In an emotional Twitter thread and Instagram post, singer-songwriter Sam Smith announced Friday that their gender pronouns are they/them. The star previously came out as non-binary earlier this year.
“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 f*** it,” they continued.
After coming out as non-binary in March, Smith previously said they would continue to use he/him pronouns. “Maybe I’m not a man, maybe I’m not a woman, maybe I’m just me,” he said at the time. “And that’s okay.”
