That's where she made the special announcement about the way she chooses to identify.

It comes as no shock that we're living in the era of gender fluidity.

Long gone are the days where there were simply 2 genders - Now, people can identify with up to one-hundred different genders or no gender at all.

More and more people are identifying as gender-neutral...

Or "non-binary," in other terms.

People use the term “non-binary" to describe genders that don’t fall into 1 of the 2 more traditional categories or "binaries" of male or female.

Others can fluctuate, or have no gender, either permanently or some of the time.

Often, people see their pronouns as a massive part of their identity, so in turn, we should all respect the terms that they wish to be identified by...

As the concept of gender gets more fluid, we're seeing a drastic shift in the way people want to identify, and in 2020, we have never been more open about the change.

And as an outcome of this, people are finding the confidence to open up.

The news was very well received.

And other celebrities are now being more open about their pronouns too.
