Hannah Pegg opened up about her experience of finding out her sexual orientation and exploring pansexuality.


In an article on PopSugar, Pegg stated that she was 15 when she came out to her parents through a enveloped letter. In the letter, she told them that she was a lesbian.

However, something about that sexual orientation always felt strange to Pegg. She knew she liked women and had dated a girl once, but she was also confused because she sometimes felt a connection with men as well. She always had a nagging feeling that maybe she wasn’t just a lesbian.

She explored more into sexuality while taking queer studies class, and for the first time in 2013, she was forced to acknowledge and analyze her sexuality ‘dead in the face.’

She began exploring and came up against the word, ‘pansexual.’ Something immediately clicked. She found the word to explain what she had been feeling.

Explaining further about what pansexuality is, Pegg stated that it differed from person to person. She explained the dictionary definition of it to be ‘characterized by sexual desire or attraction that is not limited to people of a particular gender, identity, or sexual orientation.’

However, for her pansexuality is something fluid and it encompasses all people regardless of their gender identity.

‘One of the many things I love about being pansexual is that my love for human beings has no bounds. There are no restraints telling my heart that I can't love a person because of their gender identity,’ she further explained.

Pegg wrote that as a pansexual, she looked for a connection as opposed to a gender, which opens up various possibilities of forming a meaningful relationship.

She also revealed that being a pansexual was different from being a bisexual just in terms of how the person wants to identify.

It all boils down to whether they want to be a person who are attracted to both men and women, or they want to be someone who are open to all kinds of human connection
