The Walk the Moon lead singer came out in 2020 when he was 34. A year later, he commemorated his outing as bisexual with an Instagram note.

British MP Layla Moran announced she is pansexual by tweeting a happy picture with a woman. In the tweet, the liberal democrat also talked about how pansexuals, to her, disregard the physical attributes of a person, whether it is gender or sexual identity.

He was the first openly gay player in the NFL. Carl Nassib was 28 when he came out on Instagram. It was a long road to get there.

It came at the beginning of his sixth season with the Raiders. He was the first active NFL player to ever come out with just 15 players doing so before him, but not until retirement.
