Going forward, when you refer to musician Demi Lovato, be sure you use gender neutral pronouns. The singer has officially changed their pronouns to “they” and “them.” In a video on Twitter and through a series of tweet, they announced they are non-binary.

If you find yourself wondering what non-binary means, it basically means that they do not identify as a man or a woman. Instead, non-binary people may identify as a mix of male and female or not feel that either gender fits who they are.

In Lovato’s video, they explained, “I feel that this best represents the fluidity I feel in my gender expression, and allows me to feel most authentic and true to the person I both know I am and still am discovering.”

Lovato followed up their video with a series of tweets that continues to explain their truth.

If you think using “they” and “them” for one person sounds like bad grammar, you’re not alone; however, “they” and “them” is appropriate in this case since they are gender neutral pronouns.

Does Lovato’s announcement surprise you at all? Do you know anyone who identifies as non-binary?
