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.

Bisexual or just confused??? If it wasn't just confusion then how come we never come across any 40, 50, 60 or even 70 year old bisexuals? I'm just saying.

Not surprised. She has a manly face, not being cruel, just honest. Otherwise who cares? Why does everyone have to know what everyone else chooses to do behind closed doors? Should we all be required to wear tshirts that identify what our sexuality is, maybe then no one will ask or wonder?
