Demi Lovato Comes Out As Non-Binary And Reveals They/Them Pronouns

Demi Lovato has revealed themself to be non-binary and now uses they/them pronouns.

The singer has released a statement that dives into how coming to this conclusion best reflects 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 still am discovering'.

The 'Dancing With The Devil' artist told their followers on Instagram: "Every day we wake up, we are given another opportunity and chance to be who we want and wish to be.

"I've spent the majority of my life growing in front of all of you... you've seen the good, the bad, and everything in between.

"Not only has my life been a journey for myself, I was also living for those on the other side of the cameras."

Demi Lovato has slowly been speaking out about their gender and sexual identity. They mentioned how intense it was being a member of the Disney family and sticking to the company's very traditional character arcs of chastity, heterosexuality and upholding a clean image.

The 28-year-old added in their statement: "Today is a day I'm so happy to share more of my life with you all - I am proud to let you know that I identify as non-binary and will officially be changing my pronouns to they/them moving forward.

"This has come after a lot of healing and self-reflective work. I'm still learning and coming into myself, and I don't claim to be an expert or a spokesperson.

"Sharing this with you now opens another level of vulnerability for me. I'm doing this for those out there that haven't been able to share who they truly are with their loved ones.

"Please keep living in your truths and know I am sending so much love your way."

Demi said this realisation of being non-binary was a year and a half long process that was fully grasped during 'some healing and self-reflective work'. The singer said 'through this work I have had the revelation that I identify as non-binary'.

"With that said, I'll officially be changing my pronouns to they/them. I feel that 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 still am discovering," they said.

"I want to make it clear that I am still learning and coming into myself. I don't claim to be an expert or a spokesperson".

The singer spoke to Glamour in March about embracing their queerness as they got older. Demi was engaged to a man and when that relationship broke down, they thought it was a massive issue.

However, they also saw it as a sign 'that I could live my truth'.

Demi said: "I hooked up with a girl and was like, 'I like this a lot more.' It felt better. It felt right. Some of the guys I was hanging out with - when it would come time to be sexual or intimate, I would have this kind of visceral reaction.

"Like, 'I just don't want to put my mouth there.' It wasn't even based on the person it was with.

"I just found myself really appreciating the friendships of those people more than the romance, and I didn't want the romance from anybody of the opposite sex."

The singer has had an intense few years after suffering an overdose in 2018, where they were 'left for dead' and horrifically assaulted by their heroin dealer.

They have been working on their sobriety ever since - a journey they explore in new YouTube documentary, Dancing with the Devil.
