The Power of ‘Youth’ Our May 2016 Power Issue cover featured Troye Sivan, and who better to represent the power of the LGBT community in 2016 than someone who made the transition from YouTube personality to mainstream pop artist? Like Power cover stars past, Sivan inhabits a unique space in contemporary LGBT visibility, and his Out interview had the Internet abuzz. While some thought Sivan an “unlikely” cover candidate, his more than 4 million YouTube subscribers can attest that the South African–born Australian singer is plenty recognizable. Sivan’s successful full-length debut album, Blue Neighbourhood, and his single “Youth” (which recently climbed the Billboard Hot 100) prove that he’s got stamina, and we concur with Huffington Post in saluting the young musician for “quickly establishing himself as a queer icon for the millennial…

“Sometimes your authentic self requires you to wear a pink wig and lip-synch to Mariah Carey.” THE FIRST SENTENCE OF Drag Teen, Jeffery Self’s debut young-adult novel, lays out the book’s mission loud and clear: “This isn’t one of those stories about a heartwarming journey toward accepting my cursed homosexual identity,” explains protagonist JT Barnett, a 17-year-old who lives with his parents in Clearwater, Florida, but has aspirations to more—even though no one in his family has ever left the state or gone to college. “No,” he continues. “First of all, being gay is far from a curse. It’s more like an extra order of fries at Wendy’s because the lady in the window isn’t paying attention while she fills your bag. It’s awesome.” Just like the modern teen, queer YA literature…

1. B.D. WONG… …PLAYING TRANS (AND BADASS) IN TV’S HIT CYBER-THRILLER MR. ROBOT “I was incredibly nervous,” says B.D.

Still, that did nothing to assuage his anxiety about portraying the mysterious Whiterose, who returns for Robot’ second season in July. MICHAEL MARTIN You were anxious about playing trans, but you received such acclaim for playing another gender before. When you get an offer to do a TV show, you don’t always know where the producers are coming from. I said,…
