Sam Smith Comes Out As Gender-Nonbinary

"I feel just as much woman as I am man.”

Sam Smith is the latest celebrity to come out as genderqueer, Attitude reports.

In a new interview with The Sunday Times, Smith replied “No” when asked if he feels like a cisgender man. “I don’t know what the title would be, but I feel just as much woman as I am man,” he elaborated.

The 25-year-old singer-songwriter also discusses his love of dressing in drag, revealing that he hits up the Australian drag shop House of Priscilla whenever he’s in Sydney. “Oh, my god, I just buy everything—heels, dresses,” he says. “We have a great time.”

“People don’t know this, but when I was 17, I remember becoming obsessed with Boy George and Marilyn,” Smith continues. “There was one moment in my life when I didn’t own a piece of male clothing, really.”

“I would wear full makeup every day at school—eyelashes, leggings with Dr Martens and huge fur coats, for two and a half years. I got teased a lot for it. But there were also people respecting me for walking around like that in my school.”

Later, while working in a bar in London, Smith was attacked and punched in the chest, “obviously just because of the way I looked,” he says. “But that never bothered me, because I had this barricade up.”

The “Too Good at Goodbyes” singer is rumored to be dating 13 Reasons Why actor Brandon Flynn, who came out in a recent Instagram post.

Three years since his Grammy-winning debut, Smith’s sophomore album, The Thrill of It All, is scheduled to drop November 3. His North American arena tour kicks off June 18, 2018.
