28-year-old Demi Lovato has come out as non-binary and is changing their pronouns to they/them. Lovato wrote in an Instagram post on Wednesday that they identify as non-binary, or a person whose gender identity does not fit into the binary of male or female. Wrote Lovato: “I am proud to let you know that I identify as non-binary and will officially be changing my pronouns to they/them moving forward. This has come after a lot of healing and self-reflective work. I’m still learning and coming into myself, and I don’t claim to be an expert or a spokesperson. Sharing this with you now opens another level of vulnerability for me. I’m doing this for those out there that haven’t been able to share who they truly are with their loved ones.” Lovato also posted a video, saying in part: “I feel this 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 am still discovering.”
Lovato’s coming out as non-binary follows their discussion about “fluidity” with attraction on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast back in March, where Lovato confirmed at the time they identify as pansexual, or someone who is attracted to all genders. Lovato previously said on Radio Andy that they were still figuring out their sexuality but had told their parents in 2017 that they saw themselves “ending up possibly with a woman.”
Lovato released their seventh studio album, Dancing with the Devil… the Art of Starting Over, in April.
