The world has gained another non-binary public figure. Billy Dee Williams has recently come out as being gender fluid, preferring the pronouns ‘himself’ and ‘herself.’
For those who aren’t familiar with Williams, he plays Lando Calrissian in the Star Wars franchise. In 2018’s Han Solo story, Danny Glover played this character and when asked about Lando, Glover replied that the character was pansexual, because why not, it’s space! After reading Glover’s interview, Williams had nothing but praise, saying, “Really? That kid is brilliant.”
When it comes to his sense of self, Williams was quoted as saying, “I never tried to be anything except myself. I think of myself as a relatively colorful character who doesn’t take himself or herself too seriously.”
Williams received support from all over the world.
