Panic! At the Disco’s Brendon Urie Comes Out as Pansexual
Just months after fellow musician Janelle Monae's revelation in Rolling Stone, Panic! At the Disco's Brendon Urie has come out as pansexual.
The Pray for the Wicked singer came out in a new interview with Paper magazine, sharing, "I guess this is me coming out as pansexual."
When asked about tropes about masculinity, Urie revealed, "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. 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."
Urie added that he hasn't really "had to come to terms" with his sexuality: "It was never weird for me."
The rocker also opened up about fans who have credited him with helping them realize and come to terms with their own queerness.
"I wrote this song 'Girls, Girls, Boys' about my first threesome when I was 15 or 16. That song was about my first threesome but they made it about coming out and accepting who you are as person which I thought, what a way better message," he mused. "Taking this thing that I wrote about and then changing it to be more inspiring for your own purposes, what a beautiful idea."
