Sam Smith Does not Want to be called “He” Anymore. Sam Smith asks whether everyone can no longer label him a “he”.
The singer, who already indicated to be non-binary earlier this year, would prefer to be addressed as ‘them’ or ‘them’, Sam says on Friday in a series of candid tweets.
“Today is a good day, so here it goes.
I have decided to change my pronouns into them / their.
After so much of struggling with my gender, I have decided to accept myself as I am, inside and out “said the singer.
“I am happy, and I feel privileged to be surrounded by people who support me in this decision.
I was extremely nervous about announcing this news because I usually am too concerned about what people think of me but fuck it. “
Sam understands that not everyone will immediately accept his wish.
“But please try. I hope you will see me as I see myself now.”
The singer says he is not yet able to talk extensively about what it means to be non-binary.
“But I can’t wait for the day that I am.
For now, I want to be visible and open.
If you have questions or wonder what all this means: I want to explain it as well as possible.”
“I love you. I’m terrified, but now I feel super free.
Be nice,” Sam concludes.
In March, 27-year-old Sam said that ‘them’ had been struggling with ‘their’ identity since ‘their’ youth.
The singer even considered a sex operation.
