In her recent interview for NYLON magazine, Tess Holliday opened up about a lot of things, among which is her coming out as pansexual and her decision to get an abortion. The photoshoot took place in Mexico and Tess absolutely slayed it!
For those who might not know, Tess Holliday is an American plus-size model, a makeup artist, and a social media influencer who has almost 2 million followers on Instagram and started one of the most frequently used hashtags of all times – #EffYourBeautyStandards. She’s been on the cover of huge magazines like Cosmopolitan, People Magazine, and Cosmo.
Reflecting on her sexuality, the model shared a story of when she said it out loud for the first time. She was at a pool bar, and a man came up to her asking “Are you bi?”. To which she responded that she’s been thinking about her relationship to her own queerness, and she thought that the word pansexual spoke to her more than bisexual did (but it turns out the man was asking if she “was buying?”)
In case you are wondering, “pansexual” is used to refer to a person who is attracted to people no matter what their gender or sex.
