What is Pansexuality?
It is defined as "someone who is attracted to anyone regardless of their sex identity or gender identity,"Pansexuality does not mean you are attracted to everyone, it's more accurate to think of it as someone who is open to being sexually attracted to anyone.A number of people who identify as pansexual will describe themselves as being attracted to people based on personality, an character rather than gender. This means they could be attracted to someone non-binary, binary, male, female or any other gender. Pansexual can be used as a noun or an adjective to describe a person who is pansexual.
Is it the same as panromantic?
Pansexuality is often used alongside the term panromantic, but the two are not the same. Panromantic refers to someone who is *romantically *attracted to people of all gender identities, whereas pansexuality is about sexual attraction.
Pansexuality vs. Bisexuality:
Sometimes pansexuality is used as a synonym for bisexuality, but they are subtly different. Pansexuality is part of the Bisexual Umbrella, meaning it's one of many identities in which someone is attracted to more than one gender. According to GLAAD, identifying as bisexual means you're attracted to more than one gender, while identifying as pansexual means you're attracted to people of more than one gender, or regardless of gender. So the two overlap quite a bit. But what it means to be bisexual or pansexual is also largely up to the person who identifies that way. As with any sexuality, whatever word feels best is best.
