Cara Delevingne has come out as pansexual. During a recent interview with Variety for their “Power of Pride” issue, the British supermodel turned actress opened up about her sexuality, revealing that she identifies as pansexual. that she falls in love “with the person” and not their gender.
“The thing is with me, I change a lot,” the model and actress explained. “I feel different all the time. Some days, I feel more womanly. Some days, I feel more like a man.
“I always will remain, I think, pansexual,” she added, saying that she is attracted to an individual’s personality and not their gender identity. “However one defines themselves, whether it’s ‘they’ or ‘he’ or ‘she’, I fall in love with the person – and that’s that. I’m attracted to the person.”
Delevingne has also spoken out about her LGBTQ+ identity in the past, previously she publicly came out as bisexual in 2015, and later sexually fluid.
Cara also revealed that she struggled with her identity when she was younger, admitting that she missed the “sense of belonging” that she now feels with the wider LGBTQ+ community.
Pansexual Cara Delevingne said, “Pride to me is a sense of something that I never really had as a kid,” Delevingne said of her sexuality. “A sense of pride is like a sense of belonging, a family outside your family, a place where you don’t have to apologize or feel ashamed.”
“I guess I never felt like I belonged anywhere as a kid. Or I always felt like I didn’t belong in my own body. I felt so lost.”
“Once I could talk about my sexuality freely, I wasn’t hiding anything anymore,” Delevingne added. “And the person I hid it from the most was myself.”
Delevingne recently split from her long-term girlfriend, Ashley Benson. The two were together since 2018.
