    When I came out as non-binary, I cried because of the intense joy that I felt. Finding the words to tell the world how I see myself after a whole life of searching was ecstasy. I relive that joy every time someone else finds those words too. Celebrating with Demi today💕 https://t.co/0ouelpTGfW

    It doesn't matter if you like Demi Lovato or not, what we're NOT going to do is mock them coming out and question if they're "really" non-binary.

    Demi Lovato came out as non-binary and has changed their pronouns to "they/them" I'm so proud of you @ddlovato 🥺🌈🏳️‍🌈!!!!

    Demi also had a response to anyone who might have negative things to say about their announcement.

    this is what demi lovato said on their podcast about people who are going to think that they are coming out for “attention” !! they are so valid and i’m so proud of them 🥺

    Twitter: @DEMIAFI

    This video is from the first episode of Demi's new podcast, 4D with Demi Lovato. In response to negative comments, they said, "I could leave my career today, I'm still going to identify as nonbinary tomorrow. For the first time, I'm putting my well-being over my career."

    "I know that not everybody is going to love that this is me and this is my truth."

    "I can't shove it down or suppress it any longer, or I'll end up where I did a few years ago and I never want to end up there again," Demi added, referring to their 2018 overdose.

    Consider this yet another reminder that questioning or mocking a person's gender identity is never cool, even if you don't agree with everything they say or do.

    And if this is your first exposure to the term "nonbinary," use this as a learning opportunity. Educate yourself!

    With Demi Lovato coming out today, a lot of cis people are being exposed to the wonderful world of non-binary for the first time. It's probably confusing, and it's okay to just *not* get it at first, so here's some things I wish people understood about being non-binary ⬇️
