The Pansexual Flag and Pansexuality
Often in my practice or working with others in the mental health field, people ask me what various sexual and gender identities mean – one example we often get is “what is pansexuality?” Or “why does pansexual have a different flag?”
Pansexual is someone is who is attracted (emotionally or sexually) to all genders regardless of biological sex.
This differs from bisexuality as the definition of bisexuality is attracted to “both” genders or the gender binary.
What does that mean?
It means people who identify as pansexual are attracted to people outside the gender binary, including non-binary, gender queer, gender fluid individuals.
Pan means “all” which is why the identity is “pansexual” as it includes attraction to “all.”
The Pansexual Flag is used to show visibility to this identity and is three horizontal lines pink on top, yellow in the middle, and blue line on the bottom.
- Pink to represent sexual attraction to those on feminine scale of gender regardless of biological sex.
- Yellow in the middle to represent those who are not on the gender binary (e.g. non-binary people, gender fluid, etc.).
- Blue at the bottom is which is indicative of attraction to those who identify on the masculine scale of gender regardless of biological sex.
