Demi found by stopping to reflect and simply breathe, they discovered their “masculine energy” matched their “feminine energy.”
They continued: “When I started assessing my spiritually, I realised my masculine energy was just as prominent as my feminine energy. I came to the conclusion, I identify as non-binary and gender non-conforming.”
Sharing their journey is something that the former ‘Sonny With A Chance’ star feels “important” to be open about because of how much they struggled with it initially but felt “really, really great” about after coming out.
They said: “[It was] very important to share with other people because I know there is someone out there dealing with the same thoughts I was having.
“And I just want people out there to know, especially young people who are entering a world where they might not feel secure or scared to come out. I want to show people that it’s OK and it feels really, really great.”
Demi previously explained it had taken 18 months to “have the revelation” they are non-binary.
They said earlier this year: “Over the past year and a half I’ve been doing some healing and self-reflective work and through this work, I’ve had the revelation that I identify as non-binary.
“With that said, I’ll officially be changing my pronouns to they/them. I feel that this best represents the fluidity I feel in my gender expression and allows me to feel most authentic and true to the person I both know I am and am still discovering.”
