A pomosexual is a person who rejects conventional labels of sexuality including heterosexual, homosexual, and bisexual. The term comes from a blending of the terms pomo, short for postmodern, and sexual. It entered the mainstream lexicon after the publication of Carol Queen and Lawrence Shimel’s 1997 anthology, Pomosexuals: Challenging Assumptions about Gender and Sexuality.
Pomosexuality is not a defined sexual orientation. In fact, it may be better understood as a nonorientation because pomosexuals believe that sexuality, as it’s conventionally understood, is not applicable.
