Bisexual people don’t just love one gender, they love mutliple and sometimes all genders.
Bisexuals are often underrepresented or misrepresented in the media and this bi-erasure often fuels negative stereotypes about bisexuals such as, they don’t exist, they’re greedy or that they’re just in denial about being gay.
Bisexuality visbility is crucial to allow people to know that being bi is ok and that they’re not alone and there’s people out there who identify with the same sexuality they do.

15. Tyler Blackburn

“I’m queer. I’ve identified as bisexual since a teenager,” he said. “I just want to feel powerful in my own skin, and my own mind, and in my own heart.”
Bisexual visibility is crucial, as bi people are often portrayed with negative and rude stereotypes, there needs to be something in mainstream media that allows young people to know that being bisexual is ok.
These celebrities are all incredibly brave in speaking their truth publicly, and some have even feared backlash from doing so.
There are thousands of celebrities out there who aren’t on this list who are out publicly as bisexual, but all that means is that it should give you hope that there’s so many people out there like you, and it might be scary coming out, but hopefully these celebrities can give you the strenghth to do the same.
