Demi Lovato Comes Out as Non-Binary, Changes Pronouns to "They/Them"
The singer and actor shared the news on their new podcast, 4D with Demi Lovato.
Demi Lovato has come out as non-binary and is now using they/them pronouns.
The singer and actor made the announcement in the latest episode of their new podcast, 4D with Demi Lovato. "Over the past year and a half I've been doing some healing and self-reflective work," they explained. "And through this work, I've had the revelation that I identify as nonbinary."
"It would mean the world if people could start identifying me as they/them," Lovato added. "I know that being in my position, it's going to take a while for people to get used to. I just want them to be making the effort. I think it's important because I want to use these pronouns that feel right to me. I also just don't want people to be so afraid of messing up that they don't try to use them."
Lovato continued to say that using they/them pronouns "best represents the fluidity I feel in my gender expression and allows me to feel most authentic and true to the person I both know I am and still am discovering." Listen to the episode below.
