launched her own new queer dating competition/social experiment 24 Hours Of Love, which sees the performer thrown into a house with 18 male suitors for, you guessed it, 24 hours, in the hopes of finding his one true love.But today, Miss Vanjie is taking on the role of Metro.co.uk’s very own LGBTQ+ agony aunt, and she’s here to help how to go about sharing new pronouns.Dear Miss Vanjie, I’ve recently come to understand that I am non-binary and have now started using the pronouns they/them as well as she/her to describe myself.
How do I go about telling friends and colleagues? Is there a way of subtly dropping my pronouns into a conversation without making it a conversation all about my gender?From my own experiences, and some of my friends who have changed their pronouns, I would say be patient.
Bring up the topic depending on how comfortable you are and hopefully the people they are around are understanding and are able to adapt.
It shouldn’t be a problem.I know I’m in a field that is primarily different colours of the rainbow, and different flavours of the soup, but I feel like everyone is quite open-minded.
