What are Ezra Miller’s pronouns?

As per Ezra Miller’s official Instagram page, the 29-year-old’s current pronouns are listed as ‘they/them/its/ze’.

Some may be familiar with the use of ‘they/them’, gender-neutral pronouns used to refer to an individual as opposed to the use of more gendered pronouns such as ‘she/ her’ or ‘he/him’.

‘Ze’ is another gender-neutral pronoun and, according to MyPronouns.org, is pronounced with a longer ‘e’ sound, like ‘zee’.

What has Miller said about pronouns

In a 2018 interview with GQ, Ezra Miller said they were “comfortable with all the pronouns”. Miller explained: “I let ‘he/his/him’ ride, and that’s fine.”

However, in a 2018 interview with ES Magazine, Miller said that while they were ok with people using ‘he/him/his’ in reference to them, ‘they/them/theirs’ reflected the actor’s personal journey.

Miller told the publication: “I struggle with ‘male’. I don’t mind people using ‘he, him, his’ pronouns with me. Although more and more on my personal journey, ‘they, them, theirs’ are starting to make sense.”

More recently, in a 2020 GQ Style Magazine article, Miller’s pronouns were listed as ‘they/them’. The article explained Miller’s use of the gender-neutral pronouns was a “pointed refusal to be gendered or identified in any category”.
