Janelle Monáe has come out as non-binary. The 36-year-old award-winning musician and actor opened up about their gender in the latest episode of “Red Table Talk” hosted by Jada Pinkett Smith.
“I’m non-binary, so I just don’t see myself as a woman, solely,” Monáe told Smith, who was joined by her co-hosts and family members Willow Smith and Adrienne Banfield-Norris. “I feel like God is so much bigger than the ‘he’ or the ‘she.’ And if I am from God, I am everything.”
“I will always, always stand with women,” they said. “I will always stand with Black women. But I just see everything that I am, beyond the binary.”
Previously, in January 2020, the singer had tweeted out the hashtag “#IAmNonbinary,” which their fans believed was their way of coming out. However, Monáe clarified a month later in an interview with author Roxane Gay that they were tweeting support for Non-binary Day.
“It resonated with me, especially as someone who has pushed boundaries of gender since the beginning of my career,” they said at the time.
