The under-the-radar Hot Body of 2008 Jason Mraz might be the type of guy who is sexually attracted to more than one type of genitals. 40-year-old Jason has been a staunch supporter of the LBGTQ community for a while now and penned a love letter-type poem to the queer nation for Billboard celebrating Pride Month. And he closed it with an interesting line.
“I am bi your side.”
Play on words or into more than one gender? Jason is Canadian, and they’re inherently nice people outside of the hockey rink (Canadian hockey players are usually missing teeth and they are more than willing to make their opponents look like them) so he could have been just being cute and supportive. Or he’s not looking to restrict himself to vagine.
He’s hinted several times in the past that he’d be fine with trying out dudes and was just about dating his gay best friend according to a 2005 interview.
“It wasn’t until we were out for dinner on Valentines Day that I realised 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.”
He added: “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.”
Because representation of bisexuality (at least when it comes to guys) in the entertainment industry borders on nil, there was rejoicing throughout the land. And people have already begun to ship Jason and Nico Tortella. Ok, that was just me.
JASON MRAZ IS BI, Y'ALL https://t.co/vOkLSsWwya

This news sorta, almost makes up for the prevalence of “I’m Yours” in every portion of our lives since 2008. It really doesn’t, but it softens my hatred of that song if the singer might be crooning to a dude.
Here’s Jason’s poem in its entirety:
You have inspired me.
You showed me what strength is.
You demonstrated courage over and over again.
You risked so much for love.
You never compromised your expression
Your rights and freedoms were being compromised.
You stood up for me.
You stood up for the world.
And now the world is better because of you.
We still have a long way to go
I am bi your side.
