Former Disney Channel starlet, Demi Lovato, has been open about her journey with both mental health and sexuality over the years.
Lovato came out as non-binary in May 2021 and, at that time, noted that their preferred pronouns were “they/their.” Now, however, Lovato has quietly updated her Instagram profile [below] to note that “they/their/she/hers” are all acceptable pronouns to use.
Lovato has not issued any sort of statement regarding this change, but fans of the “Cool For the Summer” singer took notice. Demi Lovato Throwbacks on Twitter shared details of the update with followers:
she hasn’t explicitly said it via an interview or social media post, however they updated their instagram bio and added she/her pronouns!

Lovato previously shared she is on a “forever gender journey,” telling fans:
“If you misgender me – that’s OK. I accidentally misgender myself sometimes. As long as you keep trying to respect my truth, and as long as I remember my truth, that shift will come naturally. I’m just grateful for your effort in trying to remember what means so much to my healing process.”
