Troye Sivan says he’s still not totally comfortable “being effeminate”

“I have to get comfortable with the fact that I am kind of effeminate sometimes–or really effeminate sometimes. That I want to paint my nails.

Overcoming all those stupid rules that society embeds in you as a kid about gender and sexuality is a conscious task.
