Pop star Howard Donald has revealed that he’s open to pansexuality.
Take That’s Howard Donald has revealed that he’s into the idea of being pansexual to 49,400 fans on an Instagram post. According to The Mirror, the 50-year-old star, who has been married to a cis-gender woman for four years said, that he was inspired by fellow popstar Christine And The Queens, who also identifies as pansexual – saying, “Christine And The Queens, she’s a pansexual, I’ve read. Pansexual sounds good. Maybe I should be pansexual”.
“And let’s face it, women look at other women sometimes and think, ‘Ooh yeah, she’s tasty, I fancy her’
“I’ve looked at men before and thought, ‘Oh yeah, I fancy him, he’s a good-looking guy. I wish I looked like that’.
“You can still be attracted to men and still be attracted to women . . . as well as women, sorry.”
What is pansexuality?
Recently THEGAYUK.com asked its readers to help define pansexuality. One reader, Alex, told us, that pansexuality meant, “Love without gender, connection without exclusion, and plenty of fish in the sea” while another, Eggy, wrote, “sexual attraction regardless of gender”. Sometimes the identity is known by its “hearts not parts” mentality.
Howard then said that although he was happily married to his wife, he was “very open-minded” when it comes to pansexuality.
Howard married his partner four years ago and together they have two children.
