After identifying as genderqueer in 2017, Sam bravely revealed their non-binary gender in March 2019 and has since been embracing their true self since.

Sam spoke candidly about being non-binary in September, telling fans that they define themselves as neither masculine or feminine.

They did an interview with Jameela Jamil, in which the two stars discussed the topics of gender and identity.

Sam said: "You do not identify in a gender.

"You are just you. You are your own special creation. That is how I take it. I am not male or female. I think I float somewhere in between – somewhat on the spectrum."

They added: "I've always had a bit of a war in my body and my mind…I do think like a woman in my head at time.

"I've sometimes sat there and questioned, 'Do I want a sex change?' It's something I still think about, but I don't think it is.

"I've tried to change that into my thoughts on gender…when I move, when I have sex with men, it's very feminine. I'm feminine in many ways – and I've resented that."

Since making their announcement, Sam has been actively challenging outdated stereotypes.

The BRIT Award's even abolished gongs awarded for the best male and female solo acts after Sam revealed their new gender status.

Their new look comes after the Oscar-winner said that they might stop touring all together because "touring is really, really difficult."

Sam revealed they've faced severe mental health struggles while on the road and even has a therapist who tours with them.
