Sam Smith Opens Up About Being Non-Binary: 'I Am Not Male or Female'

During the interview, Jameela asked what “non-binary, genderqueer” identity means to Sam.

“You do not identify in a gender. You are just you…you are your own special creation. That is how I take it. I am not male or female. I think I float somewhere in between — somewhat on the spectrum,” Sam said.

“I’ve always had a bit of a war in my body and my mind…I do think like a woman in my head at times,” Sam said. “I’ve sometimes sat there and questioned, do I want a sex change? It’s something I still think about, but I don’t think it is.”

“I’ve always been very free in terms of thinking about sexuality. I’ve tried to change that into my thoughts on gender…when I move, when I have sex with men, it’s very feminine. I’m feminine in many ways — and I’ve resented that.”

    Is he a Tamale?

  • Casey C

    he’s isn’t a woman, so how does he know he ‘thinks like a woman’. and because he has sex with men, he’s feminine?

  • quartzoup

    There are only 2 genders. If you think otherwise, it’s because you are lacking basic scientific knowledge. You should look for that knowledge, and become a more truthful human being.

    Sometimes I think what a lot of people are trying to say is, “I don’t like gender roles” If we removed gender roles and stereotypes..would there be so many people who are confused about who/what they are?

  • Adri562a90na

    sex and gender are 2 different things

  • Max

    yeah yeah, we get it. it’s cool to be different. but honey, you have a penis, you’re male.

  • Max

    no that makes im gay. or bi. as far as I am concerned, that’s all the options.

  • Max

    true! but if you have a penis you are defintely male. male = sex. as it says in your passport.

  • Lolo23

    No uterus not a girl, sorry this is another cry for attention and honestly shows entitlement. What a disappointment 🙄
