There is more than one way of identifying oneself. When a person identifies as non-binary, it means that they don’t conform to the gender stereotypes that come with being assigned “male” or “female” at birth.
We, at Munchable, support any way of self-expression and put no discrimination towards any human being. So, today, we want to talk about celebrities who have come out as non-binary or transgender.

Yet inside, I am considerably more female.”
