Haven’t you heard? Traditional labels of straight, gay, bi and trans don’t cut it anymore. Alternative sexualities are all the rage, and the new enlightened identity among famous millennials is to be “pansexual”, “omnisexual” or “sexually fluid”. These open-minded folks don’t limit their sexual choices with regard to biological sex, gender or gender identity. They just love who they love. It’s not quite the same as being bisexual, where one is attracted to both males and females. With sexual fluidity, gender doesn’t even factor into what attracts them to a partner. Is this trend just the explorations of the “whatevs” generation, spawned by a cultural shift towards tolerance and diverse experiences? Or are these stars being true to themselves, finally having the awareness and vocabulary to express how they feel about their ever-shifting sexuality? Check out these 10 pansexual celebrities who are open to embracing the full sexual spectrum.
1. Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus has never been shy about expressing herself or exploring a range of sexual possibilities. She told Out that she doesn’t label herself as a heterosexual, and she told Time that she’s had relationships with both men and women. She also told Paper that she’s “literally open to every single [sexual] thing that is consenting and doesn’t involve an animal and everyone is of age.” She finally put a label on it with Elle UK, when she officially called herself “pansexual.” She’s currently rumored to be seeing model Stella Maxwell, but not exclusively.
2. Lily-Rose Depp
The 16 year old daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis recently declared herself to be “sexually fluid” in an August 24 Instagram message. The up and coming model and aspiring actress posed for the Self Evident Truths Project, which strives “to help young people feel good being true to themselves.” The striking teen says she falls somewhere on the vast sexual spectrum, kind of like her new step-mom, Amber Heard, who had relationships with several women before marrying Johnny Depp last February.
