Hains had previously spoken about being gender fluid, telling the magazine Boys By Girls: “I know that I am born male, but I don’t think I represent what it means to be a man. I believe we should be whatever we want. It gets kind of confusing when we start labelling ourselves so I try to stay away from labels.” In the same interview, he also revealed he had suffered from a severe type of insomnia during his childhood.
