September 16, 2019



Grammy and Oscar winner Sam Smith announced a pronoun change on Friday. “Today is a good day so here goes. I’ve decided I am changing my pronouns to THEY/THEM,” the 27-year-old singer wrote on Twitter and Instagram. “After a lifetime of being at war with my gender I’ve decided to embrace myself for who I am, inside and out.” Smith added that they’ve been “very nervous” about the announcement because they “care too much about what people think” but finally decided to go for it. “Love you all,” Smith continued, adding they’re “feeling super free right now. Be kind."
