British pop singer Sam Smith, who has come out as nonbinary and now uses “they/them” pronouns, is celebrating their new identity with an album called Gloria and a tour. If you know, you know. If you don’t, well, you probably actually do. Smith and Kim Petras’ performance of Smith’s first album single “Unholy” at the Grammys had Ted Cruz tweeting, “That … is … evil.” Cruz may want to sneak away to Mexico again, as the Texas leg of the tour is underway. You can see what all the fuss is about at Dickies Arena (1911 Montgomery St, Fort Worth, 817-402-9000) at 7:30pm. Tickets to Sam Smith: Gloria, the Tour start at $35 at Ticketmaster.com.

No, climate change isn’t real. *shakes head*
