Troye Sivan is set to be honored at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on Friday, Variety reports.

The singer and actor will be receiving Variety’s Creative Conscience in Film Award, in recognition for his work in Boy Erased, about the harmful effects of gay conversion therapy. Sivan played Gary, a member of the conversion program. He also co-wrote and performed the song “Revelation” for the film.

“Troye’s performance in Boy Erased, along with ‘Revelation,’ the original song he wrote for one of the pivotal scenes in the film, showcases his commitment to LGBTQ activism in both music and film,” Shirley Halperin, Variety’s executive music editor, says.

Troye receive the award at the annual 10 Directors to Watch Brunch, presented by AT&T at the Parker Palm Springs Hotel.
