At just 21, Troye Sivan shows remarkable reverence for LGBTI activists who came before him
- Troye Sivan may have been the youngest person to receive GLAAD’s Stephen F. Kolzak Award but he has one of strongest senses of LGBTI history of any honoree.
The 21-year-old music artist paid beautiful tribute – by name – to some of the activists who came before him including Rainbow Flag creator Gilbert Baker who died last week.
‘This award is so much larger than me,’ Sivan told the crowd at the 28th annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday (1 April). ‘So much of the work that has contributed to our progress as a community is far less glamorous than what I’m being honored for here tonight.
‘While I’m so grateful and thankful to have this award, I would like to share it with with the warriors who made it possible but maybe didn’t get one for themselves.
