Yungblud Talks Sexuality and Gender Fluidity: 'It's About Connection'

He and Halsey could totally become a power couple.


Whether you know Yungblud for his hit singles or for his relationship with Halsey the two confirmed earlier this year, you should definitely know Yungblud. But what you may not know is how open the musician is with his approach to sexuality and gender.

In his cover story for Attitude’s September issue, the singer confirmed that’s mostly straight, but if he “walked down the street and met a fucking bloke tomorrow, or a trans person, you never know. It’s about connection.”

“I’m very fluid about it,” he added.

Yungblud grew up in Doncaster, but said he later moved to London because he wanted the opportunity to explore and to find himself.

“I came to London to be liberated, to be able to paint my nails, to fucking try sex with a guy, to try everything, to fulfill my fantasies and figure out who I am,” he said. “Ultimately, it was a massive journey to being comfortable in myself.”



And while he admits that there’s still a “dark part” in his brain that makes things hard, he says he knows who he is now. And that’s why he’s so comfortable expressing himself in ways that the public doesn’t really consider the norm for a 22-year-old “more straight” guy.

“That’s why I fucking wear a dress on stage. We’ve been brought up with such boundaries: woman wears dress, man sees woman’s curves, you can make baby,” he complained.

“I wake up one day and want to look girly as fuck, and I’ll make up the next and walk out of the house in a Fred Perry polo shirt looking like I’ll beat the shit out of you. I'll be Anita from West Side Story then suddenly transform into Liam Gallagher.”

Gay, straight, bi, fluid — you gotta love a guy who’s comfortable enough in his own skin to shed it and be reborn whenever he wants, gender norms be damned. If Yungblud and Halsey want to tear down the patriarchy, we’re totally here for it.
