5 Celebrities Who Identify as Non-Binary or Gender-Fluid
We live in a world where people feel the need to label everything but there is a rising number of celebrities who are changing the game by embracing gender fluidity and challenging norms.
So, what exactly does “non-binary” and “gender fluid” mean? Non-binary also known as “genderqueer,” is a spectrum of gender identities that are not exclusively masculine or feminine- identities that are outside the gender binary while gender fluid means that a person does not identify themselves as having a fixed gender.
Usually, people with gender-fluid identities prefer if people used “they” and “them” when being addressed.
Here are 5 celebs who came out as non-binary:
Janelle Monáe: The thirty-four-year-old singer came out on Twitter after she retweeted a gif of a non-binary character from Cartoon Network’s show, “Steven Universe,” with the caption “#IAmNonBinary” along with a Saturn emoji.
Sam Smith: The “Dancing with a Stranger” singer revealed in an interview with The Sunday Times that they feel “just as much a woman as I am man.” Smith shared on social media a post announcing that they’ve officially decided to change their pronouns.
Jonathan Van Ness: The “Queer Eye” star opened up and said he is non-binary in an interview with “Out Magazine.” The thirty-two-year-old celeb explained that the older he gets, the more he identifies as non-binary.
Ruby Rose: The Batwoman star has always been open about her gender-fluid identity. In 2014, Rose released a short film where she let the world know what she feels like when she wakes up every morning. "I am very gender fluid and feel more like I wake up everyday sort of gender-neutral," she told News Corp Australia. Up to date, Rose says she prefers she/her pronouns for now.
Tommy Dorfman: The “13 Reasons Why” actor told Out Magazine in 2017 that they’ve had many insecurities about being gay in the entertainment industry. In 2019, Dorman wrote an essay for Teen Vogue where he opened about the difficulties that a non-binary person faces when they have to wear gendered clothing.
