Let’s shine some light on the Pan identities today.
Pan is a root word meaning all: Pan is the attraction to people of all genders, or where the gender of the person is not a contributing factor to attraction.
Pansexual is the sexual attraction to all genders and Panromantic is the romantic attraction to all genders.
Pansexuals and Panromantics see gender as a characteristic about a person rather than a deciding factor in who they are or are not attracted to.
To help celebrate, here is a fun link from Q42 with pan representation in popular culture, including David from Schitt’s Screek explaining his sexuality with wine.
