Mae Whitman is letting people know she’s out and proud.
The Good Girls actress took to Twitter on Monday, Aug. 16 to publicly assert her sexuality: “Just taking a moment to say I am SO proud to be even a small part of a show like The Owl House. Being pansexual myself, I wish I had such incredible characters like Amity and Luz in my life when I was growing up. Queer representation is sososo important :,) keep it up world! #TOH”
The Owl House star continued, “I know ppl might be unfamiliar with what pansexual means; for me it means I know I can fall in love with people of all genders.”
She added, “This is the word that fit me best [rainbow emoji] and I’m proud+happy to be part of the Bi+ community :,).”
The actress then linked a GLAAD resource on bisexuality so that her followers unfamiliar with various LGBTQ+ terms could find additional information. She also shared a gallery on Instagram showing pics of herself, her recent tweets and screenshots from The Owl House, which is a kids’ animated show on the Disney Channel.
