Singer Sam Smith Is Now "They/Them"

On Friday on Instagram, Sam Smith announced a big change.

According to Business Insider, the British singer, who identifies as nonbinary, wants to be referred to as "they/them." This is the preferred pronouns they want people to use when talking about them.

Smith wrote "After a lifetime of being at war with my gender, I've decided to embrace myself for who I am." They acknowledged that there will be "many mistakes and mis-gendering" but asked fans for kindness and to "please please try." Smith admitted to being nervous about the announcement, but added, "I hope you can see me like I see myself now." Smith encouraged those with questions to contact "activists and leaders of the nonbinary/trans community" that they tagged in the post.
