As part of Billboard's "Love Letter to the LGBTQ Community" series, Jason Mraz has released a statement that many are interpreting as him opening up about being bisexual.
He writes in "Love Poem to the LGBTQ Community":
We still have a long way to go
I am bi your side.
People within the queer community are speculating that this pun is Mraz's understated way of coming out as bisexual. And the choice to say "All ways" rather than "always" could be a subtle way of saying he goes all ways sexually.
Mraz, who is married to Christina Carano, has supported marriage equality. They were one of the straight couples who refused to wed until same-sex couples could. In 2011, he told an audience, "We can’t get married until [same-sex] marriage is legal and equal ... I think giving people the right to marry will be a huge movement in civil rights.”
His 2012 album Love Is a Four Letter Word featured the word love in rainbow colors on its cover.
Whether he has actually come out or not, fedora lovers everywhere are celebrating.

just read a post on tumblr with a list of #bisexual celebrities/historical figures. never thought i'd see Jason Mraz & Socrates in the same list, but it made me giggle.

Perhaps this is Mraz's way of telling the LGBT community "I'm Yours."
