Sam Smith says they have ‘girl breasts and girl thighs’ – and isn’t always pronoun-perfect.

The singer came out as non-binary back in 2019, a groundbreaking move that grabbed headlines around the world.

The Oscar-winner has been talking about the decision and what it meant after grappling with their identity for so long.

It is a year since Sam asked to be addressed as ‘they’ instead of ‘he’ or ‘him’.

The star has been speaking to the Sunday Times more than 12 months on – but says it hasn’t been a totally straightforward transition.

“I mess up, my mum messes up – my family messes up,” Sam said when discussing the pronouns.

The 28-year-old isn’t offended when others get it wrong, adding: “When people correct themselves it is a wonderful feeling, because people try.”

The Too Good At Goodbyes hitmaker continued: “I always had body dysmorphia.

“As I started to address that, I started to address my gender and realised that I was holding myself to these ideals of how a man should look.

“As I looked into it, I did therapy, I realised there was more to it. I have girl’s thighs and I have girl breasts too.

“It started to awaken this conversation that had always been in the back of my mind.”

Sam wants to have kids before they turn 34 – but is in no immediate hurry.

They say adoption and surrogacy are options going forward.

The singer identifies as gay and has considered a sex change in the past, and now wants to not be identified by gender.

Last month Sam got a ticking off for dancing in Freedom bar in Soho, London – breaking strict social distancing guidelines.

A source said: “Security headed over to their table and asked them to sit down as it’s banned due to the pandemic.

“There was no fuss, they understood the venue has to abide by the rules.”
