A Transgender Teen Credits Troye Sivan for Giving Him the Strength to Come Out
Through iMessage, Evan nervously told his father that he knew for a while that he was really a boy instead of a girl.
To Evan’s relief, his father was very accepting of his sexual identity, and told Evan that he had his full support in a series of amazing messages.
Evan’s father even promised he would not tell Evan’s less-accepting mother until Evan was ready to come out to her on his own. He even asked Evan what name he wanted to go by, and changed his son’s phone contact name! Amazing!

People all around the world chimed in with their support for Evan and praised his loving father.
