Lib Dem MP Layla Moran has come out as pansexual.

The Oxford West and Abingdon MP is considered to be a likely party leadership contender after Jo Swinson stepped down after the shocking defeat in the general election in December.

Taking to Twitter, Moran posted an image of her partner and revealed she ‘never even considered’ she would ever have a relationship with a woman.

She wrote: “2020 is a new decade and a new path in my journey.

“Last year I fell in love with a wonderful woman. Something I’d never even considered before. Now I am just happy #Pansexual #OutAndProud”

Pansexual is the sexual, romantic or emotional attraction towards people regardless of their sex or gender identity.

According to TheyWorkForYou.com, Moran has a track record of being an ally of the LGBTQ community and consistently voted for gay rights, voted in favour of marriage equality and voted for laws to promote equality and human rights.
