Khan went on to explain that the T-shirts - which you can now buy online, with $10 from each shirt (on sale for $35) going to LGBTQIA+ youth charity Minus18 – have a very significant meaning for him, as he used to spend a great deal of time as a youth at the charity’s social events and workshops, which are organised to give young people a sense of belonging, safety and empowerment.
"There was a space where they threw events that made you feel welcomed, and I feel like that’s really important to support something that really helped me when I was younger," Khanh said of the Minus18 community.
He went on to say that the organisation made “me feel loved, included, empowered and special in a time of my life when I was confused, sad and ashamed of myself.”
Speaking of the T-shirts’ message, Khanh said: "I think it’s a weird time in the world, and if that helps one person, that’s all that really matters.
"It’s just that reminder that things get better, you are loved and there is love for you."
In a recent Instagram post, Khahn told his fans: “ know a lot of you have messaged me about my 'You Are Loved' T-shirts I've been wearing.
“When I decided to come back on the show, I wanted to use it as a way to spread a little bit of positivity and love to the world.
“Life isn't always amazing, sometimes it sucks and I've definitely felt that. What got me through was the love and support from my family, my friends and my community.
“These tees are a global reminder to feel loved by everyone around you. People care just ride the highs and the lows because it's part of the journey,” he said.
