In a cover interview with the
Australian edition of Harper's BAZAAR Man, singer-actor Troye
Sivan said that he's still terrified of being gay.
The 24-year-old Sivan came out publicly
in a 2013 YouTube video.
"Coming out as gay is one thing.
And then coming out as the person you want to be is a whole other
separate journey," Sivan said.
"Although I came out as gay to my
family, there was still a lot I hid: the way I wanted to move, dress,
speak,” he said, referring to his feminine side.
“Growing up in a society where I
didn't want to be gay for the first 15 years of my life, I was
terrified of it. That's still in there and I'm personally trying to
work it out. I'm enjoying this process of pushing myself, figuring
out, Am I into this? Am I not? There are no rules,” Sivan said.
Sivan added that he “never set out to
be this gay pop idol.”
“It's never been something I've
strived for,” he said.
