Instagram has just made it a whole lot easier to be inclusive and display your pronouns on your profile.

As per POPSUGAR Tech, this feature is now available in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia, with plans to expand it to other countries.

To display your pronouns, head over to your profile, and select “edit profile.” You’ll then find a selection of pronouns to choose from; users can add up to four on their public page.

Some of the options include: he/him/his, she/her/hers, they/them/theirs, ze/zir/zir, zie/hir/hir, per/per/pers, and fae/faer/faer.

Your selected pronouns will then pop up next to your profile name, in a light gray font. This will help users identify others with the right pronouns, especially when commenting on posts or sending messages via Instagram DMs.

The new field is available in a few countries, with plans for more.
