18-year-old Actor and YouTube Vlogger Troye Sivan, who played a young Hugh Jackman in the first Wolverine film ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’, came out as gay to his 450,000 YouTube followers yesterday.
“On August 7, 2010 I told my family that I am gay,” he starts. “And on August 7, 2013 I want you guys to know that I am gay. It feels kind of weird to have to announce it like this on the internet but I feel like a lot of you guys are genuine friends of mine. I share everything with the internet. Whether or not that’s a good thing I don’t know but this is not something that I’m ashamed of.”
He also revealed how he prepared for coming out and the impact other coming out videos have had on him: “I watched nearly every coming out video on the Internet between the ages of 14 1/2 and 15. Without those brave, brave people, I don’t know where I’d be.”
Cheers to being brave and coming out of the closet Troye! Watch his adorable coming out video below:
