!! OMG, WATCH: Sam Smith speaks about being nonbinary, genderqueer, says he’s considered a sex change !!
Sam Smith opened up about gender identity and body issues recently in a widely-shared post on Instagram, and the shame he feels when he removes his shirt and he isn’t as fit as everyone else.
“I fully had breasts, and I had liposuction. I was 12. It didn’t really change anything. I think I put the weight back on in two weeks. I hadn’t figured out my relationship with food. Being 12 years old and having liposuction was a big deal. It was the basis of all my teasing…I had some horrible situations in school with guys. A guy grabbed my chest once and played around with it in front of all of his friends.”
“I’ve always had a bit of a war in my body and my mind [about how to define myself]…I do think like a woman in my head at times. I’ve sometimes sat there and questioned, do I want a sex change? It’s something I still think about, but I don’t think it is.”
Good for Sam for being so open and candid about his experience!
The OMG Book Club highlights new, must-read literature available at Glad Day Bookshop, the world’s oldest surviving LGBTQ bookstore (and a great Amazon alternative).
Jimmy Neurosis is a memoir by celebrated food editor and author James Oseland that spans a few years of his life as a gay teenager in 1970s San Francisco. Oseland dove headfirst into the punk scene where he adopted the moniker “Jimmy Neurosis,” exploring new social relationships, new compulsions and addictions, and embraced his own difference. He writes unflinchingly about his fraught relationship with his mother and his decision to move across the country to live with his much-older boyfriend and become part of the New York City art scene (there was a run-in with Andy Warhol in a stairwell).
This book is a vivid portrait of a counter-cultural moment told with an openness that’s astonishing at times. Jimmy’s perspectives and values were rapidly changing during those years, but there remained a deep enthusiasm and curiosity that drove him forward even in the book’s darkest moments. It’s an inspiring, frightening, and sweet tale that is particular in scope but universal in its humanity.
