Tipton is one of several performers to come out as non-binary recently. Demi Lovato came out as non-binary last month, announcing their new pronouns of they/them.
“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,” Lovato said on their podcast 4D With Demi Lovato.
The former Disney star added, “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.”
