“While I resonate more with dating cis and trans men, I also find cis and trans women attractive. I’m at the beginning of this journey and feel more confident than ever before,” the reality star continued.
“Pansexuality is not difficult to understand, but rather than being offended, I would rather help people understand and learn with resources and education.”
Thomas ended the post by thanking fans for their support, writing, “Thank you for your support during MAFS and beyond, you helped give me the confidence to live my truth.”
Thomas also revealed that he brought up his pansexuality during a house call with ex Adrian Sanderson, who he was linked to on the show, saying: “I also came out during my ex-husband’s stay, but of course they should reduce hours of filming to one hour.”
