There are many different identities that fall under the LGBTQ+ umbrella, and as of 2021, Gallup reports that 5.6% of American adults consider themselves members of the LGBTQ+ community. That considerable amount encompasses all forms of queerness, including pansexuality — which is a label “High Hopes” singer Brendon Urie has accepted for himself, per BuzzFeed. According to WebMD, pansexuality is “the romantic, emotional, and/or sexual attraction to people regardless of their gender.” Pansexual people are able to feel attracted to anyone, no matter their identity.
In a 2018 interview with Paper Magazine, Urie shared candidly about his attraction to all people, despite his being married to a woman. “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,” the singer said. “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.” The outlet also shared that, in line with these sentiments, the Panic! At The Disco song “Girls/Girls/Boys” was inspired by Urie’s first queer sexual experience, and it became a “bisexual anthem.”
