Sam Smith Ingin Dirinya Dipanggil Dengan Sebutan Jamak “They / Them” 

Setelah coming out sebagai seseorang tanpa gender, sang superstar asal Inggris, mengganti penyebutan dirinya dalam sebutan jamak, yaitu “they / them” (mereka, dalam bahasa Indonesia).

Lewat media sosialnya, Sam Smith (27) mengunggah penyebutan tersebut dengan caption yang emosional. Tak lupa, ia menyebutkan beberapa nama aktivis yang membantunya dan memberikan pencerahan terhadap status barunya tersebut.

Sam pertama kali mengidentifikasi dirinya sebagai seseorang tanpa gender lewat wawancaranya dengan Jameela Jamil dalam episode pertama seri wawancara berbasis Instagram milik aktris tersebut yang berjudul “I Weigh Interviews”.

Today is a good day so here goes. I’ve decided I am changing my pronouns to THEY/THEM ? after a lifetime of being at war with my gender I’ve decided to embrace myself for who I am, inside and out. I’m so excited and privileged to be surrounded by people that support me in this decision but I’ve been very nervous about announcing this because I care too much about what people think but fuck it! I understand there will be many mistakes and mis gendering but all I ask is you please please try. I hope you can see me like I see myself now. Thank you. P.s. I am at no stage just yet to eloquently speak at length about what it means to be non binary but I can’t wait for the day that I am. So for now I just want to be VISIBLE and open. If you have questions and are wondering what this all means I’ll try my best to explain but I have also tagged below the human beings who are fighting the good fight everyday. These are activists and leaders of the non binary/trans community that have helped me and given me so much clarity and understanding. @tomglitter @munroebergdorf @transnormativity @alokvmenon @katemoross @glamrou @travisalabanza @twyrent @chellaman @jvn @lavernecox @stonewalluk @glaad @humanrightscampaign @mermaidsgender Love you all. I’m scared shitless, but feeling super free right now. Be kind x
