Troye Sivan Boyfriend Spills On Their Hot 'Power Coupling'
Twenty-three-year-old international modeling sensation Jacob Bixenman opens wide up about his relationship with the twenty-two-year-old freshly-minted sex symbol Troye Sivan in the March issue of Gay Times Magazine. Sivan came out as gay in 2013 and since has proven himself to be the singer to watch out for, especially with his earworm hit My My My! Bixenman is one of those impossibly lean and gorgeous models that leaves me wondering if I am a Heffalump or a Woozle, and when you throw in the fact that both are passionate about the LBGTQ community, this really is the celebrity couple to watch out for.
Bixenman on the importance of expressing his sexuality:
That relationship is different for everyone, but I do find it personally important to be transparent about my sexuality online. I didn’t have that many personal models of queerness growing up, aside from stereotypical characters on screen. I think that the more we personalize the image of what it means to be LGBTQ the more people will understand.
On the challenges of being half of an "it" celebrity couple:
At times it is, yes, and it was tougher in the beginning of our relationship because it was more of a crash course for me. We’re both people who share ourselves online but need privacy and really value close personal relationships so balancing that line of how much to give away can be interesting. Otherwise our relationship is really easy.
And finally, on expressing gender however the hell he wants:
The idea of what a man is or needs to be is so ingrained into culture and it’s easier to be accepted when you’ve assimilated to that. But there are as many ways to be queer as there are queer people. Male femininity threatens the status quo so I think that sharing and celebrating it really makes people confront their own insecurities. It’s a step in the direction towards actual liberation.
These two have been making waves in the gay community since they began dating in 2016, and it warms my heart that young, questioning gay youths have these out and proud role models to look up to who are not afraid to speak their minds. I had Jack McPhee from Dawson's Creek. Which, TBH wasn't a bad option. But still.
