Stevie also shares their journey to Stevie non-binary – which is an umbrella term for people whose gender identity doesn’t sit comfortably with ‘male’ or ‘female’.
To explain the journey Stevie starts the clips with throwback photographs which are captioned, with ‘she/her pronouns’ before transitioning more recently photographs are placed alongside the pronouns ‘they/ her’ at around 19 seconds in.
After Stevie cuts short their blonde hair, they reveal their name Stevie alongside the caption ‘All pronouns.’
Stevie also wrote, ‘Watch me become more comfortable with myself’ and ‘forever growing and changing’, and has used the hashtags ‘#genderfluid #bi and #nonbinary’ in several posts.
