Panic! at the Disco’s Brendon Urie opens up about his sexuality in a new interview with Paper magazine.
The 31-year-old, who has been happily married to wife Sarah Orzechowski since 2013, tells the publication that “if a person is great, then a person is great,” on helping fans embrace their bisexuality and come to terms with queerness.
Urie says, “I’m married to a woman and I’m very much in love with her but I’m not opposed to a man because to me, I like a person. Yeah I guess you could qualify me as pansexual because I really don’t care.”
“I just like good people, if your heart’s in the right place. I’m definitely attracted to men. It’s just people that I am attracted to,” he continues. “I guess this is me coming out as pansexual.”

Urie then discusses being a role model when it comes down to his sexuality, saying “I don’t know. I wrote this song ‘Girls, Girls, Boys’ about my first threesome when I was 15 or 16.”
“That song was about my first threesome, but they made it about coming out and accepting who you are as person which I thought, what a way better message,” he adds. “Taking this thing that I wrote about and then changing it to be more inspiring for your own purposes, what a beautiful idea.”

Urie’s interview also sees him open up about kissing his guitar player Ryan on the lips or neck during their shows.
He explains, “[I call it] barsexual. People get offended by that. I’ve said things without thinking about it — not trying to be offensive. I need to apologize for that.”
“I’m of the, it’s not what people say it’s what they do and who they are. We’re so focused on rhetoric and stuff… it’s like ‘Yeah, Donald Trump says really dumb s**t all the time but he’s doing way worse s**t.'”
