In an emotional Instagram post, singer-songwriter, Sam Smith announced a change in gender pronouns to they/them. The star previously came out as non-binary earlier this year.
At the time, Sam told Jameela Jamil, “You are a mixture of all different things. You are your own special creation…I’m not male or female, I think I flow somewhere in between. It’s all on the spectrum.”
Sam has finally made the decision about changing pronouns and finally fully embracing who Sam Smith is.
See the Instagram post 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**k 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 but I have also tagged below the human beings who are fighting the good fight everyday. These are activists and leaders of the non binary/trans community that have helped me and given me so much clarity and understanding.
