The iconic TV host is ready to share his truth.


At 51 years old, Wayne Brady is being honest about his sexuality.

In a new interview with People, the TV host is coming out to the world as pansexual.

"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. So, I came to pansexual because — and I know that I'm completely messing up the dictionary meaning — but to me, pan 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. And, I think, at least for me for right now, that is the proper place," he says.

Before he made this announcement, Brady came out to his ex-wife and daughter. The star admits to being attracted to men in the past, but he's never dated a man.

"I've also been attracted to certain men in my life, but I've always pushed that aside because of how I was raised, and because I live in today's world, and it's scary as s***," he adds.

"I’m now trying to be the most Wayne Brady I can be. I'm doing this for me. Not dating yet though! [Laughs] I am single, but it's not about being with someone right now. I've got some work to do still. Then, Wayne as a single, open-minded pansexual can make a decision and be free and open to other people."

Welcome to the family Wayne!
