Sam Smith: Music industry is homophobic


London, Dec 8 (IANS): Singer Sam Smith says the music industry is homophobic and sexist, and they were worried about coming out as non-binary.

Smith, who came out as non-binary in September, told SiriusXM's Hits 1: "I'm loving it, I mean I'm scared everyday. Being my feminine self in this world that we're in, I mean the music industry can be a bit homophobic, a bit sexist at times,

"So being feminine like this in the way I move and dance and am, it feels quite scary at times but is worth it."

He also said their initial fears about releasing a video for 'How Do You Sleep?' which features the singer dancing in heels, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

They said: "I felt very vulnerable doing it but I'm seeing now that's the best space to be in.

"You feel joy quicker when being vulnerable like that. But I've always been like that when in the club, with friends, with people that I feel safe with but showing it to the world is a different thing and I finally felt safe enough to do so."

Smith announced that they were non-binary in a series of emotional Twitter posts in September.
