The Doncaster singer's next single, 'Fleabag,' will be released on Thursday, August 19.
In a new interview, pop-punk singer Yungblud has discussed how he hopes those who are struggling with their sexuality will feel encouraged by his decision to come out as pansexual.
Yungblud, whose legal name is Dominic Harrison, came out as a member of the LGBTQ+ community last year. He recently was the cover star for Hunger magazine, where he discussed his hopes for others that are struggling with their sexuality.
"I was just like with it all; 'I'm pan, you know what I'm saying?' It doesn't matter what genitalia you've got or what you identify as, if I love you, I love you and that's it, and that's [something] I've struggled with my whole life, because I didn't know what I was," he said. "I couldn't quite put a label on it, then I learned about pansexuality from magazines and the internet and I think it's so beautiful that sexuality has really come to the forefront of my generation's mind, that you can be beautifully yourself."
He went on to add that he hopes other will feel encouraged by his decision to come out.
"What I want to encourage with my message is that no matter what you are, no matter how you want to express yourself, you are individual and you are beautiful just by simply existing," said the 24-year-old. "I wanted to make a stand so that if anyone's out there scared to come out, they will come out."
Throughout the rest of the interview, Yungblud spoke about how he's found a community through his music, leads with his heart when it comes to his fashion choices, and struggled with the gender-conforming expectations in his hometown of Doncaster.
Following the success of his previous releases – 2018's YUNGBLUD EP, 2018's debut album 21st Century Liability, 2019's the underrated youth EP, and 2020's weird! album – Yungblud is set to release his next single, 'Fleabag,' on August 19. He has also confirmed that more new music is indeed on its way.
"There's an album coming. Full stop. Underlined. I can't wait for you to hear it," he told Hunger.
