  • Mary Gonzalez campaigned and won votes to the Texas State House as the best candidate in El Paso. And now that she’s won the Democratic primary and faces the November election unopposed, she’s confidently opening up about her sexuality.

    Gonzalez told reporters that she identifies herself as a pansexual. Although many find the sexual orientation similar to bisexuality, she explained that pansexuals do not believe in a gender binary and the attraction is based on all gender identities.

    “Gender identity isn’t the defining part of my attraction,” Gonzalez explained.

    Her recent revelation makes her the first U.S. official to publicity identify as a pansexual.

    The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation commended Gonzalez for having the courage to open up about her orientation in the political spectrum.

    “Leadership defines Representative Gonzalez’ ability to govern, not the person she loves,” Graddick says. ” Her courage to speak out is commendable at a time when visibility of diverse people in the LGBT community is low.”
