Wayne Brady comes out as pansexual!
In an exclusive with People Magazine, the Let’s Make a Deal host shares his truth and reveals he’s pansexual, which means he’s attracted to people regardless of their sex or gender, or as he called it in the article, “Bisexual — with an open mind!”
“In doing my research, both with myself and just with the world, I couldn’t say if I was bisexual, because I had to really see what that was, especially because I really have not gotten a chance to act on anything,” he shared with the outlet. “So, I came to pansexual,” he said—adding that pan to him “means being able to be attracted to anyone who identifies as gay, straight, bi, transsexual or non-binary. Being able to be attracted across the board.”
Wayne said he first came out to his ex-wife, Mandie Taketa, with whom he shares his 20-year-old daughter, Maile. Wayne, who lives in a home with his daughter, ex-wife, and her partner of 12 years, Jason Fordham, is slated to premiere an eight-episode unscripted series on Hulu about his blended family.
