Tinashe is opening up about her sexuality.
The ‘All Hands On Deck’ singer graces the cover of Gay Times, where she talks about her bisexuality.
Her words below:
“It’s not that I don’t like putting a label on it. But when you say you’re bisexual, a lot of people think… they just have a lack of understanding about what it is. And I tend to shy away from terms—I guess this is the theme of my life—that make people want to categorize me or put me in a box. I don’t like that sh*t. But—but—I can still give you a general sense of yeah, I’m bisexual. I’m somewhere on the spectrum. You know?”
The singer also addressed the misconceptions that surround bisexuality, saying:
“It’s not like all bisexual people like men and women equally—or like all bisexual people are a certain type of person. Human beings are so versatile. I don’t understand why we’re so obsessed with categorizing each other. I never wanted people to think that I used it for attention. There are so many f*cking stereotypes about being bisexual that made me want to shy away from talking about it. I’m much more open to having those discussions now.”
This is not the first time that the singer has spoken about being part of the LGBTQ+ community.
Back in 2011 she Tweeted about how she likes both guysand girls.
