Troye Sivan Salutes LGBTI Equality Pioneers In Acceptance Speech

Troye Sivan Salutes LGBTI Equality Pioneers In Acceptance Speech
- Troye Sivan used his GLAAD Award acceptance speech on the weekend to pay tribute to LGBTI activists throughout history.
On Sunday, Troye got the Stephen F. Kolzak Award, awarded to openly LGBTI figures who have worked to further the cause of LGBTI equality.
“This award is so much larger than me. This moment is about visibility and about representation,” he said in his emotional speech.
“What and who we see in the media defines our perception of the world around us and so to see ourselves in this picture of what is ‘normal’ and what is ‘acceptable’ and what is ‘beautiful’ is absolutely vital.”
“In saying that, so much of the work that has contributed to our progress as a community is far less glamorous than the work I’m being honoured for tonight.”
