Demi Lovato has shared why “constantly” having to educate people about ‘they/them’ pronouns was a reason for them going by ‘she/her’ again.
The star came out as non-binary in May 2021 when they announced that they would be using ‘they/them’ pronouns going forward.
They recently updated these to include ‘she/her’ again, though still also goes by ‘they/them’.
“I constantly had to educate people and explain why I identified with those pronouns,” Demi told GQ Hype Spain. “It was absolutely exhausting.”
The ‘Still Alive’ singer added that they “just got tired” of it, though it is “for that very reason I know that it is important to continue spreading the word.”
Demi also stated that they hope to see more gender-neutral spaces available to everyone.
“I face this every day,” they said. “For example, in public toilets. Having to access the women’s bathroom, even though I don’t completely identify with it.”
They continued: “Or it also happens when filling out forms, such as government documents or any other where you have to specify your gender. You only have two options, male and female, and I feel like none of that makes sense to me.”
Demi’s latest album, ‘Holy Fvck’, was released on 19 August and peaked at number seven in both the UK and US.
It was preceded by three singles, one of which, ‘29’, charted on the Billboard Hot 100 at a peak of 96.
