Dvadesetsedmogodišnji muzičar, dobitnik Grammyja, svoju je objavu na Instagramu popratio naslovom “moje zamjenice su oni/njima”.

“Odlučio sam prihvatiti samoga sebe, ono što jesam, unutra i na van. Uzbuđen sam i povlašten što sam okružen ljudima koji me podržavaju u odluci, ali sam vrlo nervozan zbog njezina objavljivanja jer mi je previše stalo do toga što ljudi misle”, napisao je pjevač hita “Stay with me”.

Smithova objava na Instagramu dobila je više od 400.000 lajkova.

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. 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! I understand there will be many mistakes and mis gendering but all I ask is you please please try. I hope you can see me like I see myself now. Thank you. P.s. I am at no stage just yet to eloquently speak at length about what it means to be non binary but I can’t wait for the day that I am. So for now I just want to be VISIBLE and open. 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. These are activists and leaders of the non binary/trans community that have helped me and given me so much clarity and understanding. @tomglitter @munroebergdorf @transnormativity @alokvmenon @katemoross @glamrou @travisalabanza @twyrent @chellaman @jvn @lavernecox @stonewalluk @glaad @humanrightscampaign @mermaidsgender Love you all. I’m scared shitless, but feeling super free right now. Be kind x

Smith je rekao da je prerano da objasni “što to znači biti nebinaran”, no objava dolazi šest mjeseci nakon što je pjevač na društvenim mrežama napisao da nije “ni muško ni žensko” nego da pluta “negdje između”.
