Singer Miley Cyrus discussed her own
coming out as pansexual and gender neutral in an interview with
The 23-year-old Cyrus came out last
year in a Paper Magazine cover story.
“My whole life, I didn't understand
my own gender and my own sexuality,” Cyrus
said. “I always hated the word 'bisexual,' because that's even
putting me in a box. I don't ever think about someone being a boy or
someone being a girl.”
“My first relationship in my life was
with a chick.”
Cyrus said that she “never related to
loving being a girl. And then, being a boy didn't sound fun to me.
I think the LGBTQ alphabet could continue forever. But there's a 'P'
that should happen, for 'pansexual.'”
“Even though I may seem very
different, people may not see me as neutral as I feel. But I feel
very neutral. I think that was the first gender-neutral person I’d
ever met. Once I understood my gender more, which was unassigned,
then I understood my sexuality more. I was like, 'Oh – that’s why
I don’t feel straight and I don’t feel gay. It’s because I’m
not,'” she added.
