What is pansexuality? RuPaul’s Drag Race star Courtney Act explains
Celebrity Big Brother winner Courtney Act says “a vagina or a penis” wouldn’t stop her falling in love with someone.
The gender-fluid drag queen spoke exclusively to PinkNews about being pansexual.
She said: “I identify as pansexual – I identify as many things, and many of them contradict.
“I don’t identify as straight – not since I was 15, but that’s just because I was unaware.
“It sort of falls under the umbrella of bisexuality.
“It means that you are attracted to people regardless of their gender – or are attracted to many genders, depending on how you look at it.
“I just like to think that I’m attracted to who I’m attracted to, and I’m not attracted to who I’m not attracted to.
“If someone happens to have a vagina or a penis, I’m not going to let that count out me falling in love with somebody just because of their body parts.”
Act also opened up to PinkNews about identifying as gender-fluid, which she says allowed her to be “much more comfortable” than she had ever felt in her own skin.
