Panic! at the Disco frontman Brendon Urie — who was so winning in Kinky Boots —  “lays it all out” for Paper, coming out as pansexual as he donates a million bucks to LGBTQ youth ...

In the profile by Beatrice Hazlehurst, Urie, 31, says:

I'm married to a woman and I'm very much in love with her but I'm not opposed to a man because to me, I like a person. Yeah I guess you could qualify me as pansexual because I really don't care. If a person is great, then a person is great. I just like good people, if your heart's in the right place. I'm definitely attracted to men. It's just people that I am attracted to.

He goes on to say he never had a coming-out struggle regarding his attraction to dudes:

It was never weird for me. I know that it made a few people uncomfortable, when somebody gets uncomfortable about me doing what I used to call "stage gay." It kind of presses me to want to do it more.

He admits me may have taken advantage of his power, but is enlightened enough to hope not:

Oh absolutely. I even think back to times in high school where I think of a memory and it will be so embarrassing. Like I don't know if I overstepped a boundary. I was so young and dumb and unequipped to deal with certain things. I just hope that it never came across as creepy or just totally inappropriate because that's never where I was coming from.

He ain't Mormon, or Mormon-adjacent anymore:

I'm not religious at all any more. Actually, I don't know if that's fair to say. I definitely think Panic! At The Disco is a cult by definition. I have to accept that it's a cult now. I have no relationship with religion anymore except that I will still read the scriptures sometimes. It's interesting to me. To read it now in the context of who I am now, thinking about who I was as a kid and how I let all this stuff affect me. Until I started thinking for myself.
