Reflecting on why it didn’t work being engaged to a man, Demi told Glamour that she feels “too queer” to be with a cis man. “When I started getting older, I started realizing how queer I really am. This past year I was engaged to a man, and when it didn’t work, I was like, This is a huge sign. I thought I was going to spend my life with someone. Now that I wasn’t going to, I felt this sense of relief that I could live my truth.”
Demi also confirmed that she prefers being with women:
“I hooked up with a girl and was like, ‘I like this a lot more.’ It felt better. It felt right… Some of the guys I was hanging out with—when it would come time to be sexual or intimate, I would have this kind of visceral reaction. Like, ‘I just don’t want to put my mouth there.’ It wasn’t even based on the person it was with. I just found myself really appreciating the friendships of those people more than the romance, and I didn’t want the romance from anybody of the opposite sex.”
As to how Demi’ identifies, she said “I know who I am and what I am, but I’m just waiting until a specific timeline to come out to the world as what I am,”
On whether she’s looking for love, Demi said that her heart is pretty open. Well Find Femmes is here if you need us, Demi!
