This Wednesday 24 May, CNWL's LGBT+ Staff Network -  PRIDE@CNWL - is celebrating Pansexual and Panromantic Visibility Day!

Pan is a Greek prefix meaning "all" and is used to describe someone who experiences sexual or romantic attraction regardless of gender. This can refer to people who feel they are attracted to all genders or those that don't consider gender a factor of their attraction.

The three stripes of the Pan flag are:

  • A Magenta stripe, representing attraction to Feminine genders,
  • A Yellow stripe, representing attraction to Non-binary genders,
  • A Cyan stripe, representing attraction to Masculine genders.

Pansexual and Panromantic are closely associated with other labels such as Bisexual, Biromantic, Omnisexual and more! All sharing in the attraction to multiple genders.

The LGBT foundation has a great "5 things you should know " article for Pansexual and Panromantic visibility day which you can read online here
