Gonzalez originally came out as a bisexual at age 21 and revealed that she’s dated people who are transgender and “gender-queer” in addition to women.

“[I} feel as if the term bisexual was encompassing of a gender spectrum that I was dating and attracted to,” Gonzalez explained.

She said that she didn’t feel comfortable coming out during her election because she thought it would confuse and overwhelm people.

Denis Dison, a spokesman for the Washington, D.C.-based Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, commended Gonzalez’ decision on being the first to uniquely identify with being a pansexual.

“People should inform the media and others about the term they prefer, and that sort of education is a good thing,” Dison said. “It’s also a little more tricky in politics to be cutting edge and inform people about something they may not be familiar with.”
