Singer Sam Smith has come out as non-binary in an interview with actress Jameela Jamil (h/t HitFix). This means Smith doesn’t identify as male or female.

“I think I float somewhere in between,” Smith said. “I do think like a woman sometimes in my head. I even sit there and question, ‘Do I want a sex change?’ And it’s something I still think about.”

He said he is accepting that he isn’t a man or a woman.

“Non-binary or gender queer is you do not identify in a gender. You are just you. You are a mixture of all different things. You are your own special creation,” said Smith. “I’m feminine in many many ways. I’ve always resented that… Maybe I’m not a man, maybe I’m not a woman, but maybe that’s okay.”

Smith also discussed the difficulty of discussing body image for men, having liposuction on his chest at age 12, and how lonely he felt when he came out as gay in his small town that had no other openly gay people.
