romantic attraction towards person(s) of any, every, and all genders (panromanticism)

Panromanticism is a romantic orientation. A panromantic person has romantic attraction to people, regardless of gender.[1] Similar to biromantic, panromantic people can have any sexual orientation. The term panromantic is useful for asexual people to express their affection.[2] The term is related to pansexuality.[3][4]

The term was created in on-line communities, such as Asexual Visibility and Education Network.[5][6]
