As you can see, supporting #IAmNonBinary trend, they basically confirmed their gender or lack of. Previously, it was in 2018 when Janelle Monae said it a ruthless way that she considers herself to be a “free-a** mother****”.

Basically, the star once claiming to be pansexual is now non-binary. She also said:
“I want young girls, young boys, nonbinary, gay, straight, queer people who are having a hard time dealing with their sexuality, dealing with feeling ostracized or bullied for just being their unique selves, to know that I see you.”

Some have congratulated the singer on facing the truth and being a light for others. Whereas, others have said that Monae has become an inspiration to them and stood as an example for them in their lives.
