Courtney said: ‘The reason I identify as pansexual is not because I wander around the street looking at women thinking I wanna bang ’em, it’s because I’ve had sexual and emotional experiences with women, and I don’t count that out as being a possibility. 

Adding: ‘I had a threesome with two lesbians. I had an emotional connection with one of the girls. We just decided to give it a go. 

It doesn’t invalidate the gay identity. It’s important to acknowledge bisexual, pansexual.’
