Pop Superstar Sam Smith Announces New Pronouns

On Friday, September 13th, Sam Smith posted via social media to let fans know that they were publicly changing their preferred pronouns to “they/them”. This change comes after years of wondering how to identify.

The singer took to Instagram to announce the emotional transition to embracing their true self.  “After a lifetime of being at war with my gender I’ve decided to embrace myself for who I am, inside and out,” they wrote. “I’m so excited and privileged to be surrounded by people that support me in this decision but I’ve been very nervous about announcing this because I care too much about what people think but fuck it!”

Smith also said that they still have a lot to learn about being gender non-binary, and directed fans toward “activists and leaders of the non binary/trans community” who helped them learn more about their gender expression. “For now I just want to be VISIBLE and open,” they wrote. “If you have questions and are wondering what this all means I’ll try my best to explain but I have also tagged below the human beings who are fighting the good fight everyday.”
