Earlier this week, ET also exclusively broke the news that singer-songwriter Troye Sivan, 21, will make history at the awards show as the youngest recipient of the Stephen F. Kolzak Award, which honors those who have made a significant difference in promoting equality and acceptance. Past recipients of the prestigious accolade include Laverne Cox, Ellen DeGeneres, Ruby Rose, Chaz Bono, Melissa Etheridge and Sir Ian McKellen.
"Troye Sivan embodies a generation of LGBTQ youth who are unapologetic, outspoken, and proud to be who they are," GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis said in a statement to ET. "He has quickly become a leading voice of his generation and sends a message of hope and empowerment with every song, music video and social post."
