Johnathan Van Ness, best known for being the grooming guru on Netflix's "Queer Eye," came out as nonbinary in a new interview with Out magazine.

"The older I get, the more I think that I'm nonbinary — I'm gender non-conforming," Van Ness explained "Like, some days I feel like a man, but then other days I feel like a woman. I don't really — I think my energies are really all over the place.

"Any opportunity I have to break down stereotypes of the binary, I am down for it, I'm here for it. I think that a lot of times gender is used to separate and divide," he went on to say. "It's this social construct that I don't really feel like I fit into the way I used to. I always used to think 'Oh, I'm like a gay man,' but I think any way I can let little boys and little girls know that they can express themselves and they can like be — like, making iconic partnerships with brands like Essie no matter how they present is really important and exciting."

Van Ness also said that he prefers he/him pronouns but doesn't totally identify as a "man."
