In an interview with the pop culture magazine Paper, Brendon Urie of the band Panic! at the Disco came out as pansexual.

“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,” he 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.”

“I guess this is me coming out as pansexual,” he added.

Urie said that people already thought he was bi because of his 2013 song “Girls, Girls, Boys,” which he said was about his first threesome.

“That song was about my first threesome but [fans] made it about coming out and accepting who you are as person which I thought, what a way better message,” he explained. “Taking this thing that I wrote about and then changing it to be more inspiring for your own purposes, what a beautiful idea.”

He also talked about the first time he went to a bar, which was a gay bar and he was 17. He said that he knew someone who knew the bouncer so he was able to get in.

“I remember just being hit on all night and it was awesome,” he said. “I was getting drinks all night. These guys would just come up and I was like, ‘I’m flattered but I’m not interested but thank you.’ They were like, ‘We’ll get you interested, sweetheart.’ I was just like, ‘This is dope.'”
