Wayne Brady, the actor, comedian, and game show host, has come out as pansexual. In an interview with Variety, Brady said that he has always been attracted to people regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation.
“I’ve always been attracted to the human spirit,” Brady said. “I’ve always been attracted to the soul of a person. I’ve never been attracted to just a gender or a body.”
Pansexuality is a sexual orientation that encompasses attraction to all genders. Pansexual people are not limited to being attracted to men or women, and they may be attracted to people who identify as transgender, non-binary, or genderfluid.
Brady said that he decided to come out now because he wanted to be a role model for others who are struggling with their sexuality. He also said that he wanted to challenge people’s perceptions of pansexuality.
“I want people to know that pansexuality is a real thing,” Brady said. “It’s not just some made-up term. It’s a real way of being.”
Brady’s coming out is a significant moment for the LGBTQ+ community. It is the first time that a major celebrity has come out as pansexual. Brady’s openness and honesty will hopefully help to raise awareness of pansexuality and to challenge people’s preconceived notions about this sexual orientation.
In the interview, Brady also talked about the importance of representation in the media. He said that he would like to see more pansexual characters in TV shows and movies.
“I think it’s important for people to see themselves represented in the media,” Brady said. “I want young people to know that it’s okay to be pansexual. It’s okay to be different.”
Brady’s coming out is a positive step for the LGBTQ+ community. It is a reminder that everyone is different and that love is love.
