Panic! At the Disco’s Brendon Urie comes out as pansexual

Brendon UriePanic! At the Disco frontman Brendon Urie says he’s pansexual in an interview with Paper magazine.

“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,” said Urie, 31, who married his wife, Sarah, in 2013. “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. I’m definitely attracted to men,” he said. “I guess this is me coming out as pansexual.”

The interview was posted online today.


Happy Valentine’s Day my love. You make me THIS ☝🏻happy. ❤

Urie also made headlines recently when he pledged to donate $1 million to help LGBTQ youths in high school.

Panic! At the Disco’s sixth CD, “Pray for the Wicked,” debuted at No.1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart earlier this month. The CD is the band’s second consecutive number one release on that chart.

Urie, 31, who has previously said he has experimented with homosexuality and bisexuality, said that people thought he was bisexual with his 2013 song “Girls, Girls, Boys,” which he said was about a threesome.

“That song was about my first threesome but (fans) made it about coming out and accepting who you are as person which I thought, what a way better message,” Urie said. “Taking this thing that I wrote about and then changing it to be more inspiring for your own purposes, what a beautiful idea.”
