US singer/actress, Janelle Monae has finally come out as queer after leaving fans in the dark concerning her sexuality. She addressed the issue in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine where she revealed that her sexuality is far more than what people have always suspected.
Admitting that she’s not straight, she said, ”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-ass motherfucker”.
According to her, she first identified as bisexual until she realized there was another term for something that truly describes what she is.
“but then later I read about pansexuality and was like, ‘Oh, these are things that I identify with, too. I’m open to learning more about who I am’..’.’
To be pansexual means that one is not limited in sexual choice with regard to biological sex, gender, or gender identity. This means a pansexual person can have sex with a man, woman, transgender as long as the person is a human being.
Janelle Monae however, didn’t say who she’s currently in a relationship with, but it is believed that the singer is currently dating actress Tessa Thompson whom she’s usually seen together with and at events on numerous occasions.
