And Troye shared the messages on Twitter.
Troye Sivan's coming-out video is still inspiring teenagers to pluck up the courage to speak openly about their sexuality and gender, 3 years on from when Troye originally posted the video to YouTube.
Last week, Troye fan Evan (@inlovetroye) took to Twitter to share the heart-warming messages from his father as he came out as transgender.
Evan shared the messages on Twitter and captioned the screen grabs with a message thanking Troye, saying "this is because of you"
Troye retweeted the messages on Evan's feed, which obviously caused Evan to have a bit of a meltdown. I mean, who wouldn't tbf?

There was a huge outpouring of support for Evan following the post from Troye's fans and many people from the trans community have reached out with messages to congratulate Evan.
because of my tweet ive met people in the trans community that I otherwise wouldnt have met and im so grateful for that— evan (@inlovetroye) June 3, 2016
How sweet! We hope Troye and stories like Evan's continue to inspire more open discussions about gender and sexuality.
