The well-renowned American singer Demi Lovato has revealed that their pronouns will be changed to gender-neutral they/them.
Demi Lovato announced on Wednesday that she is nonbinary and is switching her pronouns, telling fans that she made the conscious decision after doing “self-reflective work.”
Lovato announced on Twitter,
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.
Every day we wake up, we are given another opportunity & chance to be who we want & 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, & everything in between. pic.twitter.com/HSBcfmNruo

They chose gender-neutral pronouns because they better reflect the dynamism they feel in their gender identity, according to Lovato.
I’m doing this for those out there that haven’t been able to share who they truly are with their loved ones.
The singer behind hits like Cool for the Summer, Really Don’t Care, and Anyone recently opened up about their mental health and substance abuse issues in a YouTube documentary that tracked their struggle before and after a near-fatal overdose in 2018.
