During an interview with ABC News, Bella Thorne started talking about her sexuality. However, while back in 2016, Bella sexually identified herself as bisexual, she has now clarified that she is actually pansexual and not bisexual.
What’s the difference? Well, Bella explained that in the interview really well, as well. “I realized recently I’m actually pansexual, I didn’t know that,” she said. “Somebody explained to me very thoroughly what that is, and I am pan.”
Basically, according to Bella, being pansexual means “You like beings. You like what you like. It doesn’t have to be a girl or a guy, or, ya know, a he, a she, a they or this or that. It’s literally you just like a personality. You just like a being.”
So, while bisexuality refers to being attracted to more than one gender, pansexuality refers to being attracted to people, regardless of their gender.
Bella Thorne is currently promoting her book ‘Life of a Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray’, which touches on her life on the Disney Channel to her current mental health journey.
