23 Celebrities Who Have Defied Gender Stereotypes

Thanks to the rising profile of transgender celebrities like actor Laverne Cox and writer Janet Mock, Hollywood is finally aware of transgender issues. We know there are trans people out there who are talented, beautiful, and famous, but what about celebrities who are genderfluid or non-gender-conforming?

Until 2014, Bosnian-Australian model Andreja Pejic identified her gender as nonbinary and didn't identify as either a man or a woman. “There are just more categories now,” she told Vogue in 2015. “It’s good. We’re finally figuring out that gender and sexuality are more complicated.” Other people, including famous and influential ones, have identified the same way. Below is a list of musicians, actors, writers, performers, and artists who have identified as non-gender-conforming, genderfluid, genderqueer, agender, pansexual, or nonbinary, or something else in between.
