Gender, like sexuality, is a spectrum — and many people land somewhere in-between, meaning they don’t identify as neither male nor female.

As the terms non-binary and gender-fluid become more accepted, people (including celebrities!) are feeling more comfortable with owning who they are and proudly living their truth.

Many non-binary individuals use they/them pronouns, while others use pronouns that correlate with their assigned gender at birth (he/she), and others choose to live with no labels at all.

Celebs have been at the forefront of visibility, especially when it comes to the LGBTQ+ community, and most recently A-listers such as Sam Smith and Demi Lovato have come out as non-binary, breaking the gender mold.

Scroll through the gallery below to see more celebs who identify as gender-fluid or non-binary.

The pop icon announced earlier this month that they are non-binary and their pronouns are they/them. "Living in the fourth dimension means living consciously in both time and space but for me it means having conversations that transcend the typical discourse. I wanna take this moment to share something very personal with you," Lovato said in a clip from their "4D with Demi Lovato" podcast on Wednesday, May 19.

They explained, "Over the past year and a half, I have been doing some healing and self-reflective work and through this work I've had the revelation that I identify as non-binary."

In January 2020, Monáe made headlines after retweeting a hashtag that read “#IAmNonbinary.” In an interview with Variety, the singer, who is openly pansexual, cleared up some of the confusion around her gender identity.

“You know, in the same way when Prince said, 'I’m not a woman/ I’m not a man/ I’m something that you’ll never understand' in the song 'I Would Die 4 U' — that resonated with me,” she said at the time. “I feel my feminine, I feel my masculine, I feel energy that I can’t really explain.”

In an interview with TIME magazine in 2015, the pop star stated she doesn’t care for the labels boy or girl and identifies as gender fluid, even though that's not perfect either. "I'm just equal," she said at the time. "I'm just even. It has nothing to do with any parts of me or how I dress or how I look. It's literally just how I feel."

Cyrus has been sexually open and androgynous for years, she said, and was the person in Nashville growing up that other sexually curious teenage girls would go to: "They all wanted to experiment. I was always the one."
