His name is Ja­cob Bix­en­man, a 23-year-old Amer­i­can model who ap­peared in Gay Times (right) ear­lier this year, where he spilled the beans about dat­ing Troye.

“At times it is tough… tougher in the be­gin­ning of our re­la­tion­ship be­cause it was more of a crash course for me,” Ja­cob told Gay Times. “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.

“I didn’t have that many per­sonal mod­els of queer­ness grow­ing up… I think that the more we per­son­al­ize the im­age of what it means to be LGBTQ the more peo­ple will un­der­stand.”
