AceShowbiz - Demi Lovato is still adapting to their new pronoun. Nearly two months after coming out as non-binary, the "What Other People Say" singer admitted that they misgendered themselves sometimes because changing pronouns is such a "huge transation" for them.
The 28-year-old musician made the honest confession via Instagram ahead of the International Nonbinary People's Day. "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," they first penned.
"As long as you keep trying to respect my truth, and as long as I remember my truth, the Shift will come naturally," the ex-fiancee of Max Ehrich added in the Tuesday, July 13 post. "I'm just grateful for your effort in trying to remember what means so much to my healing process."
In the accompanying message, Demi explained, "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." They continued, "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."
Demi revealed their gender identity in May. "Today is a day I'm so happy to share more of my life with you all - I am proud to let you know that I identify as non-binary and will officially be changing my pronouns to they/them moving forward," they declared on Instagram at that time.
"This has come after a lot of healing and self-reflective work. I'm still learning and coming into myself, and I don't claim to be an expert or a spokesperson," they further noted. "Sharing this with you now opens another level of vulnerability for me. I'm doing this for those out there that haven't been able to share who they truly are with their loved ones. Please keep living in your truths and know I am sending so much love your way."
