Promoting his forthcoming sophomore album of the same name, the 23-year-old Australian singer’s North American tour kicks off September 21 with supporting acts Kim Petras, Leland, and Carlie Hanson.
The Ally Coalition, a non-profit founded in 2013 by Jack and Rachel Antonoff to advance equality for queer youth, will mobilize and connect Sivan’s fans in every city with local and national organizations providing essential services to young LGBTQ people.
Sivan and the Ally Coalition have chosen the Trevor Project as the Bloom tour’s national partner. The Trevor Project is the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization aimed to LGBTQ youth.
At last year’s GLAAD Media Awards, Sivan, who came out publicly on YouTube at the age of 14, became the youngest recipient of the Stephen F. Kolzak Award, presented to LGBTQ media professionals who promote equality and acceptance in their work and life. He honored trailblazing LGBTQ activists like Peter Staley, Marsha P. Johnson, and Gilbert Baker in his acceptance speech.
Sivan will appear in Boy Erased, the upcoming film adaptation of Garrard Conley’s memoir about his time in a gay conversion camp.
Bloom is out August 31.
