Via press release:
In celebration of National Coming Out Day, Troye Sivan is sharing a special message on his own coming out story. The video also features a preview of Troye’s upcoming film, “Boy Erased” that tells the courageous story of Jared Eamons (Lucas Hedges), the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town, who must overcome the fallout of being outed to his parents (Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe). His parents struggle with reconciling their love for their son with their beliefs. Fearing a loss of family, friends, and community, Jared is pressured into attending a conversion therapy program. While there, Jared comes into conflict with its leader (Joel Edgerton) and begins his journey to finding his own voice and accepting his true self.
The world may want to change you, but no one can erase who you are. This National Coming Out, we celebrate the #LGBTQ community and living truthfully and openly.
