Sharon Osbourne recently made tabloid headlines for coming out as bisexual after she opened up about her sexuality on “The Talk.” The only problem? She never actually said she was bisexual.
The incident highlighted just how much confusion there can be around sexual identity and also served as a reminder of how little many people know about what it really means to be and identify as bisexual.
When they aren’t being forgotten about, erased or misunderstood, bisexuals are often characterized as greedy, hypersexual or indecisive in mainstream culture, the media and in the queer community.
But bisexuality absolutely is a valid sexual orientation, and one just as worthy of celebration and visibility as any other identity.
One way to foster more discussion and understanding of the identity is to highlight the lives and experiences of bisexual people, especially highly visible ones. Below, check out 28 celebrities who have spoken out about being bisexual.
