Sam Smith opens up on being non-binary and their past issues with body dysmorphia.

Sam Smith has opened up on their gender fluidity and past body dysmorphia in a new interview.

The 28-year-old came out as non-binary three years ago, admitting that they had struggled with their gender identity for years before realising that they were "on the spectrum" between male and female.

Speaking to The Times this weekend, Smith revealed that having feminine physical features had added to their confusion growing up.

"Yes, I have always been non-binary, I have always felt the way I've felt, and just hearing other non-binary stories made me suddenly feel seen," they said.

"This is a way that I can live, where if I tell people this is how I feel and this is how I like to be treated, life is easier.

"For me, what triggered everything was the work I was doing with my body issues. 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."

Smith's third studio album, Love Goes, is released at the end of the month.
