Pansexual: What is it - and when did the term gain popularity?

Miley Cyrus, chameleon daughter of pop, controversy and LGBT activism, delved further into her world of breaking down barriers when she recently declared she is "pansexual".

Cyrus has gained media attention in the last two years for hit tunes, sexually explicit dancing, a famous tongue and an open approach to her romantic interests.

The singer told her mum she was bisexual when she was 14, according to an interview with Paper magazine in June this year. And now she has told Elle UK that she identifies as "pansexual".

"I'm very open about it - I'm pansexual. But I'm not in a relationship. I'm 22, I'm going on dates, but I change my style every two weeks, let alone who I'm with," he said.

So what is it all about?

1. What is pansexuality?

Pansexual is a sexual identity along with bisexual, homosexual, heterosexual, asexual, polysexual, queer and more.

People use the term to describe being attracted to and falling in love with people of all and any gender, whether transgender, genderqueer, male or female. They are, to an extent, "gender-blind".

2. How is that different to bisexuality?

Bisexuality specifically recognises men and women as two genders, and describes an attraction to both.

Being pansexual means not having to register gender to be attracted to someone, so allowing for attraction to someone whose gender might not be obvious or who is transgendered - as well as more traditional identities like man and woman.

3. Who else famous identifies as pansexual?

Rapper Angel Haze, state legislator and politician Mary Gonzalez and YouTube video blogger Laci Green are among some of the higher profile personalities. However, it is still less known and understood than other sexual identities.

4. How is it different to polysexuality?

Polysexuality is attraction to multiple genders and identities. "Poly" means "many" in Greek, whilst "pan" means "all". So a pansexual person might be attracted to all kinds of identity, but a polysexual person might be attracted to just some.

5. When did the word become popular?

It seemed to gain ground in the early-to-mid-1990s, according to everyday feminism magazine. Google Trends show the word appearing on the internet as recently as 2007, a year after "genderqueer" also started to be used. It has grown in use and popularity in the LGBT community since.

Sometimes, all you have to do is ask.

America’s Next Top Model contestant Nyle DiMarco was asked a simple question by one of his more than 33,000 Twitter followers recently: ‘Nyle you have so much gays fans! Tell us, boys or girls?’

His answer was one word: ‘Fluid.’

But also he attached a link to an Everyday Feminism article entitled ‘How Fluid Sexuality Fits into the LGBTQIA+ Spectrum.’ The article details what it means to be sexually fluid:

‘Fluid has no fixed shape, but it still has a fixed volume and consistency. So it may be with fluid sexuality—just because a person may prefer men right now doesn’t mean that will hold true for the rest of their life or even the rest of the week. It may also be the case that some people are just wired to be more fluid and others are wired to have a more fixed sexual orientation. In either case, the person didn’t make a conscious decision about how they’d grow to express their sexuality.’
