Jacob Bixenman Opens Up About His Relationship With Troye Sivan

Jacob Bixenman is on the cover of Gay Times‘ March 2018 issue, which is out on newsstands now.

Here’s what the 23-year-old model had to say…

On whether his ‘power coupling’ with Troye Sivan is tough: “At times it is, yes, and it was tougher in the beginning of our relationship because it was more of a crash course for me. We’re both people who share ourselves online but need privacy and really value close personal relationships so balancing that line of how much to give away can be interesting. Otherwise our relationship is really easy.”

On being open about his sexuality in his public life: “That relationship is different for everyone, but I do find it personally important to be transparent about my sexuality online. I didn’t have that many personal models of queerness growing up, aside from stereotypical characters on screen. I think that the more we personalize the image of what it means to be LGBTQ the more people will understand.”

On challenging traditional masculinity: “The idea of what a man is or needs to be is so ingrained into culture and it’s easier to be accepted when you’ve assimilated to that. But there are as many ways to be queer as there are queer people. Male femininity threatens the status quo so I think that sharing and celebrating it really makes people confront their own insecurities. It’s a step in the direction towards actual liberation.”
