There’s been a big increase in bisexual characters on TV over the past years, and it’s amazing.
However, it’s still pretty rare for a TV character to say the words, “I’m bisexual,” or to even acknowledge that they like more than one gender.
But the good news is that more TV shows are starting to openly discuss bisexuality and even have characters directly come out as bisexual! Here are 17 characters who were out as bisexual:
Miles Hollingsworth, Degrassi: Next Class
Darryl Whitefeather, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
Rosa Diaz, Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Polo Benavent, Elite
Anna Taggaro, One Tree Hill
Callie Torres, Grey’s Anatomy
Adam Alvaro, Jane the Virgin
Madeline Scott, Proven Innocent
Gael Martinez, Good Trouble
Remy “Thirteen” Hadley, House
Adam Groff, Sex Education
Petra Solano, Jane the Virgin
Brittany Pierce, Glee
Maya, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
Michael Guerin, Roswell, New Mexico
Blake Moran, Madam Secretary
And finally, Moose Mason, Riverdale
Of course, a character never directly saying the words “I’m bisexual” doesn’t make their sexuality any less valid! But it’s still really nice to see more openly bi characters on TV — and I hope we get to see even more of them in the coming years.
