Troye Sivan has opened up about his “life-changing” experience at his first ever pride parade in his hometown of Perth.
In a video for Paper magazine to celebrate Pride month, the pop star revealed what pride means to him.
“There’s some sort of kinship between LGBT people that is actually indescribable to me,” Troye explained.
“Everyone should go to Pride I think. The electricity that’s in the air. For me at least, it was like a life-changing moment.
“Plus, it’s really, really fun.”
The 22-year-old continued: “I remember being so terrified to tell my parents I wanted to go to Pride, and I was like, ‘Dad, there’s a pride parade in Perth, do you mind giving me a lift?’
“Turns out my whole family piled into the car on that Sunday. I remember somebody coming up and putting a rainbow flag on my dad.
“I probably exaggerate it in my head but I remember the wind blowing through the cape and my dad looking like some gay superhero.
“This guy that I was petrified to tell I was a gay not even a year prior; I just felt that unconditional love that day.”
