Demi Lovato Comes Out as Non-Binary

Popstar Demi Lovato came out as non-binary last week on Instagram.

Coming Out

In a moving video shared on Instagram, the Grammy-winning singer announced that they were changing .Their pronouns are they/them/theirs, and they identified as non-binary.

“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.”

“I feel 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 am still discovering,” added Demi.

Self-Discovery

The “Confident” singer delved deeper into their self-discovery journey on the very first episode of their brand-new podcast 4D

“It would mean the world if people could start identifying me as they/them,” said Lovato, in conversation with guest Alok Vaid-Menon. Alok is a renowned gender-nonconforming artist.

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.

Additionally, Demi opened up about their near-lethal drug overdose in 2018, noting that it was in part brought about by their struggles to come to terms with their identity.

“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.

Support

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.”
