  1. Well done… but it saddens me greatly to see you have concerns about the ‘religious implications’ of your decision. Take my advice: find a ‘belief’ which doesn’t judge you. 99.9% of ALL homophobia is religiously inspired. We need to give a very clear signal to religion that we don’t give a s**t what condemnation it attempts, for its own ends, to heap on us. Religion is man made. When god appears in a courtroom witness box to speak for himself, I may – just may – give religion a little more credence. Until then, I couldn’t give a flying f**k what it says.

    1. Well, to be fair the religious implications part was kind of bad wording on Pinknews’ part. All he said in the video was that he came out to his dad when they were talking about religion one time and his dad said he didn’t understand why religion would have a problem with someone being gay. I haven’t heard him mention religion in any other context and he certainly doesn’t seem concerned about any implications.

      I’s so weird to see mainstream media taking interest in Troye like this by the way. I understand he’s an actor, but in my head he’s a Youtuber first and if you ask me, those two worlds still don’t have a lot of crossover.

      Also I accidentally clicked the report button. :o I’m very sorry!

    Respect! There are no religious implications… religion is between you and god or whatever you believe. No-one should tell people who they should be or what they should believe in.

  3. Smart kid. All the best.

  4. Troye,
    Just keep in mind that anyone who has a problem with you being gay, it’s their problem only. Not yours. Be Proud of who you are.

      I agree. If somebody makes a homophobic remark to you, then reply, “I hope your homophobia is just a phase you are going through”.
