36 Celebrities Who Use Gender Neutral Pronouns

Gender is a social construct.

Pronouns can be an integral part of a person’s identity, how they feel about themselves, and more. Experimenting and playing around with pronouns to see what best describes the human you are can be a very rewarding experience. Here are 35 celebrities who use pronouns that are different from the binary ones of “she” and “he.”

PS: Not all nonbinary people use gender-neutral pronouns, and not everyone who uses gender-neutral pronouns is nonbinary.
