18 Celebrities You May Not Know Identify As Pansexual

"It doesn't have to be a girl, or a guy, or a he, a she, a this, or that."

Pansexuality is when a person is attracted to someone regardless of their gender identity. Essentially, pansexuals are attracted to the person, and it doesn't matter what gender that human being is.

GLAAD says, "While being bisexual means being attracted to more than one gender, being pansexual means being attracted to all gender identities, or attracted to people regardless of gender."

Here are 18 celebs who identify as pan:

She realized she was pansexual in 2019. She told ABC News what that meant: "You like beings. You like what you like. It doesn't have to be a girl, or a guy, or … you know, a he, a she, a this, or that. It's literally, you like personality, like you just like a being."

2. Brooke Candy

She told Hunger, "I’m a feminist, I’m young and I’m gay (though I’ve now come to the conclusion that I feel more pansexual)."

She told Variety about the first time she realized she was pansexual, "I think when I figured out what it was. I went to the LGBTQ center here in LA, and I started hearing these stories. I saw one human in particular who didn’t identify as male or female. Looking at them, they were both: beautiful and sexy and tough but vulnerable and feminine but masculine. And I related to that person more than I related to anyone in my life. Even though I may seem very different, people may not see me as neutral as I feel. But I feel very neutral. I think that was the first gender-neutral person I’d ever met. Once I understood my gender more, which was unassigned, then I understood my sexuality more. I was like, 'Oh — that’s why I don’t feel straight and I don’t feel gay. It’s because I’m not.'”

He told Paper Magazine, "I guess you could qualify me as pansexual because I really don't care. If a person is great, then a person is great [...] I guess this is me coming out as pansexual."

5. Cara Delevingne

She told Variety, "I always will remain, I think, pansexual. However one defines themselves, whether it’s ‘they’ or ‘he’ or ‘she,’ I fall in love with the person — and that’s that. I’m attracted to the person.”

6. JoJo Siwa

She told People, "Technically, I would say that I am pansexual because that's how I have always been my whole life is just, like, my human is my human."

7. Demi Lovato

She told Joe Rogan that she identified as pansexual. "I'm so fluid now, and a part of the reason why I am so fluid is because I was super closeted off."

8. Tess Holiday

She told Nylon that when a guy at a bar in Mexico asked her if she was bi, Tess said, "Thank you so much for asking. I've been thinking a lot about my relationship to my own queerness, and I think the word pansexual speaks to me more than bi does." The guy at the bar then said, "Thank you for telling me about that, but actually, I said, Are you buying?'"

9. Angel Haze

She told Fusion that she defines pansexuality as "someone who sees people for who they are and not gender. I don't base all of my relationships off of sex."

I am pansexual. This means that I am attracted to people at a level that surpasses gender identity or sexual orientation. I love people for their souls and internal beauty.

She described to the BBC what pansexuality meant to her: "It means that I can fall in love with someone regardless of their gender, regardless of how they define themselves. I don’t really see that as an obstacle, as a definition.”

She told Dan Levy, "I looked at Dan, and I was like ‘What am I?’ I like a person, and I genuinely don’t care what the equipment is as long as we’re happy. ... And he was like ‘Do you watch the show [Schitt's Creek]? You’re pan!’ Cut to five years later, definitely pan!”

She told Vice, "For me there’s still a lack of representation. I just think the reason I wasn’t so comfortable with my sexuality was because there was no one on TV or anywhere that I could point to and go, ‘Look mom! This person is what I was talking about!’"

He told Attitude that he identifies as pansexual and polyamorous. "I probably would say now, I am polyamorous. Before I didn’t fucking know what I was. I was meeting people and learning. … By meeting them and talking about sexuality and gender, I [was] going, ‘Oh my fucking God, maybe I’m this, if I’m going to be fucking close to anything on the spectrum.’”
