Demi Lovato Comes Out as Non-Binary
In a heartfelt video post, singer/songwriter Demi Lovato has come out as non-binary. From now on, the official Demi Lovato pronouns are now they/them. They shared the news on their Instagram, wanting to shed light into the seriousness of recognizing a person through their chosen pronouns.
They shared that this change helps them feel their most genuine self
“I want to take this moment to share something very personal with you. The past year and a half, I’ve been doing some healing and self-reflective work. And through this work, I’ve had this revelation that I identify as nonbinary. With that said, I’ll officially be changing my pronouns to they/them.”
Demi Lovato went on to add that this change and transformation best represents the fluidity they feel about their gender. They also expressed that this change makes them feel the most authentic.
The two-time Grammy Award nominee has been in the spotlight ever since their younger years. They hit the stardom early when first coming on to the screen on Disney Channel and later hit the mega spotlight as a breakout singer.
Lovato was seen recently opening up about their addiction and overdose during a 4-part documentary called “Dancing With the Devil” which came to the limelight back in March. They also released a song with the same name and the music video shows the night of their overdose.
The singer made the announcement in parallel with the release of their podcast 4D with Demi Lovato. Author and performer, Alok Vaid-Menon, was part of the first episode and had a very heart-warming conversation with Lovato.
The announcement now confirms that the official Demi Lovato pronouns are going to be they/them.
Demi Lovato joins a long list of celebrities that have come out as non-binary
However, this is not something new that has happened in the entertainment industry. Other stars that have previously come out non-binary includes, Jonathan Van Ness, Amandla Stenberg, Indya Moore, and Nico Tortorella.
Grammy award winner, singer, Sam Smith came out as non-binary and genderqueer back in 2019 and a few months later shared the pronouns “they/them”. At that time Smith declared it a life time battle with their gender and was very pleased to make the change.
It has been a very similar journey for Lovato who came out openly for the very first time during their appearance in Dancing with the Devil documentary. From their over-dose experience of 2018 to now coming out as non-binary, has been an immense journey to say the least.
