Coming out to friends, family and the world in general can be one of the hardest things that a person goes through – which is why it's so important to have awesome and inspirational LGBTQ+ celebs like Troye Sivan opening up about their own experiences.
He's been chatting about his decision to open up about his sexuality when he was just 15 years old, and it sounds like Troye's loved ones were pretty amazing and supportive about the whole thing.
Chatting to Ryan Seacrest for Heat Radio, Troye opened up about his own experience with coming out around five years ago, revealing that it was his dad in particular who gave him the perfect reaction to the news.
"I come from a close family," Troye spilled. "And I felt like I was lying and I didn't want to do that. I felt crippled by this secret I was holding.
"I was a ball of nervous energy for a couple of months, and one day I was talking to my dad and I told him. He just looked at me and gave me a big hug – he was amazing about it," Troye admitted.
It SO great to hear that Troye's family were super supportive of his honesty about his sexuality. You can check out LOADS of other YouTubers talking coming out and their own experiences of it all in our feature right here.
