    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.
