As for how their family and friends are adjusting to using their new pronouns, Demi said their family in particular has done an "incredible job," and it's heartwarming to see people actively trying to adapt.

"There are times where I might have to choose," Demi added. "I had this conversation with someone — I was in Texas, and I was like, does that make me a cowgirl or a cowboy?"

"I was like, I don't want to be a cow human," they joked. "So I'm just gonna go with 'cowgirl.'"

Demi announced they are nonbinary and had officially changed their pronouns in a video on their Instagram account last month.
