Pink says she does not want her kids to be defined by their gender and is raising them to be whoever they want to be, and present themselves however they want.  

The singer, who is mother to Willow Sage Hart, 6, and Jameson Moon Hart, 11 months, is a champion of nonconformity, both in her career and at home.  

"We are a very label-less household," she tells The People

"Last week Willow told me she is going to marry an African woman. I was like: 'Great, can you teach me how to make African food?'

"And she's like: 'Sure Mama, and we are going to live with you while our house is getting ready."

Laughing, Pink joked: "Who is paying for this by the way?"

“I want trans kids to feel free and safe enough to be who they are. I also want adults to have a fluid enough idea of gender roles that a 7-year-old girl can dress like ‘a boy’ and not be asked — by people who know her, not strangers — whether she is one.”

Pink, who has sold 47 million albums and 70 million singles, says she has been delighted to find gender neutral signs appearing in places such as schools.

"I was in a school and the bathroom outside the kindergarten said: 'Gender Neutral - anybody', and it was a drawing of many different shapes," she says.

"I took a picture of it and I wrote: 'Progress'. I thought that was awesome. I love that kids are having this conversation."

 

Pink, whose real name is Alecia Beth Moore, has been spoken out about self-acceptance and nonconformity before.

At the 2017 VMAs Pink gave a speech about embracing androgyny after Willow said "I'm the ugliest girl I know" while being driven to school one day.

She went on to say that she made the six-year-old a Powerpoint presentation full of images of iconic musicians and rockstars who were famous for their androgynous style, including Prince, David Bowie, Freddie Mercury, Janis Joplin, Elton John and Annie Lennox.

"When people make fun of me . . . do you see me growing my hair? 'No, mama.' Do you see me changing my body? 'No mama.' Do you see me selling out arenas all over the world? 'Yes, mama.'"

"So, baby, girl," she said. "We don’t change. We take the gravel in the shell and we make a pearl. And we help other people to change so that they can see more kinds of beauty."
