What did Tammy say to Jerry?

Tammy started the potentially awkward conversation by telling Jerry she had something to tell him.

After Jerry said that she could tell him anything, Tammy said: “I am pansexual.”

Jerry looked confused and asked what that meant.

I would date anybody whether they’re transgender, straight, gay.

“It means love is love,” she replied.

“I would date anybody whether they’re transgender, straight, gay.’

Asked if she would date a transgender man, Tammy said: “Yeah. Or girl. It’s about how they make me feel, not how they look.”

How did Jerry react to the news?

Tammy revealed that she reassessed her sexuality after talking to a pansexual friend.

On a clip released by TLC, she said: “I asked her what it meant.

“It means you love everybody, not just the same sex. And I was like ‘I guess I am too’ because I wouldn’t mind being with someone that’s transgender.”
