Omnisexuality (sometimes referred to as pansexuality[1]) is a sexual orientation characterized by the potential for sexual attraction, regardless of their gender identity or biological sex. Thus, omnisexuality includes potential attraction to people who do not fit into the gender binary of male/female (despite a common ideology trans people mtf or fem sill fit into the binary). 

For the new global vision on sexuality please see:, or go to world's greatest site on Human Sexology: and click on LINKS and then on SEXUAL ORIENTATION. Thank you.

The word omnisexual is derived from the latin prefix omni-, meaning "all". "All" is specifically in reference to genders.
