Troye Sivan says he never had the courage to use online LGBTQI services

Troye Sivan revealed his sexuality online at age 18 – the same time in which he signed a record deal.

And the 24-year-old, who is donating $1 from every Australian concert ticket to charity, admitted that as a teenager, he never had the courage to seek help.

Referencing an online LGBTQI group, Troye told News Corp on Saturday: ‘The sad thing was I actually remember being still too scared to actively reach out when I was a teenager.’

‘I would spend ages and ages on the Minus18 Facebook page – they hold these LGBTQI school dances where you can bring the partner you want to bring rather than the one your school would force you to bring,’ the Australian-South African singer explained.

‘I never had the courage to utilise those online services in a physical capacity but knowing they were there, getting on to the website, that was still something.’

Troye is donating $1 from every ticket sold to his Australian Bloom concerts to two charities – Beyond Blue and Minus18.

The Heaven singer will kick off the Australian leg of his Bloom world tour in Perth on September 16, before making stops in Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne.

He explained: 'I never had the courage to utilise those online services in a physical capacity but knowing they were there, getting on to the website, that was still something'

Troye issued a public apology for taking so long to tour his home country, during an appearance on Seven’s Sunrise last month.

‘I want to take this moment to publicly apologise at how long it’s taken me to do this,’ the Perth-raised star told presenter Edwina Bartholomew.

‘For the record, it’s absolutely not my fault, I’ve been literally emailing every day saying, ‘When are we going to Australia?’,’ he added.

Troye said that fans can expect to see his Bloom album ‘come to life’ on stage.

‘For me, playing in Australia is like coming home and I really put a lot of pressure on myself to get out there and do a good job,’ he said.

Troye’s sophomore album Bloom was released last August to critical acclaim. It reached No. 3 on Australia’s ARIA chart and peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200.

The album produced a number of hits, including ‘My My My!’ and ‘Dance to This’ featuring Ariana Grande.
