“I’m 23, über-happy and enjoying life,” says Troye Sivan. With a “mellow” new relationship, a must-see movie and a stunning new album, Bloom, Troye is queering up the world… beautifully.

On August 31, Troye Sivan releases Bloom, his much-anticipated second album. At the ripe young age of 23, it represents a huge artistic leap forward from 2015’s Blue Neighbourhood, his debut.

Born into a Jewish family in Johannesburg, South Africa, Troye grew up in Western Australia’s capital, Perth, often singing at the local synagogue. He came out at the relative young age of 14. While working on his burgeoning, self-financed pop career, he was also noticed for his acting abilities.

“It’s cool, when you’re getting some shit at school for being gay, to know that you just filmed X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” he says wistfully. “I was thankful to have the arts to help me secure my place in the world.”

At 18 he came out to the world on YouTube, at the same time, coincidentally, he signed a major label record contract.

About DNA Magazine

We’ve “curated” 35 of the hottest men on the planet for your perusal. Find out who they are enjoy this special edition of DNA! Troye Sivan is the hottest gay pop star right now. We have an exclusive chat with him and bring you some never-before-seen pics. Troye tells us about his gorgeous boyfriend, finding the inner-strength to come out, and how he even shocked himself during the filming of his video for Bloom. In another DNA exclusive, we visit the set of iconic Aussie soap, Neighbours for the wedding of Aaron and David and chat to the actors who play them – Matt Wilson and Takaya Honda. There’s obvious chemistry between the boys and they don’t mind sharing stories: “We’ve been butt naked together!” How about a Gus Kenworthy exclusive? We’ve got one! The Olympic skier is on our Sexiest list and he tells us why it’s important that more athletes to come out… and who he crushes on when he’s not crushing on his boyfriend. Hollywood hottie Tab Hunter sadly passed away recently. He was the first golden pin-up boy – the template that all the Hemsworths and Efrons and Pratts have followed since. We recall his amazing career, his come-back as a cult favourite opposite Divine, and his secret affair with Anthony Perkins. Wait! There’s more – we chat to Mr Gay World Jordan Bruno, get frisky with Daniel “Hot Cop” Rengering, talk “reality” and celebrity chums with sexy Davis Mallory and meet Bjork’s gorgeous bestie, Manu Delago.
