Janelle Monae comes out as queer

Janelle Monae has opened up about her sexuality and revealed she identifies as "pansexual".

Initially, too, Monae originally identified as bisexual - that is to say, she feels equal attraction to both genders - but has since changed her tune, choosing to identify as pansexual because it's a more inclusive term. "Being a queer black woman in America, someone who has been in relationships with both men and women - I consider myself to be a free-ass motherf*cker", she told the magazine.

Janelle Monáe has finally confirmed rumours of her sexuality, revealing that she does indeed identify as a "queer" woman, as her new album "Dirty Computer" suggests.

Her "Make Me Feel" music video has been regarded by some as a bisexual anthem, USA Today noted.

But Janelle Monae is going one step further in her official "coming out" party and has announced that she's dedicating her album to all those who struggle with their sexuality.

She said that while she has avoided questions about her sexuality in the past, she did include references in some songs. Tessa has in fact been appearing in Janelle's videos since 2015.

Monae, a six-time Grammy nominee who has also starred in films such as "Moonlight" and "Hidden Figures", said clues to her sexuality have been in her songs, including "Mushrooms & Roses" and "Q.U.E.E.N", which feature a female love interest, CNN noted. "This album is for you". Dirty Computer comes out on Friday, April 27.

"I like to take risks with how I dress, I like girls, & I like guys (yes), I like growing, I like learning, I like who I am, and I really like who I'm becoming", he wrote in the post. She told Same Same in 2009, "Before I was actually successful I'd always said I've always dated boys and girls and anything in between". "It's something I am still processing and trying to understand, and I don't like talking about it too much".
