Sam Smith Now Prefers the Pronoun They

The singer is said to have asked family and friends to make the change, as they thanked Hits Radio presenter James Barr on Twitter for referring to the star as ‘they’, as per The Sun.

They came out as non-binary, a little over 6 months ago.

In an  interview with British GQ, Sam recently detailed their experience with sexuality, explaining how ‘not fitting in’ can make them feel ‘really depressed and sad.’

The singer also recalled ‘violent and scary’ experiences within the gay community shortly after moving to London, admitting they were forced to have therapy to come to terms with the ‘traumatic’ encounters.

Explaining the decision to publicly come out as non-binary, Sam said: “Ever since I was a little boy, ever since I was a little human, I didn’t feel comfortable being a man really. I never really did.

Some days I’ve got my manly side and some days I’ve got my womanly side, but it’s when I’m in the middle of that switch that I get really, really depressed and sad. Because I don’t know who I am or where I am or what I’m doing, and I feel very misunderstood by myself. I realised that’s because I don’t fit into either.

I was with my mum last night and she said something so beautiful: ‘I’m so relieved that you and me and your whole family have a way to explain this, because it’s also been eating me up your whole life.’

Because my mum could see it and that it was a torture going on in my mind.”
