American singer, Demi Lovato, has finally explained why she stopped using they/them pronouns.

After coming out as non-binary in 2021 and initially stating she would identify with only they/them pronouns, Lavato updated and adapted she/her pronouns again.

She opened up about why she took such a decision in an interview with GQ Spain, which was translated from Spanish to English.

“I constantly had to educate people and explain why I identified with those pronouns. It was absolutely exhausting,” Lovato revealed. “I just got tired. But for that very reason I know that it is important to continue spreading the word.”

In her official social media bios, she went back for the she/her pronouns in addition to they/them in 2022.

The 30-year-old singer disclosed in the latest interview that she is still confident in how she identifies. However, she feels the need for more public spaces to help her and others move around the world more freely.

“I face this every day. For example, in public toilets. Having to access the women’s bathroom, even though I don’t completely identify with it. I would feel more comfortable in a genderless bathroom,” the “Cool For the Summer” singer says. “Or it also happens when filling out forms, such as government documents or any other where you have to specify your gender. You only have two options, male and female, and I feel like none of that makes sense to me. I see myself conditioned to choose a woman because there are no more. I think this has to change. Hopefully with time there will be more options.”

She is also known for her awareness of the injustices felt by members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

“It will be worth it as long as there are people who tell me that I am an inspiration to them or that I have helped them learn more about themselves and feel more comfortable in their skin,” she shares. “That’s the most meaningful thing to me. There are queer couples who have gotten engaged at my concerts and that’s really special.”

Demi Lovato maintained there should be a “safe space” for her and others.

“The safe space that I have created in the industry is proof of the safe space that I have also created in my life,” she tells GQ Spain. “And I think that no matter what sector you are in, you have to be comfortable to evolve. I’ve spent years selecting the right people and I’ve finally found my tribe.”
