Grammy-nominated pop singer and passionate LGBTQ+ activist Demi Lovato is opening up about their gender identity. 

In a series of tweets posted earlier today, the 28-year-old singer-songwriter talked openly about their journey with their gender, identifying as nonbinary, and how they now use they/them pronouns. 

"Every day we wake up, we are given another opportunity and chance to be who we want and wish to be. I’ve spent the majority of my life growing in front of all of you...you’ve seen the good, the bad, and everything in between," Demi, who has been living in the public spotlight for years now ever since they rose to fame after starring in 2008's Camp Rock, wrote. "Not only has my life been a journey for myself, I was also living for those on the other side of the cameras."

They continued: 

"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 nonbinary and will officially be changing my pronouns to they/them moving forward."

"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. Sharing this with you now opens another level of vulnerability for me," they shared. "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."

This isn't the first time Demi has shared parts of their identity with the world. Just earlier this year, they came out as pansexual during an interview with Joe Rogan on his podcast, the Joe Rogan Experience.

"I was engaged to a man last year," Lovato told Rogan when asked about their prior engagement to actor Max Ehrich and whether or not they want to have children in the future. "I totally thought I'd be married, maybe pregnant by now. And that's not the case."

They continued: 

"I also don't know if I'm going to end up with a guy, so I can't really see myself maybe getting pregnant. I'm so fluid now — and a part of the reason why I am so fluid is because I was super closeted off."

"You mean sexually fluid?" Rogan asks. "You like girls? You like boys?"

"Yeah, anything, really" Lovato responded.

"What do they call that? Like pansexual or something like that?" Rogan asked.

"Yeah, pansexual," Lovato confirmed.

Congrats on continuing to live your truth, Demi! We love and appreciate you for it!
