Owl House’s Mae Whitman Comes Out Pansexual #pinkinourlives

Mae Whitman opened up about her sexuality on Monday while praising the series The Owl House for its representation of queer characters. Whitman voices Amity Blight, a lesbian witch, on the show.

โ€œJust taking a moment to say I am SO proud to be even a small part of a show like The Owl House,โ€ she tweeted Monday. โ€œBeing pansexual myself, I wish I had such incredible characters like Amity and Luz in my life when I was growing up. Queer representation is so so so important :,) keep it up world! #TOH,.”

She followed the post with another one clarifying what she meant, for those who were unfamiliar with the label: โ€œI know ppl might be unfamiliar with what pansexual means; for me it means I know I can fall in love with people of all genders,โ€ she wrote. โ€œThis is the word that fits me best and I’m proud+happy to be part of the Bi+ community :,)โ€ Along with a link to GLAAD’s Accelerating Bi+ Acceptance page.

The Owl House has won praise for its depiction of Whitmanโ€™s character Amityโ€™s growing romantic connection to the showโ€™s central character, Luz Noceda; series creator Dana Terrace confirmed the characters are are lesbian and bi identified, respectively.

While this is the first time Whitman has put a label on her sexuality, this isn’t the first time that sheโ€™s addressed her queerness. In 2014, Whitman told that she just liked people. โ€œI like everyone. I see so much wonderful potential in everyone that I meet, and there’s always something to learn from,โ€ she said. โ€œI think girls are attractive, I think boys are attractive, I think old people are attractive, I think young people are โ€” I appreciate everything and everyone.โ€

Whitman shared that she had the benefit of growing up in a home where same-sex attraction was totally accepted. โ€œI definitely have times where I’m attracted to girls or I’m attracted to who I’m attracted to and that should be the way that it is,โ€ Whitman added.
