Not too long ago, news emerged that Demi Lovato had came out as non binary.
The singer, Demi Lovato, made the announcement on Instagram just a few months back.
Taking to Instagram, Lovato wrote:
Every day we wake up, we are given another opportunity and chance to be who we want and wish to be. I’ve spent the majority of my life growing in front of all of you… you’ve seen the good, the bad, and everything in between. Not only has my life been a journey for myself, I was also living for those on the other side of the cameras.
“”Today is a day I’m so happy to share more of my life with you all – 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. Please keep living in your truths and know I am sending so much love your way.
The post concluded:
Over the past year and a half, I’ve been doing some healing and self-reflective work. And through this work I have had the revelation that I identify as non-binary. With that said, I’ll officially be changing my pronouns to they/them. I feel that 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 still am discovering.
Now, Lovato has revealed how their family are adapting to their new pronouns.
Speaking in a recent interview, Lovato said:
You know my family has done an incredible job, actually. I’ve noticed especially my older sister Dallas… I’ve noticed her using ‘them’ and ‘they,’ and it really does warm my heart up that people are trying.
My friends have had a little harder time to get used to it, actually. Just because I think your friends are the ones who you’re more likely to be like, ‘B*tch!'”
I’m like, look, you can still call me ‘b*tch’.
At least they’re adapting!
