The 21-year-old South African native (though Australian raised) pop star has become quite the multitalented icon. Sivan is an actor, who's appeared in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" and the "Spud" trilogy. However, he gained major recognition off of his YouTube channel, in 2012, which has now amassed well over 4 million subscribers. In 2014, he decided it was time to treat his fans to his first studio EP, 'Wild," and second in 2015 with "TRXYE" before releasing his debut album, "Blue Neighbourhood," later that December.
Sivan's music can be noted as youthfully dreamy meets pop. Ever since his coming out video, he's been unapologetically proud and lets that be known during his set. Before each show, he posts a note about the history of the LGBTQ community in that city. He goes on to offer ticket upgrades to fans who donate specific items for the organization that he's partnered with. During his stop in Dallas, he revealed that the regular ticket sale proceeds would be going towards the LGBTQ community to help provide a safe place for the youth within it.
