Singer Donna Missal comes out as bisexual with a non-binary style – and it’s not a phase

Singer Donna Missal

Donna Missal, the singer-songwriter from New Jersey, isn’t here for anyone’s claims that her sexuality or gender identities are phases.

In an Instagram post, Missal directly addressed people labeling her sexuality, or making assumptions about her, based solely on her fashion or romantic choices.

Posing in boxer briefs and nothing else (save for an arm’s worth of colorful tattoos), Missal looks confident in her picture.

Here’s what she has to say about her identities, and feeling confident in them:

my non-binary style and fluid preference has no intention of diminishing gay culture but rather embracing and celebrating it sis i’m not playing dress up and being with a man doesn’t make me less bi read: it’s not a phase 🙂

Claiming bisexuality is a phase is a common form of biphobia. It comes from the idea that people think those who identify as bisexual are really either or straight or gay.

In reality, bisexuality is a completely valid identity and people can be bisexual for their entire lives.

In the post, Missal says her identities, expressed with non-binary styles, and bisexual and fluid ‘preferences’, do not have to cancel each other out. Rather, Missal, like anyone else, contains multitudes.

Missal previously collaborated with Macklemore and Rudimental. She’s currently touring the UK with the artist Bishop Briggs for three dates.

Her debut album, This Time, came out in September.
