“My identity and being nonbinary is an embrace of many different parts of myself, the masculine and the feminine and everything in between,” Corrin added.

“I was working on a film in the US, away from everyone who knows me, and when people called me she, it felt so weird and uncomfortable,” they told The Guardian.
