Demi Lovato Comes Out as Non-Binary and Officially Changes Pronouns to They/Them
Congrats are in order for Dancing With The Devil singer, Demi Lovato, who revealed, via their podcast 4D with Demi Lovato, that they identify as non-binary, and are changing their pronouns to them/them moving forward.
The announcement came after “a year and a half of healing” and “self-reflective work”, with Lovato calling the experience “a revelation”. They said that this best represents the fluidity they feel in their gender expression.
Not only this, but it allows the singer to feel “most authentic and true” to the person they know they are, and the person they are still discovering.
LGBTQI+ organisations like Stonewall UK, GLAAD and Human Rights Campaign commended the Camp Rock star, congratulating them for stepping into their truth and thanking them for being a fierce advocate for LGBTQ folks everywhere.
In a statement, published on the ABC, Anthony Allen Ramos of GLAAD, said “Demi has always been one of the loudest and proudest advocates for LGBTQ people and issues. In sharing their story today, they will educate countless people around the world and reach other non-binary people with a message of pride.”
The announcement follows news that they consider themselves to be pansexual — which is where you experience attraction towards people regardless of their sex or gender identity — saying on a podcast with Joe Rogan that they’re “part of the alphabet mafia [referring to the LGBTQIA+ community] and proud”.
Lovato also spoke to Glamour in March and hinted at the announcement, saying, “I know who I am and what I am, but I’m just waiting until a specific timeline to come out to the world as what I am. I’m following my healers’ timeline, and I’m using this time to really study and educate myself on my journey and what I’m preparing to do.”
