Troy Sivan's Bloom Tour

A Night To Never Forget — Troye Sivan Totally Slayed Me At The Bloom Tour

I cried. I laughed. I danced. I lived.


Never in my life have I ever shed so many tears as I did that night. I was a snotty mess while trying to sing along to the lyrics of Fools. Troye Sivan brought the little bitch out of me.

A red curtain had separated the crowd from the stage, and I thought that was the cheesiest thing ever. But as soon as he came from behind, singing the first words of Seventeen, my body was thrown into a catatonic state of crying. My mind was in denial. I was in the same space with one of my favorite artists ever. I was next to a man whom I have come to love dearly over this past few months. Everything was unbelievable.

My heart was a beating mess overflowing with such colorful and bright emotions. From the very beginning of the concert, I knew it was going to be a night I would always hold dearly with me.

Being able to see the artist with whom I've felt I can relate to created an even deeper connection between his music and me. Troye Sivan is an advocate for the LGBT community, and his songs speak the dark and sad words most of us are not able to formulate due to fear.

His songs that speak of the difficulties of trying to accept who you truly are. His songs that gave a voice to many struggling youths. His songs that encouraged so many people and worked as a crutch for them. His songs that spoke of difficulties I went through. His songs that gave me a voice. His songs that encouraged me and gave me support. He made me feel less alone as I grew up in a world full of hate and judgment.

It was all a dream come true.

However, my night did not only involve me crying my eyes out. After I was sure I wasn't going to cry anymore, my body just decided to be taken over by the lyrics and beats of his songs. Belching each word out, moving my body to every rhythmic beat.

The concert itself even turned into the Abbey — LA's gayest gay club. I've never been there, but I've heard the wild, gay mess that club is. Every gay person I know ravages about it. So, in a couple of words, not only did I see my favorite artist ever, but I also went to my first gay rave. And I couldn't have asked for anything better.

10 TV Shows You Need To Watch On Hulu

Hulu is slept on


I have recently moved to watch shows and movies on Hulu and Netflix. Hulu has a lot of great shows and movies to offer that aren't on Netflix. While Netflix is still great, Hulu is definitely starting to grow on me. Here are some shows that I have watched or have started watching on Hulu that I think are pretty great!

1. 11.22.63

If you love James Franco and Stephen King, you'll love this show. The first episode is a bit long, but all the other episodes are only 45 minutes. The plot line is pretty interesting. I also like that it doesn't tell you everything, it shows it to you and you piece things together.

2. The Act

The fact that this show is based on a true story is just insane. The acting is really great, especially if you watch actual videos of Gypsy, Joey King does a great job.

3. Castle Rock

Another Stephen King masterpiece. This show is riveting and really makes you think about what the truth is in the context of the story, and brings in some ethical questions.

4. Future Man

I've only recently started this but it's pretty interesting and funny.

5. The O.C.

The O.C. (TV Series 2003–2007) - IMDb

This show was great. Sometimes it was a bit annoying, but it is a classic show from the early 2000s. You really become invested in all the characters and your opinion may change on some characters because they grow and develop throughout the show.

6. The Handmaid's Tale

If you've read the book, you should definitely watch the show.

7. Obsession: Dark Desires

I just love true crime stories and this really dives deep into crime stories and the darkest parts of humanity.

8. Intervention

This show can be really sad or frustrating, but I think it's good for people to see the reality of addiction.

9. Smallville

Smallville (2001-2011)

I also started this one very recently and I've always wanted to watch it. It can be cheesy but it's pretty entertaining.

10. Brooklyn Nine-Nine

This is a great show if you want to laugh. I love all of the characters and everything they bring to the table.
