Troye Sivan has announced that $1 from every ticket sold on his upcoming homecoming tour will be directed to support LGBTQIA+ causes.
Given tickets are going on sale today, the organisations that will be supported include, Beyond Blue and Minus18 (in Australia), and RainbowYOUTH (in New Zealand).
The Bloom Tour is heading to Australia’s capital cities. It is the artist’s first tour since 2016, and we’re glad to have him back.
Sivan said, “I’m so excited to be working with BeyondBlue and Minus18 on The Bloom Tour in Australia and with RainbowYOUTH in New Zealand – it was organisations like these who were there for me when I needed them most, and I’m honoured to be able to help support them now by wiggling around on stage.”
The CEO of Beyond Blue, Georgie Harman stated,
“Beyond Blue is thrilled that an artist of Troye’s profile and calibre is sharing our message of hope, recovery and resilience, and helping fund our 24/7 Support Service.”
“We’re proud to support the mental health of everyone in Australia. And we celebrate the strength, resilience and diversity of LGBTI communities who sadly continue to face prejudice and discrimination that affects their mental health. Thank you, Troye.”
Acting CEO for Minus 18, Tony Lee has also expressed his gratitude to Sivan.
“We’re honoured to have the support and recognition from such an inspirational role model – we love you Troye! These proceeds will help to fund free events and inclusive workshops to enable young LGBTQIA+ Australians to feel empowered, validated and safe in their identities. Troye’s music inspires so much joy, pride and friendship at Minus18 events so it’s fitting that his contribution will help foster these into the future.”
