17 Times TV Characters Actually Said They Were Bisexual

"It doesn't take an intellectual to get that I'm bisexual!"

There's been a big increase in bisexual characters on TV over the past years, and it's amazing.

The CW

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.

NBC

The Good Place cast confirmed that Eleanor is "super bisexual," but her character never directly called herself bi.

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:

1. Miles Hollingsworth, Degrassi: Next Class

Netflix

2. Darryl Whitefeather, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

4. Polo Benavent, Elite

Netflix

5. Anna Taggaro, One Tree Hill

6. Callie Torres, Grey's Anatomy

ABC

7. Adam Alvaro, Jane the Virgin

The CW

8. Madeline Scott, Proven Innocent

9. Gael Martinez, Good Trouble

Freeform

10. Remy "Thirteen" Hadley, House

11. Adam Groff, Sex Education

Netflix

12. Petra Solano, Jane the Virgin

The CW

13. Brittany Pierce, Glee

Fox

14. Maya, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

15. Michael Guerin, Roswell, New Mexico

16. Blake Moran, Madam Secretary

17. And finally, Moose Mason, Riverdale

The CW

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.
