(Newser) – The head vocalist in rock band Panic! At The Disco has come out as pansexual. Brendon Urie opened up about his sexuality in a recent interview in Paper magazine, per BuzzFeed. While the crooner is married to a woman, he told the magazine that it's the person, not the gender, that he's attracted to. "If a person is great, then a person is great. I just like good people, if your heart’s in the right place. I’m definitely attracted to men. It’s just people that I am attracted to," he said.

As Variety notes, the revelation should come as no real shock to Panic! fans. The band's song “Girls/Girls/Boys," about a woman who loves men and women, won praise from the LGBT community when it appeared on their fourth studio album back in 2013. Per the AP, Urie recently launched a non-profit aimed at supporting "communities subject to discrimination or abuse on the basis of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity."
