Jason Mraz may have come out as bisexual in a love poem to the LGBTQ community for Pride month.

Mraz, 40, penned the poem as part of Billboard’s “Love Letter to the LGBTQ Community” series.

“We still have a long way to go. But know. I am bi your side. All ways,” Mraz writes.

Mraz is a longtime supporter of LGBTQ rights. In 2010, he and his then- fiancée Tristan Prettyman refused to get married until same-sex marriage was legal. The couple ended up breaking off their engagement and Mraz married Christina Carano in 2015.

The “I’m Yours” singer has been open about his attraction to men in the past although he has never officially come out as bisexual. In a 2005 interview, he explained he found himself attracted to his gay best friend.

“It wasn’t until we were out for dinner on Valentines Day that I realized we both we’re having a very romantic time together. Right before I moved to California he gave me a pretty strong willed kiss goodbye, which I have never experienced before. Unfortunately, he had a little bit more facial hair than I like,” Mraz said. “I have a bisexually open mind, but I have never been in a sexual relationship with a man. If the right one came along, then sure.”

Even though Mraz’s poem wasn’t a clear coming out some fans took the poem as a declaration of his sexuality.
