Singer, Activist and now Actress Janelle Monae has comeout in the open about her sexual orientation. We all know about straight, gay, lesbian, bi and transgender. Now there’s a new way of identifying ones sexual preference and it’s call “pansexual”. This is what the talented singer goes by. A pansexual is someone who is attracted to all gender identitiesor people regardless of their gender.

This doesn’t come as much of a shock considering how free spirited she is. She has always been pretty open and honest with some mystery to her. ThePynksinger was quoted saying, Being a queer black woman in America…someone who has been in relationships with both men and women— I consider myself to be a free–(love proponent). She also added“But then later I read about pansexuality and was like, ‘Oh, these are things I identify with too.’ I’m open to learning more about who I am.”

Monae hopes that by letting the world know more about her lifestyle will help others who feel left out and ostracized about their sexual preferences will help them feel more comfortable with being themselves. Her album “Dirty Computer”which dropped yesterday will definitely help with those who feel bullied about their unique selves and personal sexual decisions. This is something not to be ashamed of, we should all start to encourage one another to be ourselves with no fear or shame that we will be hated for who we are.
