Celebrating Pansexual and Panromantic Visibility Day

Happy Pansexual Visibility Day!

May 24 is Pansexual and Panromantic Visibility Day. Pansexuality is defined as being romantically, sexually or emotionally attracted to another individual regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation. Read more about what pansexuality means from pansexual celebrities.

Pansexual (and bisexual+) identities are often misrepresented in the LGBTQ community, so we raise awareness and combat the stigmas around pansexuality. Pansexual Pride Day is also celebrated on December 7. 

Learning about pansexuality

Do you have questions about pansexuality but don’t know where to start? Learn more about bisexuality+ from the American Institute of Bisexuality, also known as the Bi Foundation, at www.bi.org/en. If you’re still figuring things out, we suggest the Human Rights Campaign’s “Five Pieces of Advice for Coming Out as Bi, Pan, Queer, or Fluid.” 

Is someone you know bi, pan or queer? Educate yourself to be a better ally, friend, partner or family member. Read more about how to support pansexual youth at pflag.org/tags/pansexual. Also, check out the Bi Foundation’s guide to understanding the difference between bisexuality and pansexuality
