At the tender age of 21, Troye Sivan is about to become the youngest person ever to receive the GLAAD Stephen F. Kolzak Award for his work advocating for the LGBTQ
community. Past honorees include Ellen DeGeneres, Laverne Cox and Sir Ian McKellan.
GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis told ET, "Troye Sivan embodies a generation of LGBTQ youth who are unapologetic, outspoken, and proud to be who they are. He has quickly become a leading voice of his generation and sends a message of hope and empowerment with every song, music video, and social post."
