Australian musician and queer icon G Flip (real name Georgia Flipo) has announced they identify as non-binary, and their proud and open message makes us so happy for them.

The singer and songwriter took to their Instagram account on Sunday night to share they will be using they/them pronouns from now on, while tagging their post Gender-Reveal-Party.Com. 

In the powerful announcement, the 26-year-old included a series of throwback photos from when their childhood, looking very cool in a slew of basketball caps, accompanied by a picture of them today (still rocking their trademark basketball hat.)

But it was their confident, assured and inspiring words which accompanied the post that had us cheering.

The full message read:

I’m non-binary mother f**kers! Big props to those who have been educating and advocating for the ENBY community the last few years.” 

“Looking into what it means to be non-binary had me realise that that’s who I’ve been my entire life. Gonna use they/them pronouns from now on too.”

“I’m still the exact same person, non-binary is just the best way to explain who I am and how I’ve always felt, like a gender smoothie…. also go pies.”

G Flip’s musical peers sent them messages of support and love in the announcement’s comment section.

Singer Jack River commented, “love yew G❤️.”

Gretta Ray wrote, “Love you G!!! 💖,” and Alex The Astronaut posted, “Superstar.”

Of course, there was also an outpouring of love from their fans with messages like, “We love you, and we are proud of you,” “Your pronouns always have and will continue to be ‘fu**ing legend,” and “You’re a legend Flip.

In a recent interview with Girlfriend, the You & I hitmaker spoke candidly about her experience, revealing: “I didn’t come out until after high school, later in life. I guess for me, when I was growing up, there wasn’t much queer representation in anything I watched on TV, or in any music I listened to.”

“For so many years, there was just this voice in my head that was like ‘no you’re not gay, you don’t like girls – you’re not gay, you like boys!’ and I was so cruel to myself in my head. Then after high school, I kind of just came out: came out to my family, came out to my friends, and the moment I came out was one of the most euphoric moments for me!”

For those who identify as gender-fluid or are still working out how they relate to their gender, someone as high-profile and inspiring as G Flip being so open about their they/them pronouns helps normalise non-binary identities within society.

We are proud of G Flip for being so open and public about their experience.
