Dancer Zackery Torres announced their new pronouns on social media.

Zackery Torres, a "Dance Moms" and "Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition" alum, announced the news of their upcoming transition on the popular video app TikTok.

Torres, 22, first caught media attention as the first assigned male at birth dancer on Abby Lee Miller’s show back in 2012. 

The recent University of Southern California graduate shared that their pronouns are they/she. 

“I’m transitioning!” Torres said. “That means I’m transgender, if you didn’t know. My pronouns are they/she, which means that they or she are totally fine.”

Torres came out as non-binary during their sophomore year at USC, Teen Vogue reported.

Torres utilized the days leading up to the Pride Month of June to make this official announcement, serving as a complement to a recent posting on Instagram from their 22nd birthday. “This is (and always was) Zackery Lennon Torres (they/she), a transgender, non-binary person.”
