One of Your Favorite Gay YouTubers Helps Fan Come Out as Transgender
Less than three months ago, Troye Sivan helped one of his fans come out as bisexual to her mom by reading a note on stage at his Washington D.C. show. “If you are reading this, can you announce that Kelly is bisexual, please,” it read. *Chills* And now, even though the openly gay singer didn’t DIRECTLY have a hand in another one of his fans coming out to a loved one, he definitely played a big role.
Earlier today, one of the 20-year-old’s biggest Troyblemakers, Evan, posted screenshots of a text conversation he had with his dad, telling him he was transgender. According to the fan, the “Youth” singer was a major factor in inspiring him to finally be open with his father.

While some people have a hard time with their family and friends’ responses after coming out, Evan’s dad luckily had an AMAZING reaction to his son’s news. Be still our hearts!
Even though Troye hasn’t (to our knowledge) reached out to Evan about his incredible story, he’s definitely aware of it as he favorited the tweet on his Twitter page.
It’s amazing to know that while some YouTubers are total d-bags, others have an extremely positive impact on the lives of thousands.
These YouTubers’ public coming-out videos definitely helped others come out, too:
Connor has over five million subscribers on YouTube and back in 2014 he decided to tell all of them that he was gay. Before his December 8 video titled "Coming Out," he had denied that he was homosexual and even posted a video months before called "I'm Not Gay." During his video, he talked about how he dated girls in the past to "be normal," but then started to really think about his true sexual identity in college. Connor was truthful and very articulate throughout, and ended the vid by saying, "I don't want anyone to be afraid; I don't want anyone holding back who they are." So inspirational!
