Every year on the 8th December we celebrate Pansexual Pride Day. It is a time for both individuals and organisations around the world to come together and celebrate Pansexuality and raise further awareness to Pansexual people and their community.
What is Pansexuality?
Pansexuality is a sexual, romantic or emotional attraction towards others regardless of their sex or gender identity. Pansexual people my refer to themselves as Omnisexual or Gender-Blind, asserting that gender is not a determing factor for their romantic or sexual attraction to others.
Pansexuality differs from Bisexuality but the two aren’t mutually exclusive. Being Bisexual means being attracted to more than one gender, whereas Pansexual means being attracted to people regardless of gender.
Pansexuality and Bisexuality do not conflict one another, some people believe that Pansexuality better includes people of all genders while others are happy identifying as Bisexual. It's not uncommon for some Bisexual people to also identify as Pansexual, and vice versa.
Pansexuality is included under the Bisexual umbrella, which covers anyone who experiences sexual or romantic attraction to more than one gender.
What is Pansexual Pride Day?
Pansexual Pride Day is not to be confused with Pansexual and Panromantic Awareness and Visibility Day that lands on the 24th May each year. Although different dates to celebrate, they do however follow the same theme in supporting Pansexuality and to increase further knowledge and understanding of Pansexual people and the Pansexual community.
Like other Pride days within the LGBTQ+ calendar, Pansexual Pride Day is an opportunity to bring awareness to the stories and experiences of Pansexual people within society and to look further into how we can work together to improved inclusivity for Pansexual people.
