If you misgender me that’s okay: Demi Lovato

The New Orleans Heritage and Jazz Festival will return to enthral music lovers in New Orleans in October this year.

American singer and actress Demi Lovato has shared about how the change in their pronouns has been a transition for them and how they often get misgendered.  

The singer expressed their gratitude in a tweet to all those trying to use the right pronouns for them and said, it’s okay to all those who accidentally misgender them.

“If you misgender me — that’s okay. I accidentally misgender myself sometimes! It’s a huge transition to change the pronouns I’ve used for myself my entire life. And it’s difficult to remember sometimes!” they wrote in a note posted on Twitter.

“As long as you keep trying to respect my truth, and as long as I remember my truth, the shift will come naturally,” they went on to say.

“I’m just grateful for your effort in trying to remember what means so much to my healing process,” they said, adding that the change in pronouns can “be confusing for some, and difficult to remember for others.” “It’s all about your intention. It’s important to me that you try, but if you make a mistake, it’s okay. remember that I love you, and to keep going,” they added.

It is to be noted that Demi Lovato became nonbinary and changed her pronouns to ‘their’ instead of ‘her’ and shared that they are proud to make the change after a lot of self-reflective work.
