Miley Cyrus isn鈥檛 exactly known for being shy, but that doesn鈥檛 mean it still doesn鈥檛 take a certain degree of braveness to be totally honest at times. She obviously makes it one of her utmost goals in life to be upfront and open with her fans, and Miley has just made a bold confession on National Coming Out Day. Not only was her first relationship NOT with Nick Jonas when she was just 13 years old, as many believe, but it was actually with a girl.

Though Miley has been open in the past about her sexuality, this is the first time she鈥檚 talked about her relationship with another girl when she was younger. In a new interview with Variety, Miley admits, 鈥淢y whole life, I didn鈥檛 understand my own gender and my own sexuality.鈥

That all changed when she was 10 or 11 years old. 鈥淢y eyes started opening in the fifth or sixth grade. My first relationship in my life was with a chick.鈥

Though she doesn鈥檛 reveal who this gal was (rightfully, as they were just kids and it鈥檚 a private sitch), she does acknowledge that this revelation doesn鈥檛 mean she鈥檚 gay. Nor does the fact that she鈥檚 engaged to Liam Hemsworth mean she鈥檚 straight. And if you鈥檙e thinking bisexual, that doesn鈥檛 quite work for Miley either.

鈥淚 think the LGBTQ alphabet could continue forever,鈥 Miley says. 鈥淏ut there鈥檚 a 鈥楶鈥 that should happen, for 鈥榩ansexual.鈥欌 That鈥檚 how Miley feels most comfortable defining herself, as someone who is attracted to a person regardless of their gender identity.

Keep that open vibe going, Miley! And to everyone else celebrating National Coming Out Day, we totally support you!
