    also, id like to thank you ,laurelle and shaun, for being amazing people, ily both, thank you for bringing up such a wonderful human.

    thank you troye, i appreciate you. alot.
    all love,
    izabella from oregon, US

    p.s. stay in your "uttah perfection" beauty
