Twitter Reacts to Janelle Monae Coming Out as a 'Black Queer Woman'

In news that makes us want to throw glitter everywhere, Janelle Monae has come out as pansexual.

"Being a queer black woman in America", she said, "someone who has been in relationships with both men and women - I consider myself to be a free-ass motherfucker".

"I read about pansexuality and was like, 'Oh, these are things that I identify with too.' I'm open to learning more about who I am", she continued. But all throughout this discovery, she explained that she is continually "open to learning more about who I am".

After enduring many years of speculation about her sexuality - most recently thanks to a music video that celebrates "creation, self-love, sexuality, and pussy power!" featuring her rumored girlfriend Tessa Thompson - Janelle Monáe is coming out on her own terms.

Janelle won't go into detail about her sexual identity, but the clues are all there in her album.

On the song Q.U.E.E.N - which was apparently originally called Q.U.E.E.R - she sings: "Am I a freak because I love watching Mary"; and in PYNK, Janelle's rumoured girlfriend Tessa Thompson emerges from pants symbolising Monae's vagina.

Monae wouldn't discuss rumors of her relationship with actress Tessa Thompson, but she did dedicate the album to the LGBTQ community.

It is wrong for these social media giants to suppress and disregard people by diminishing and denying them their free speech. Ted Lieu on the social media hearing featuring Diamond and Silk: "This is a stupid and ridiculous hearing".

Google showed that "pansexual", "pansexual definition" and "Janelle Monae" were among its top five searches on Thursday in the United States.

"If you listen to my albums it's there", the singer says, adding that the song "Q.U.E.E.N." was originally titled "Q.U.E.E.R".

'Through my experiences, I hope people are seen and heard, ' she said. "It's just about the spirit that exudes from that other person you're with".

However, she has now officially clarified how she identifies, and it's all kinds of wonderful. Kesha told Seventeen that she was pan, saying, "I don't love just men". She told Same Same in 2009, "Before I was actually successful I'd always said I've always dated boys and girls and anything in between".
