Tana Mongeau is opening up about her sexuality in honor of Pride and she just revealed on Twitter that she is "pansexual as hell."

"I never thought I’d be brave enough to publicly share my sexuality in the way I do now...," she wrote, admitting that she has struggled with it in the past, dealing with people saying she's straight, or "discrediting" her relationships with girls.
"But I’m proud to be not only a member but an ally of the LGBTQIA+ community and I’m proud to say I will live my life based on loving people not for their gender but their soul," she continued. "Some people call that pansexuality, everyone calls me bi, I personally don’t find a need to label it all. Love and sexuality is gender less to me."
u knew i had a long ass pride post coming 🏳️🌈💗 i never thought i’d be brave enough to publicly share my sexuality in the way i do now.. i still struggle with it- i hate the boxes, i hate people telling me i’m straight or discrediting my relationship if i’m with a girl.. but i’m proud to be not only a member but an ally of the LGBTQIA+ community and i’m proud to say i will live my life based on loving people not for their gender but their soul. some people call that pansexuality, everyone calls me bi, i personally don’t find a need to label it all.. love and sexuality is gender less to me & i’m so lucky to have this platform to speak openly about that. also fuck our president for his absolute inhumane ideals toward the lgbtqia community and u better be voting his ass out with me.. it hurts my heart to even be posting about pride knowing that the rights of Trans people were just so sickeningly ripped from them. i will use the way that angers me to fight for change. I LOVE ALL OF U LGBTQIA BABIES, EXACTLY WHO YOU FEEL LIKE INSIDE IS EXACTLY WHO YOU ARE MEANT TO BE 🏳️🌈🖤

Tana has been in many high profile relationships in the past, both with men and women. She previously dated Bella Thorne for awhile, as well as YouTuber Brad Sousa. And, of course, there was her controversial relationship and marriage to Jake Paul. There have also been rumors that she's dating Noah, but they haven't been confirmed.
In her note, Tana touches on being called both pansexual and bisexual. The term "bisexual" is commonly misinterpreted to mean that the person is attracted to "men and women." In reality, "bisexual" is defined as "the potential to be attracted —romantically and/or sexually—to people of more than one sex and/or gender," "Pansexual" is under GLAAD's bisexual umbrella and means "being attracted to all gender identities, or attracted to people regardless of gender." As Tana said, she doesn't feel the need to put a label on her sexuality, though, she simply loves souls.
