Since Demi Lovato came out as nonbinary in May, the singer has spoken in-depth about the positive impact their coming out journey has had on their sense of self and self-expression.

The “Sorry Not Sorry” singer revealed in a new interview with The 19th (via Entertainment Tonight) that that while they currently identify as non-binary that could change in the future.
“There might be a time where I identify as trans. I don’t know what this looks like for me. There might be a time where I identify as non-binary and gender-nonconforming my entire life,” Lovato shared.
“Or maybe there’s a period of time when I get older that I identify as a woman, I don’t know what that looks like, but for me, in this moment right now, this is how I identify.”
The “Cool for the Summer” singer, 29, credited ending the engagement to Max Ehrich as allowing them to stand on their “own two feet without needing someone else to validate” them or make them “feel accepted.”
“And when I said goodbye to that relationship, I also said goodbye to everything that was holding me back from being my most authentic self.”
The “Sonny With a Chance” alum came out as pansexual earlier this year and then in May said they were non-binary.
Lovato said they felt they had to conceal who they really were while in a heterosexual relationship with Ehrich.
“I met someone and I got into this straight relationship, and that was great,” they explained, “but that led me to ignoring all the parts of myself that I didn’t think were digestible for my partner at the time, who ended up becoming my fiancé.”
Life is a journey.
