After years of speculation, the singer Janelle Monáe is speaking out about her sexuality for the first time, claiming she is ‘pansexual.’

Nexter.org explains what it means and makes a list of other celebs you had no idea were pansexual.

What does it mean to be pansexual?

People sometimes associate pansexuality with bisexuality although the two are different.

Sexologist Dr. Carlen Costa told Cosmopolitan that pansexuality is”the sexual, romantic, emotional, physical, or spiritual attraction to people, regardless of their specific gender identity or sexual expression. Pansexuality is about recognizing that as a people, we have evolved, thus the language of love and relationships has also had to evolve and become increasingly inclusive.”

In basic terms, pansexuality means that you can be attracted to men or women, a transgender person, a person who does not identify with gender at all, or yes, a heterosexual person. It means you don’t think about gender when considering a romantic partner.

What sets it apart from bisexuality, however, is that it also means you can be attracted to non-binary gender identities. In other words, pansexuality is being attracted to anyone, regardless of how they identify.

Janelle Monáe

In a Rolling Stone cover story, Janelle Monáe came out as “pansexual.” After identifying as bisexual, Monáe says that once she read about pansexuality, she realized: “ ‘Oh, these are things that I identify with too.’ I’m open to learning more about who I am.”

Amandla Stenberg

The Hunger Games star identified as “a black, bisexual woman” during a Teen Vogue Snapchat takeover last January. Later, in a video they made for Rookiemagazine, Stenberg said they would use the identifier “pansexual” instead of “bisexual” if more people understood what it meant.

Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart is “like so gay, dude.” Having dated both men and women (including Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson and visual effects specialist Alicia Cargile), Stewart told The Guardian in March, “You’re not confused if you’re bisexual. It’s not confusing at all. For me, it’s quite the opposite she is bisexual.”
