Miley Cyrus appears to have publicly revealed that she identifies as genderqueer.

The 22-year-old singer took to Instagram to post a quote from an interview she did recently with Out magazine, in which she discusses her gender identity.

NOTHING can/will define me! Free to be EVERYTHING!!!

Genderqueer is the umbrella term for gender identities that are not mutually feminine or masculine, meaning that a genderqueer person may identify themselves as having more than one gender, having no gender, fluctuating between genders or simply not naming their gender.

The ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer hasn’t explicitly confirmed that she is genderqueer, though, so some fans are wondering if she’s just saying that she doesn’t want to conform to societal expectations of womanhood.

Miley recently also told the Associated Press that not all of her relationships have been “straight, heterosexual” ones, though she didn’t elaborate further.
