When asked what pronouns he prefers, Seann said he doesn’t mind ‘he, she or they’, as long as people are ‘respectful and positive’.

‘My dad calls me he. My girlfriends call me she. I am, I guess, fluid in how I dress. I don’t mind, call me whatever you want, as long as you call me,’ he said.

‘Everyone wants to belong and feel respected – I still get confused with our queer community and the alphabet, but as long as you are respectful and positive and want to learn and change, that is all that matters.’
