In an interview with “Good Morning America,” Bella Thorne revealed that she identifies as pansexual and opens up about a history of sexual abuse and other struggles in her newly published book titled “Life Of A Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray.”

Thorne has casually come out in 2016 on Twitter as bisexual but has since realized that she actually “expanded” and now identifies as pansexual. “You like what you like,” Thorne told “Good Morning America.”

“Doesn't have to be a girl, or a guy, or … you know, a he, a she, a this, or that. It's literally, you like personality, like you just like a being,” she continued.

Whenever a celebrity opens up about their sexual orientation, the LGBT terms get the spotlight in conversations. But many are still confused: what’s the difference between bisexual and pansexual?

While bisexual is defined broadly as attraction to more than one gender — whether male, female, trans or any other, pansexual does not take gender into consideration at all when it comes to attraction. According to GLAAD, nearly 6 percent of the youth population, of age group 18 to 34 years old, identify as bisexual.

Pansexual is defined as a sexual orientation described by attraction to a person of all gender identities, “beyond male-female parameters” — in short, attraction to a person regardless of gender. Nearly two percent of the youth population identifies as pansexual.

Not all pansexual are similar to Thorne in liking a person based on personality. Some can be attracted to all gender identities based on looks alone or any other factor and still be pansexual.

“Someone who identifies as pansexual is asserting that they are disinterested in gender when it comes to sexual attraction,” clinical social worker Matt Lundquist told MSN.

Miley Cyrus is among the most recent celebrities to publicly reveal themselves as bisexual. “Twilight” actress Kristen Stewart, “The Flash” star Keiynan Londsdale and Drew Barrymore are among the celebrities who have come out as bisexual.

“The Fast And The Furious” Latina actress Michelle Rodriguez revealed in 2014 that she’s bisexual. And she hoped that her public coming-out story made an impact on others who are struggling with their sexuality.

Meanwhile, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s” Latina actress, who plays Rosa Diaz, a bisexual female detective, hopes to see more bi representation on TV to get the conversation going and normalize the experience to all viewers.

“Being bi, especially, is many little coming-out moments over and over and over again and over again,” she told Buzzfeed News. “And I think those of us who identify as bi would have to do that less if there were more of us represented in the media.”
