To grasp the depths behind a person classified as non-binary is a person truly living in a world where gender-fluid boundaries were a thing in the past. Being classified as non-binary truly means not relating to, composed of, or involving just two things. Many celebrities today have taken the leap of truth as non-binary, including singer Sam Smith, Jonathan Van Ness “Queer Eye”, “Pose” Indya Moore and “Billions” star Asia Kate Dillon.
Janelle Monae an iconic artist & fashion icon has recently released a tweet with the powerful but simple 4-word tweet “I am non-binary.” Which was quickly met with thousands of comments of acceptance from all around the world. Those words alone are a monumental breakthrough and a truly inspiring tale for anyone who is battling with self-identity.
On the other hand, of the recent tweet being released, this world-renown artist has had countless battles with Non – genderfluid acceptance. If anyone truly understands them knowing that their fashion statements alone have shown a non-binary background.
They are completely known for the iconic imagery with fashion looks all over the red carpet on many occasions.
They would never give you a typical look that defines their gender as just one specific gender. They are a truly unique creature of creative habit, and by that I mean they define the word unique as a whole.
A Creative spirit whose only existence is “Freedom of Expression” They walk into the world with pride in knowing that the world will never be able to tell their story.
In the fashion world, they are completely in their own lane because they embody their own creative spirit in the clothing they wear. Countless times we have seen them step into the scene and showcase the beauty behind pieces that were originally generated for the male sex, but time and time again they have transformed a traditional value into a piece of walking artwork. With that single step into existence, they are showing the world no one can tell them what they can and can’t do. The world we live in is bendable and the way they carry themselves the world truly bends to their way life.
This is a powerful movement, they have been walking for years. From their countless cultivating album covers, creatively directed music lyrics and a well-crafted fashion presence. They have truly paved… no crafted the way of self-expression and self-acceptance.
To heck with traditional values of a gender-fluid world. Life is about the freedom to be anyone you want to be. You don’t have to be a celebrity, or mature age or anything else that may hold you back to live in your truth. Start small and express your truth in your walk of life. The people who are truly there to support you will step forward and take you by the hand to be there to make sure you never fall. That is why fashion can be just as powerful as words. It’s the non-communicative way of showing the world who you are.
Self-expression is the first step into a brighter tomorrow not only for the world but for yourself. If you show your surroundings you’re comfortable in the way you present yourself. The world can either accept it or they can move out the way because it’s coming whether the world is ready to accept it or not. Many individuals today who are struggling with self-identification are looking for a guiding light to give them the push of self-acceptance. So I say stand up and light your own way and let the world follow your light, so you can be the next inspiration to light up the world.
