When pop superstar Sam Smith made the announcement earlier this year that they identified as non-binary and genderqueer, many fans asked if the star still wanted fans to use the pronouns "he/him." Today, Smith answered their question.
On Friday, Smith took to their Instagram to let fans know that they were publicly changing their preferred pronouns to "they/them" after years of wondering how to identify. "After a lifetime of being at war with my gender I’ve decided to embrace myself for who I am, inside and out," they wrote. "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 fuck it!"
