Aussie Actor Hugh Sheridan Comes Out As A 'Non-Binary Bisexual Human'

Aussie Actor Hugh Sheridan Comes Out As A 'Non-Binary Bisexual Human'

Australian actor Hugh Sheridan has come out as non-binary.

The Packed to the Rafters star shocked the country when they revealed they were bisexual last year and now they have updated their pronouns to reflect their gender identity.

After appearing on the cover of DNA Magazine, Hugh wanted to take advantage of Pride month to make the big announcement.

"I AM still a human (non binary/bi/me/Hughman) but I'm in a monogamous relationship with another human, who I love," Sheridan wrote.

"I don't accept a label cause it limits me... if you want it; take it. I chose zero labels for no other reason except the exclusion, limitations, separation, I believe are all one, deeeeep down. &...who knows? Why chose?!!

"Be you. Be true. Be free: to BE, to JUST BE... you, a human, same as me."

Sheridan was on the front cover of the magazine with their fiancé, Kurt Roberts. The pair got engaged in March earlier this year when Hugh proposed during their performance at the Adelaide Fringe Festival.

Speaking to DNA, Hugh explained how special it was to do it during the performance.

"I went out and bought a ring and flew his family to be seated in the audience on the night. He had no idea. It was a really amazing moment," Sheridan said.

They also highlighted how they don't mind being labelled gay now that they're marrying a man.

Sheridan told Stellar Magazine last year how they were told to hide their sexuality if they wanted to make it as an actor.

"I was told that if I was anything but straight I'd never find work, and that I needed to hide my new-found love," Hugh said. "To add to the confusion, the two mentors who told me this were openly gay themselves; they were earnestly trying to protect me and did indeed have my best interests at heart. That was just the reality."

But, now that they've come out and been accepted across Australia, they don't mind the labels other people put on them.

Sheridan told DNA: "Now I'm marrying a guy you can call me gay. Whatever! The point is, we're all human and, in my case, labelling put me into a box that felt like a cell."
