There’s been an increase in the last few years of celebrities opening up about their sexuality and how they identify — and that’s pretty awesome, if you ask us. It’s seriously so inspiring to see them so confident in their own skin and not afraid to embrace the real them.
Some stars are even shutting down the idea that they need to identify themselves in any particular way and are rejecting labels altogether for more all-encompassing terms and descriptions. While some people identify as “gay,” “bisexual” or “straight” — others would prefer not being categorized. And the same goes for gender.
Take Bella Thorne, for example. The Shake It Up alum recently came out as pansexual, explaining that she is attracted to human beings, no matter how they label themselves. Pansexuality — also known as omnisexuality — is the romantic attraction to people regardless of their gender identity or sexuality.
More stars like Miley Cyrus, Cara Delevingne, Sophie Turner, Bebe Rexha, Ariana Grande, Harry Styles also choose not to be pigeonholed into a certain box. Each star has their own explanation, and many focus on the fact that it’s the person they’re drawn to — not the gender.
