Breaking her silence on the much hyped concept and fad of gender reveal parties that are being done from past so many years now, finally Demi bursts bubble on why gender reveal parties are problematic.
She featured in many classic films like Camp Rock and Princess Protection Program and also in a TV show Sonny With A Chance before becoming one of the globally biggest pop star and entertainer.
Demi Lovato has been vocal and open about her personal life which includes her previous relationships with Wilmer Valderrama and Joe Jonas, but also been voicing out her story about struggle with substance abuse. She is also a member of the LGBT community and recently enough also shared her view on another tradition that is really common in society but in reality could be seen as problematic.
Gender reveal parties are nowadays seen as a very common trend that’s like a norm for all the expecting parents. But according to Demi’s recent instagram session, it can be seen as a harmful thing to the members of the transgender community.
A part of the caption that is a repost from the gender nonconforming activist Alok Menon is, “Transphobia is not just prejudice or violence against an individual trans person, it is a belief system that presumes non-trans people to be more ‘natural’ than trans people. Only individual people can self determine their gender”.
Following up this post, an insider in quote to a leading internationally renowned digital entertainment portal was quoted saying, “Demi is very committed to be an ally to the trans community. She feels a real responsibility to speak up because she has this huge platform, she knows the impact she can have. And, she identifies as queer”.
That source furthermore also added, “This is her community, it’s personal for her. The past few years she’s made a big effort to learn more and to understand the trans experience more. And the more she learns, the more she sees all that needs to change”.
He also went on and added this bit, “She wants to open people’s eyes and hearts. Demi is not afraid of any sort of backlash. She will continue to push for trans rights and to use her platform to help educate people. Demi’s a hopeful person, and she does believe that things can change and get better. But she knows if no one ever speaks up, then nothing will change. And she’s not afraid to be the person that speaks up”.
