Troye Sivan famously captured the hearts of YouTube viewers when he publicly came out in 2013. For National Coming Out Day, Sivan shared a new message, in which he describes the act of coming out as “the most pivotal moment in my entire life.”
“Speaking up changes hearts and minds and creates new advocates for equality,” he says in the clip.
The video was released as part of the rollout for Boy Erased, a drama that follows a teenage boy’s experiences as he’s forcibly sent to gay conversion camp by his Baptist parents. Boy Erased, which also stars Lucas Hedges and Nicole Kidman, hits theaters on Nov. 2.
The trailer features a snippet of “Revelation,” Sivan’s musical contribution to the film, a collaboration with Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi.
