Talking about their reasons for sharing their identity with the world, Lovato revealed it took “a year and half of exploration” to reach that point but now they have it feels “weird” to be called “she or her.”

“After a year-and-a-half of exploration, I realized it was time to let the world know that It feels weird to me when I get called a ‘she’ or a ‘her’, and I understand that people might have a hard time adjusting to it because it is something new, but I want to encourage people to keep trying,” they said.

“I’m still, every day, stepping more and more into the identity that feels right to me, which is my pronouns being ‘they/them.'”

Opening up about the response they have received from family and friends, the Disney star explained that it “does warm my heart up that people are trying.”

“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,” Lovato said.

Though they did admit their friends “have had a little harder time to get used to it” because “your friends are the ones who you’re more likely to be like, ‘B***ch!'”
