Brendon Urie Has Come Out as Pansexual saying, “I guess this is me coming out as pansexual”

Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco has revealed in an interview with Papermag that he is pansexual. The frontman of Panic! At The Disco has spoke about his sexuality with Papermag saying  “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 person which I thought, what a way better message.” Urie continuing to say, “Taking this thing that I wrote about and then changing it to be more inspiring for your own purposes, what a beautiful idea.”

The singer then went on to describe his marriage, saying he wasn’t “opposed” to a relationship with a man because he “likes a person.” Continuing to say that “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.”

“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.” Urie says, “I guess this is me coming out as pansexual,” the star told the magazine.

Panic! At the Disco’s new acclaimed new album, ‘Pray for the Wicked’ explores themes of coming to terms with your identity, the difficulty of which Urie has spoken of previously. 

Papermag: I found the “Thank You Brendon” fan account on Instagram and there are all these people who say helped them embrace their bisexuality and to come to terms with queerness. How did that happen?

I don’t know. 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 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.

“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 guess this is me coming out as pansexual.”

Papermag: You also don’t buy into the old masculinity tropes.

No. 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.

Papermag: So you’re pansexual.

Urie: I guess so, I guess this is me coming out as pansexual.

Papermag: Did you find yourself as a young man having to really come to terms with your sexuality?

Urie: It was never weird for me. I know that it made a few people uncomfortable, when somebody gets uncomfortable about me doing what I used to call “stage gay.” It kind of presses me to want to do it more.

Papermag: What’s “stage gay”?

Urie: For our first headline tour I would go up to Ryan our guitar player, and like kiss him on the neck or kiss him on the mouth and he would be so mad. I was like, I just want to kiss you bro. I would hang out with friends and after five or six beers we’re just kind of like smooching on each other. People just get hammered and fool around.
