Actress Bella Thorne has come out as pansexual, explaining that she is more ‘drawn to personality than gender.’
The 21-year-old former Disney child star had previously identified as bisexual.
But she told Good Morning America yesterday (22 July) she no longer considers gender or sex when looking for a partner.
While on the GMA seat, Thorne opened up about how a casual conversation with a pal about pansexuality opened her up to the idea.
She said that after someone ‘thoroughly explained what [pan] is,’ she discovered she’s ‘actually a pansexual.’
‘I didn’t know that,’ she said. ‘You like being. You like what you like.
‘Doesn’t have to be a girl or a guy, or a he or a she, or they, or this, or that.
‘It’s literally you like personality. You just like being.’
The dancer added: ‘[It] doesn’t really matter what’s going on. If I just like it, I like it.’
Thorne also opened up about penning a book, ‘Life of a Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray.’
She then cited that, moving onwards, she wants to focus simply on ‘being happy.’
When did Bella Thorne first come out as queer?
Throne came out as bisexual initially in 2016 when she was 18.
Fans have speculated about Thorne’s sexual orientation after pictures of her kissing another girl showed up online.
The Amityville: The Awakening star then replied ‘yes’ when a fan popped the question: ‘Are you bisexual?’
