20-year-old pop-polymath Troye Sivan has dropped the video for his new single Youth and as well as revealing that you can always find him in the kitchen at parties, it also contains a pretty clear message to gay teens in the states. Directed by Mailia James of Dum Dum Girls fame, the clip features a cast of boys who like boys, girls who like girls, girls who like boys and so on and so forth (alright, Damon Albarn) as they get up to all sorts of fun at a particularly well-lit house party. At one point, a certain reveller can be seen in a hat emblazoned with the message MAKE AMERICA GAY AGAIN and, if that was not enough, all-round-general-cool-person Amandla Stenberg pops up (getting her tongue pierced no less). Someone get Alessia Cara on the blower - this looks like the sort of party we'd like to be at.
