Brendon Urie comes out as pansexual
Panic! at the Disco singer Brendon Urie has come out as pansexual.
The emo-rock singer, who earlier this month donated $1 million to help LGBT kids in US schools, said it was “just people that I am attracted to.”
The singer of “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” has long been an LGBT advocate, and went viral in April when he spoke out in support of people who use gender-neutral pronouns.
But during an interview with Paper Magazine, he clarified his sexuality.
Responding to a question about rejecting stereotypes about masculinity, he said: “I’m married to a woman and I’m very much in love with her but I’m not opposed to a man because to me, I like a person.
“Yeah, I guess you could qualify me as pansexual because I really don’t care,” Urie continued.
“If a person is great, then a person is great. I just like good people, if your heart’s in the right place.
“I’m definitely attracted to men. It’s just people that I am attracted to,” he added.
When asked directly if he was pansexual, the 31-year-old said: “I guess so, I guess this is me coming out as pansexual.”
The singer recalled that coming to terms with his sexuality was “never weird for me.”
He also revealed: “My first bar was a gay bar, I got in underage technically.
