Amandla Stenberg Identifies as Non-Binary and Came Out as Gay in 2018
Amandla is an intersectional feminist and a self-professed hyper-progressive. She was named 2015’s “Feminist of the Year” by the Ms. Foundation for Women.
Amandla identifies as non-binary, as in her gender identity cannot be put into a box as being concretely masculine or feminine. She uses both ‘she/her/hers’ and ‘they/their/theirs’ gender pronouns.
Stenberg’s sexuality has also been as elusive as her gender identity. She came out as bisexual in 2016 and later came out as pansexual.
She gave a definite answer as to her sexuality in her June 2018 interview with Wonderland magazine, when she proclaimed herself to be gay.
Coincidentally, the person who hosted the interview was queer musician Mikaela Mullaney Straus, better known by her stage name, King Princess, — a woman Stenberg would have a relationship with from early to late 2018.
Stenberg has stated that she does not own a smartphone, let alone indulge in social media interactions — for they negatively impact her mental health.
