The society of humans, in general have established certain norms for everything. Norms are basically nothing but the unspoken rules that have been established by the society itself. It has been a while that people have started accepting facts of being gay or a lesbian. The intricacy behind various gender preferences is defining and re-defining itself time and again.
Earlier it was like a taboo for a man to like a man or a woman to like a woman. Virginia Woolf has quoted it very aptly saying as long as it’s a man who the woman is thinking about, it’s absolutely normal; it will be abnormal when a woman will think beyond that gender.
Over the time there have been more classifications of genders like lesbian, transsexual, bisexual, polysexual, pansexual, and so on, each of them having their difference of choice. Most commonly there is confusion among the terms of being bisexual and pansexual.
- Bisexual is someone whose preference of a sexual partner can either be a man or a woman.
- Pansexual is someone whose inclination is not limited to only a man or woman but to all other genders.
There are celebrities who are known for being bisexual but with time they have revealed being pansexual in their choices. Here is a list of some celebrities who have taken this gender diversity to another level and have dared to openly embrace it.

Madonna, her name is enough to identify her. The singer, actress, songwriter is seen to have been displaying her fusion of sexuality from time and again and this has helped promote terms like being bisexual, gay, and lesbians or in this case, pansexual. Her songs and music videos have been very well known since many years now.

Celebrities are symbolic and have the power to make people follow their lead. People idolize them, whatever they do becomes the trend. These celebrities, by opening up about their sexual preferences are in fact being of great help to understand that it’s nothing unusual about it. They have contributed to easing down the confusion that many youngsters have in terms of liking and choosing. By defying the norms, they have contributed to burn down many pointless prohibitions that have been a part of the society in the past.
