26 May Demi Lovato Comes Out as Non-Binary
Popstar Demi Lovato came out as non-binary last week on Instagram.
“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.” Lovato explained. “With that said, I’ll officially be changing my pronouns to they/them.”
However, they said they “will also be accepting if people slip and say her/she.” They understand it might take people a moment to get accustomed to the change.
“I was ignoring my truth, and I was suppressing who I really am in order to please stylists, or team members, or this or that, or even fans that wanted me to be the sexy, feminine pop star in the leotard and look a certain way,” they disclosed.
In the episode, Vaid-Menon also opens up about their experiences as a non-binary public figure.
“We are people who have existed for thousands of years, who actually experience ourselves outside of the idea of man or woman,” Vaid-Menon explained.
They reassured Lovato that this self-discovery “comes from a place of deep joy and healing, not from a place of doubt.”
