Omniromantic is an emerging term.
Omniromantic is a term that has recently emerged. Although the term may be growing in usage, and is significant and well-sourced enough to warrant inclusion on this wiki, it may still be relatively unknown outside of the platform or community where it originated. The exact definition and name may not have stabilized, and may change significantly as more people identify with it.

Omniromantic is a romantic orientation where a person is attracted to all genders,[1][2] sometimes with a preference for certain genders.[1][3][4] It is often grouped with other romantic orientations that involve attraction to multiple genders, such as biromantic, polyromantic, and panromantic.[5]

Etymology[]

Omniromantic uses the Latin prefix omni-, which means "all" or "universally",[6] and thus represents the range of genders that someone who is omniromantic can be attracted to.

Community[]

Omnisexual and Omniromantic Pride and Visibility Day is said to be observed on July 6th.[7][8] However, at least one source cites the same date as being for Omnisexual Awareness Day instead.[9]

Flag[]

The omniromantic flag was made available online as early as May 9th, 2016. The creator and specific color meanings are unknown.[10] Based purely on its design, it may have the same color meanings as the omnisexual flag, with an additional heart overlay to represent romantic attraction.

Distinction[]

Biromantic[]

Biromantic, similar to bisexuality, is often defined as having romantic attraction towards two or more genders. This differs from omniromantic in that the latter can be attracted to all genders, not just a certain number of them.[1]

Polyromantic[]

Polyromantic is where a person is romantically attracted to multiple genders, but not necessarily all of them like with someone who is omniromantic.[1]

Panromantic[]

Panromantic is defined as having romantic attraction to all genders, similar to omniromantic. They are sometimes even used interchangeably.[1][2] However, the main difference between the two is that omniromantic can also include preferences for certain specific genders.[1][3][4]
