One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

I was introduced to Troye Sivan from the movie Boy Erased. He plays a minor but important character in the film, and this song--his song--soars during a beautiful scene. Just watching this video makes me weepy.
“Revelation” has been nominated for a Golden Globe award, and Lucas Hedges for best actor Golden Globe for his role in Boy Erased. (I predict Oscars as well, and rightly so.)
Troye Sivan is a major singer, songwriter, performer, and YouTube star from Australia. He is so wonderful, I’m looking forward to hearing from him and watching his career over time.
Please feel free to write on the specific topic addressed in this video, but it is certainly not required. As you like, write more generally about revelation, liberation, coming out, freedom, love, youth, whatever--the prompt is wide-open as always. This is a song to sit back and breathe in--and see what comes up for you.
