Jonathan Van Ness comes out as gender non-binary
In a recent interview for Out Magazine, JVN confirmed he identifies as nonbinary. The Queer Eye star said he prefers he/him pronouns but does not identify as a man.
"Somedays I feel like a boy and somedays I feel like a girl. I didn’t think I was allowed to be nonconforming or genderqueer or nonbinary — I was just always like “a gay man” because that’s just the label I thought I had to be."
