Sam Smith Comes Out As Non-Binary; Asks To Be Called “They/Them”

Sam Smith has long been a bold lyricist and now the British belter is extending said boldness into the public sphere.

For, the 27-year-old has announced that they identify as a non-binary gender and wants to be referred to as such. Hence, instead of being “he/him” it’ll be “they/them.”

Smith’s words below…

Today is a good day so here goes. I’ve decided I am changing my pronouns to THEY/THEM after a lifetime of being at war with my gender I’ve decided to embrace myself for who I am, inside and out…

I’m so excited and privileged to be surrounded by people that support me in this decision but I’ve been very nervous about announcing this because I care too much about what people think but f*ck it!

I understand there will be many mistakes and mis gendering but all I ask is you please please try. I hope you can see me like I see myself now. Thank you.

P.s. I am at no stage just yet to eloquently speak at length about what it means to be non binary but I can’t wait for the day that I am. So for now I just want to be VISIBLE and open. If you have questions and are wondering what this all means I’ll try my best to explain…

These are activists and leaders of the non binary/trans community that have helped me and given me so much clarity and understanding.@TomGlitter @MunroeBergdorf@travisalabanza, @alokvmenon@katemoross@Glamrou @jvn @Lavernecox@stonewalluk @glaad @Mermaids_Gender @HRCLove you all. I’m scared sh*tless, but feeling super free right now. Be kind x
