28-year-old ‘Cool for the Summer’ singer Demi Lovato is opening up about being misgendered during Non-Binary Awareness Week!
Lovato currently identifies as ‘non-binary’ and so she goes by the pronouns they/them, and just revealed that she understands when people make a mistake once in a while but says it’s important that people try. In a post on Instagram, Lovato wrote: “I felt the need to post this because I often find that the change in pronouns can be confusing for some, and difficult to remember for others. It’s all about your intention. It’s important to me that you try, but if you make a mistake, it’s okay 😊🙏🏼💞 remember that I love you, and to keep going 🤟🏼☮️💗 #nonbinaryawarenessweek.”
She continued: “If you misgender me – That’s okay 🙏🏼 I accidentally misgender myself sometimes! It’s a huge transition to change the pronouns I’ve used for myself my entire life. And it’s difficult to remember sometimes! As long as you keep trying to respect my truth, and as long as I remember my truth, the shift will come naturally 💞I’m just grateful for your effort in trying to remember what means so much to my healing process 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼” Take a look below and let us know whether you’ve ever made a mistake when gendering Demi Lovato:
