As the world is on a progressing road, it is becoming easier for people to break the gender norms. They can run around as they are and as what they want to be seen. The boundaries of the binary gender have become more inclusive and divided itself into a wide array of genders- from transgender to the non-binary, and more. When someone is non-binary, they don’t confine themselves strictly to the norms assigned to one particular gender. As some of them put it, they “float somewhere in between”. Gender-fluid people prefer to be addressed as “they” or “them”. Here are 10 celebrities who have proudly identified themselves as non-binary.
