Christmas is the time of year to celebrate and indulge in food, fun and a little bit of extra Christmas cheer. As is the Eikon tradition we thought it only fair to follow traditions of Christmas’ past and give our readers some extra eye candy before the big day arrives.

Welcome to Eikon’s 12 Gays of Christmas.

Gay 9 – Troye Sivan

Troye Sivan grew another year older in 2016, but is still the baby of our 12 Gays of Christmas, coming in at number 9.

It was another busy year for the Perth boy, releasing new music, on top of the huge releases he made in 2015 and he also toured extensively.

He made some massive inroads into the American market, was spotted on nearly every tonight show, won himself a GLAAD award and won two ARIA awards for Best Video and Song of the Year with his single Youth.

In love, it was the year that the rumoured love story between Sivan and fellow YouTuber Conor Franta fell apart, splitting in half the gay youtube community.

But Sivan seems to have fallen on his feet now with a new beau, model Jacob Bixenman, and plenty more gigs to keep him occupied.

Apart from being a musical genius is still genuine and transparent with his fan base and this will go a long way to seeing his star continue to rise next year.

Merry Christmas Troye, Jacob and to all of your family.
