Sasha Geffen of Pitchfork wrote Sivan isn't afraid to tackle sexuality on his upcoming album "Bloom":

Troye Sivan belongs to a growing crop of young pop artists, like Kehlani and Tove Lo, who are unafraid to be candid about their queer sexuality. His 2015 “Blue Neighborhood” video trilogy offered a moving portrait of two boys falling in love, and didn't shy away from depicting the sensual aspects of their relationship. Pop music has a long history of encoding queer themes in music coy enough to be palatable to straight audiences, but Sivan has come of age in an era when being direct about your sexuality won’t blacklist your music from the Top 40.

Years & Years' latest album "Palo Santo" is well received. Kat Smith of Red Brick wrote that the group outdid themselves compared to their first album.

The long awaited second Years & Years album has finally arrived. I doubted their ability to match their debut but they have soared above it, with the three-year wait being worth every second.
The group also got candid about sexuality and mental health on the new album. 

Alexander’s sexuality is unapologetic, which feels even more powerful against the religious imagery. Often speaking openly about being gay as well as his struggles with mental health, Palo Santo doesn’t see him hiding behind a chart-topper but instead using it as a means of expression. The singles ‘If You’re Over Me’ and ‘All For You’, slot right in to their peers on the charts, proving the band’s unmistakeable ability to project Olly Alexander’s private experience onto a melody with universal appeal.
