CELEBRATIONSEmma Corrin (26), who became famous as Princess Diana in the Netflix series ‘The Crown’, is making history. The actor will be the first non-binary person on the cover of American Vogue in August. During an interview with the fashion magazine, Corrin candidly reflects on their coming out and the use of the pronouns die/them/their.
“I feel more seen when people address me as ‘that’, but my best friends still dare to address me as ‘she’. I don’t mind, because they know who I am,” Corrin explains to Vogue. “To me, gender just doesn’t feel fixed and I don’t know if it ever will be, it can always fluctuate a bit.”
‘The Crown’ actor graces the cover in a gold Louis Vuitton dress, a delicate Cartier necklace and a playful ‘Yankees’ cap. In Vogue’s photos it seems obvious, but fashion hasn’t always been easy for Corrin. “I remember having a hard time wearing bras like Lady Chatterly in ‘Lady Chatterley’s Lover’ and Marion in ‘My Policeman’. But that’s a difficult issue, because I’m not Emma at the time. I play a part and that’s my job.” The actor has been struggling with their breasts for some time. Last year Corrin shared a series of photos on Instagram with a binder.
Emma Corrin came out as queer via Instagram in April 2021 with the words: “your favorite queer bride”. The British actor admitted in an interview with ‘Granda Reports’ that he was not sure whether it was the right choice to “But the response from the LGBTQIA+ community has been amazing.” Corrin’s family is also very supportive: “I was dating a girl and told my mother about it, after which my little brother messaged me: ‘Hey! I want to welcome you, because I’ve been bisexual for years. ””
But ‘The Crown’ star has absolutely no dating preferences: “I just like people.” Although Corrin also mentioned that he has had relationships with men, the actor mainly felt immense pressure to justify their LGBTQIA+ identity. “I thought about the complex gender issue and my sexuality. And yet I date a man? That feels very contrasting, even when I’m happy.”
It took a long time for Corrin to realize that it is non-binary. In July 2021, the actor added the pronouns she/them in their Instagram bio. They have since been changed to those/them/them. The actor is in good company: musicians such as Demi Lovato, Kehlani and Halsey have also previously announced that their pronouns are die/them/their.
Corrin’s focus is on building a community for queer and trans people. Emma uses the power of Instagram: “If you have a platform where you can reach people, it’s so important to use your voice. I have already met great people as a result.”
