Across two hugely successful albums to date\, the singer\, actor\, and cultural vanguard has earned 5 Brit Award nominations\, sold-out numerous global tours\, and played triumphant homecoming shows at London’s O2 and Wembley Arena.\n[nbsp]\nAlong the way\, Olly has also become a fearless\, once-in-a-generation voice on important discussions around mental health\, and issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community. This has been marked by a number of standout moments\, ranging from Alexander's defiant speeches at Glastonbury in 2016 in the wake of events in Orlando to his BBC Documentary ‘Olly Alexander: Growing Up Gay’\, plus the dizzyingly creative world around 'Palo Santo' (a record that arrived with an ambitious short film starring Judi Dench and Ben Whishaw).\n[nbsp]\nIn 2021 Olly led the cast of critically acclaimed and huge hit drama ‘It’s A Sin’ (Channel 4/HBO Max). The show broke records on All 4 since its premiere\, with over 18 million views to date (the platform’s biggest ever instant box-set) and received an incredible reception from fans and critics alike. Following the show’s broadcast\, the Terrence Higgins Trust reported a four-fold increase in HIV Testing Week stats from previous years.\n[nbsp]\nYears [&] Years push boundaries by challenging notions of identity and sexuality in a way that is new to pop music - and totally Olly Alexander’s own.
