The singer said they came to to understand their gender identify over the past year after spending time 'healing' and doing 'self-reflective work'. 

" I’m still learning & coming into myself, & I don’t claim to be an expert or a spokesperson. Sharing this with you now opens another level of vulnerability for me," Demi wrote in series of tweets.

"Please keep living in your truths & know I am sending so much love your way," they concluded the tweet.
