Singer Demi Lovato shares truth about their gender journey

Demi Lovato has spoken out about their experience of exploring their gender. Earlier this year, the 29-year-old singer posted a video on social media announcing that they had been re-examining their gender identity and would be using they/them pronouns from now on.

This week, during an appearance at the 19th, Represents Summit, the star said they are so much more “than the binary of man and woman.”

“Being non-binary, what that means is that I’m so much more than the binary of man and woman. And that we are all so much more if we allow ourselves the ability to look within ourselves and challenge that binary that we’ve grown up living in,” they said.

They added: “I was very nervous in the beginning to come out as non-binary because I didn’t want people to think it was inauthentic. I just wanted people to see what comes out as non-binary meant to my healing process.”
