Panic At The Disco's Brendon Urie Comes Out as 'Pansexual'

Friday July 6, 2018

Panic At The Disco's Brendon Urie defines himself as "pansexual."

When asked in a lengthy interview in Paper Magazine, if he was "pansexual," the 31-year old singer replied: "I guess so, I guess this is me coming out as pansexual."

Urie married Sarah Orzechowski in 2013 and in past interviews has labeled himself as "straight." In the new interview, he elaborated on his sexuality:

"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. 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."

There has long been speculation over Urie's sexuality since he wrote what is thought of as a bisexual anthem with the song "Girls/Girls/Boys." He was inspired to write the song after his first threesome at the age of 16.

"I wrote this song 'Girls, Girls, Boys' about my first threesome when I was 15 or 16. That song was about my first threesome but they made it about coming out and accepting who you are as a person which I thought, what a way better message. Taking this thing that I wrote about and then changing it to be more inspiring for your own purposes, what a beautiful idea."
