Earlier this year, mega pop-star Sam Smith came out as non-binary and today they have taken another brave step toward owning their identity by dropping the he/his pronouns in favor of they/them.
Sam Smith sat with GQ and addressed their identity, “Some days I’ve got my manly side and some days I’ve got my womanly side, but it’s when I’m in the middle of that switch I get really, really depressed and sad,” they explained to GQ. “Because I don’t know who I am or where I am or what I’m doing and I feel very misunderstood by myself. I realised that’s because I don’t fit into either.”
Congratulations to Sam Smith on being able to live in their truth! For more, head over to GQ for the full interview.
