This Is How Demi Lovato Explains Being Nonbinary to People

Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato is opening up even more about what being nonbinary means to them.

The Dancing with the Devil singer sat down with Today’s Hoda Kotb to discuss their new show Unidentified with Demi Lovato, about searching for extraterrestrial life, and also dished on what being nonbinary means to them specifically.

“I came out as nonbinary in May, and since then it’s just felt like my truth has been living my life as loudly as possible without a care in the world,” Lovato said to Kotb. When the Today host asked them to expand on that, they were happy to.

“Her is now a they. And the way I explain being nonbinary to people, or gender nonconforming, is for me personally, i can’t speak to everyone in their experience,” Lovato said.

They said that they came to the realization that they are equally masculine and feminine. “My masculine and feminine energy are equal, so much so that I may be wearing a dress and heels right now, but I don’t identify as just a woman or just a man, I identify as both.”

They also know that it’s a big change, and that some people might take longer to understand. “I do have a lot of grace and a lot of understanding for people that maybe misuse my pronouns,” they confessed. “I still mess up sometimes, and say ‘oh I can’t wait to be an aunt one day’ and I’m like, ‘wait, what word do I use?’ I think for that one we’re gonna use ‘auncle.’”

Lovato also talked dating as a nonbinary person, and how their pansexuality opens them up to a lot of opportunities. “I identify as pansexual, I”m attracted to human beings, and it doesn’t matter what you identify as,” the 29-year-old singer said. “I just don’t hold myself back from sharing my love with anybody.”

They also talked about their upcoming UFO show, Unidentified with Demi Lovato, streaming now on Peacock, which Lovato says is about opening yourself up to possibilities that our world is bigger than we think.

Most importantly, Lovato shared that they are doing well. “I would say I’m pretty happy. I think happiness is not a constant state of being,” they said. “I think I’m very content and I have moments of happiness and moments of bliss and joy that are so fulfilling.”
