“Just taking a moment to say I am SO proud to be even a small part of a show like The Owl House,” Whitman tweeted. “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.”

“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. This is the word that fits me best and I’m proud+happy to be part of the Bi+ community :,),” she added.

Singer and actor Demi Lovato, YouTube star JoJo Siwa and model and actress Cara Delevingne are among the other celebrities who have come out as pansexual.
