Demi Lovato opens up about how living their truth as a non-binary person has made their music better and more authentic. But they once worried about the negative impact on their career if they didn't have a certain "super sexy hyper-feminine pop star" look.
The Dancing With the Devil artist spoke with professional boxer Patricio Manuel, who made history in 2018 by becoming the first transgender boxer to fight professionally in the U.S., on Wednesday's (June 9) episode of the 4D With Demi Lovato podcast.
"I knew who I was without anyone telling me," Manuel said about his "odyssey of gender," recalling going from an all-girls school back to a co-ed school and not knowing how to interact with boys. He said his discovery of boxing led him to think, "OK, maybe if I can't become a man, I'll be comfortable with being masculine."
