If you wonder why we identify Tipton as ‘they,’ then let us tell you Lio is not like you and us. The models consider themselves non-binary. That means they are not part of the traditional sexual orientation. 

Yes, America’s top model from 2003, Lio Tipton, came out as pansexual and non-binary. Here’s the full story of when and how they came out. 

Lio Tipton Came Out as Non-Binary

On June 3rd, 2021, Lio Tipton posted a picture on their Instagram account where a person of a different color is standing alone in the middle, and at its behind, there are red and blue people. The left side has males, and the right side has females. 

The prominent American model finally came out through this post and revealed themselves as a non-binary person to the world.

They don’t want to fit into the box of limited genders. The American model added a big caption where they tell what they have been considering themselves. 

Lio Tipton said, “Hi. My name is Lio. My pronouns are they/them. I am proud to announce I am queer and I identify as non binary. I hope to give as much love and support back to those who continue to show love and support for the Pride community at large. 🏳️‍🌈❤️ Lio”

If you don’t have a clue about what a non-binary person is, Tipton has cleared it in their comment on that post. They described it to one of their fans and said, “It means I do not identify with the traditional binary gender structure. I have not felt the whole fitting into one box for a long time.”

It allows me to understand myself outside of how people expect me to. I’ve made a choice to transition to non-binary. I am pansexual which is separate from one’s gender identity.”

It means we can’t identify Lio as them but as they and them. They want people to define them and not any traditional gender orientation. So who should Leo be dating? As a pansexual, Tipton can pick anybody to be their dating partner.
