Anna Paquin Comes Out as Bisexual

by at . Comments

Academy Award winner and True Blood star Anna Paquin is bisexual.

The actress, who recently got engaged to Stephen Moyer, her costar on the HBO show, made the announcement herself in a new PSA video promoting the Give a Damn campaign, which features celebrities speaking out for equality.

"I'm Anna Paquin. I'm bisexual and I give a damn," the 27-year-old says on-camera, according to sources, who say they were unaware of this beforehand.

Others present at the taping for the Give a Damn PSA, on behalf of the True Colors Fund: comedian Margaret Cho along with singers Mya and Jason Mraz.

Other major names: Kim Kardashian, Elton John, Whoopi Goldberg, Cynthia Nixon, Sharon and Kelly Osbourne, Judith Light, Clay Aiken and Wanda Sykes.

Despite the significant star power attached to the campaign, it was Anna's revelation that garnered the most attention, catching some people by surprise.

The organization is dedicated to earning equal rights for people who are gay, straight, bisexual or transgendered. The organization's "Give A Damn" campaign launches Thursday, with Paquin's spot as the first of several to be unveiled online.

As when Ricky Martin came out earlier this week, we're happy for Anna because such an admission can't be easy. If she's content and happy, that's great.

Why do they think we care to know this? I am not interested and neither is most of America. We are interested in when the economy will turn around and maintining our standard of living. WE are not judging because we have lives to live, and want you to live yours. A bigot is not going to change his/her mind just because some rich person in Hollywood comes out. Trust me, they are too mentally challenged for that.

Trust me Hellion. THEY are out there. Too many people in the world for them not to be. Plus who is to say bisexuality and confusion are mutually exclusive. It's possible some people are confused and some are pretty sure about their bisexuality. Happens. Get over it.

People dye their hair,people wear extentions in their hair.People get implants, have surgeries that we know nothing about,people get married more than once,people have children from previous marriages.If a person is gay,or bi-sexual it is their business unless they choose to tell.Anna won the Oscar at an early age, has lived quietly,and if she feels comfortable talking about her personal preference she should be respected for her candor.

hellion, how often do you ask a 40, 50, 60, or 70 year old about their sexual orientation? just because they don't announce it to the world does not mean there not out there.
