In the middle of Pride month, Outer Banks star Madison Bailey (Kiara) just came out as pansexual via TikTok and introduced the world to her new girlfriend.
Bailey confirmed the news in a TikTok video where she explained pansexuality and how she loves “girls, boys, trans boys, trans girls and nonbinary babies,” to the beat of Princess Nokia’s “I Like Him.”
FYI, pansexuality refers to a romantic and/or sexual attraction towards people regardless of their sex or gender identity. As Bailey says in the video, it’s not about what they look like, “it’s what’s on the inside boo.”
A few days later, Bailey revealed she’s dating Mariah Linney in a follow up TikTok about the struggles of trying to not fall for someone (oh, mood). In the clip, the Outer Banks star is seen lip syncing the words “I’m not falling” in various shots and outfits before shrugging, admitting “okay, I’m falling” and revealing and hugging her new boo.
An yes, it’s very cute.
And, ngl, they are incredibly cute together. Over on Linney’s TikTok, the pair post couple TikTok choreo vids and are in perfect sync. They just seem like really good friends, y’know, and who doesn’t want that in a partner?
We ship it, and the 100 percent undying queer love Linney has for her girlfriend in this video.
Over on Instagram, the couple shared an adorable series of pics announcing they’re dating. Styled in matching denim and Nike Air Jordans, we really have no choice but to stan.
Congrats, Madison, and happy Pride!
