G Flip has released a powerful new single in commemoration of International Non-Binary People’s Day.
Their latest single, Waste of Space was released alongside a powerful essay by the signer/songwriter.
“I wasn’t sure if I would ever release this song,” G Flip wrote.
“[but] I know that if I had this song as a kid, it would have changed my entire life”.
They said that after their gender-identity became public knowledge, they had been “flooded” with messages and questions about being non-binary.
“There have been many positive messages including from parents reaching out and asking on how to best support their non-binary children, as well as messages from people who just want to understand what being non-binary is and means,” they wrote
“But there have also been a lot of hateful messages about my gender identity and people even telling me that I’m not non-binary.
“Even though I wasn’t sure if I’d ever release this song, the more I thought about it, I realised how much the world needs this song.”
‘Like a gender smoothie’, says G Flip
G Flip came out as non-binary in 2021 in an Instagram post and uses they/them pronouns.
“I’m non-binary mother f*ckers!”, they wrote in a post that featured a series of childhood snaps.
“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.
“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.”
