conversations with yuno: pansexuality in japan

Pansexuality - the sexual attraction, romantic love, or emotional attraction toward people regardless of their sex or gender identity. Pansexual people may refer to themselves as gender-blind, asserting that gender and sex are insignificant or irrelevant in determining whether they will be sexually attracted to others.

You may already know what LGBT stands for but have you heard of PANSEXUAL before? If so, do you know what Pansexual is? What it's like to live as a Pansexuality in Japan? I talked to Yuno, who is from and live in Japan. And she is pansexual. Let's talk about pansexual a little bit first. To be fair, I wasn't sure what the differences between Bisexual and Pansexual. This is a very quick intro about Pansexual but here's the video.

R :

What's the definition of Pansexual for you?


Y :

I subconsciously separate men and women when I look at them normally, but when it comes to romantic relationship, I don't care about gender at all.



I think people who like men are tend to like men's masculine part and people who like women are tend to like women's feminine part. How about you?



Personally, I find gender in daily life like 'oh he is manly.' However, I don't find those when I'm attracted to someone. I just feel 'he/she is cool and I like him/her.' I sometimes tell people that I'm bisexual when it's troublesome to explain.
