Sam Smith Wants To Be Referred To As 'They' After Coming Out As Non-Binary

The singer would like to be referred to as ‘they’ or ‘them’ going forward…
 
Sam Smith would like to be referred to as ‘they’ instead of ‘he’, six months after coming out as non-binary.
 
By way of illustration of the 27-year-old singer’s preference, Smith thanked Hits Radio presenter James Barr for using ‘they’ on Twitter.
 
“Just interviewed @samsmith and they sounded so happy and free and more themselves than ever,” Barr tweeted. “It’s made me feel like the world is a good place again.”
 
Smith replied: “You’re one of the first people to use these pronouns with me. Thank you. That feels really beautiful.”
 

 
Shortly after the Twitter exchange, Smith sent out another message: “Today is a good day so here goes. I’ve decided I am changing my pronouns to THEY/THEM ❤ after a lifetime of being at war with my gender I’ve decided to embrace myself for who I am, inside and out…”
 

Earlier this year, during an interview with Jameela Jamil on Instagram TV, Smith revealed they don’t identify as exclusively masculine or feminine‍ and now identify as non-binary.
 
“When I saw the word ‘non-binary’, ‘genderqueer’, and I read into it, and I heard these people speaking I was like, ‘F***, that is me’,” they told the presenter.
 
“That’s how I take it – I am not male or female. I think I float somewhere in between – it’s all on the spectrum.”
