23 TV Shows And Movies With Such Powerful Bisexual Energy That They Turned People Queer

"I literally walked out of the theatre saying – 'oh shit, I'm bi'."

Recently, we asked members of our Buzzfeed community which movie or TV show helped them realise they were bisexual. Here are some of the best responses:

1. Wonder Woman

Warner Bros. Pictures

"I’d been questioning for a while but watching Gal Gadot deflect bullets and jump out of buildings really clarified things for me."


"Seeing Gal Gadot and Chris Pine in all their glory; I literally walked out of the theatre saying – 'oh shit, I'm bi'."


"When Gal came out of that trench in the costume with her hair down being a total badass, I definitely realised then I liked women."


2. Buffy the Vampire Slayer

The WB

"During season six, I realised I had the same feelings seeing Willow and Tara in bed together as I did Buffy and Spike."


"Faith in Buffy – I simultaneously wanted to be her and be with her!"


3. Merlin


"I have always known I like men, but the thing that made me realise my undying love for women was Katie McGrath as Morgana Pendragon!"


4. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Universal Pictures

"When I was 10, I was deeply obsessed with Chris Evans as Lucas Lee in the movie, but the scene I replayed over and over was when Brie Larson as Envy Adams sang "Black Sheep" at a gig. I came out as bi five years later and realised just why I loved that scene so much."


5. Thor: Ragnarok

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

"The scene where Tessa Thompson struts up the catwalk in her Valkyrie battle armour, fireworks in the background, hair flowing, ready to kick butt. I was so flustered it even distracted me from Chris Hemsworth and his dreamy arms!"


6. Jennifer's Body

20th Century Fox

"I was already identifying myself as bi, but after watching this movie for the first time, I was sure like never before."


"My confirming moment when Jennifer says 'I go both ways'."


7. Mulan

Buena Vista Pictures

"Crushing on Mulan vs. Mulan as Ping vs. Li Shang. Yikes was I confused lol."


8. Little Women

Sony Pictures Releasing

"Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Timothée Chalamet, and Florence Pugh – a beautiful movie with beautiful actors!"


9. The 100

The CW

"For some reason, when I first started questioning my sexuality growing up I thought, 'well I like boys, so I can't be a lesbian', and kind of put an end to it. That was until I started watching The 100 lol. I felt kind of funny towards Clarke, and then when she got with Lexa it all made sense! Yay for bi representation!"


"I will say that watching The 100 for the first time and instantly developing a crush on Raven, and eventually on Murphy, really helped to push me out of denial."


10. The Mummy

Universal Pictures

"The Mummy and The Mummy Returns without a doubt shaped my sexuality way before I even realised it. '90s/'00s era Rachel Weisz (forever gorgeous) and Brendan Fraser – the greatest pairing anyone could dream of!"


"Oh The Mummy for sure – Evelyn being all prim and proper with that accent and those clothes, Rick being all macho and hilarious. Yes please!"


11. Scream

Dimension Films

"I was 12 when I watched it and realised I loved Neve Campbell the same way I loved Matthew Lillard!"


12. Any of the "Arrowverse" shows

CBS/The CW/Robert Voets/Warner Bros. Entertainment

"Whenever Supergirl and The Flash were in the same room together I was glued to the screen."


13. Victorious


"Beck and Jade were such a sexy and self-assured couple and I don't know... there was something kind of queer about them too? I just loved them together but I also fancied them as individuals! (I was younger then lol)."


14. Ocean’s 8

Warner Bros. Pictures

"Most of the movie left me feeling very sexually confused but also absolutely in love with Cate Blanchett."


"I could admire a beautiful woman before I saw this film, but this was the first time I’d had... physical reactions. Thanks Cate!"


15. Doctor Who


"It wasn’t even that I fancied both leads, but seeing Captain Jack kiss both Rose and The Doctor in the exact same way gave me a real 'wait, you can do that?' moment."


16. Labyrinth

TriStar Pictures

"The totally biconic answer is Labyrinth. Did I want to be Sarah or Jareth? Did I want to be with Sarah or Jareth? Both. All of the above. Goblin king, take me away!"


17. Avatar: The Last Airbender


"In hindsight, young me was very into both Katara and Zuko from ATLA, I just didn't realise it. I shipped them together, but I also shipped myself with each of them separately, and I also wanted to be both of them? It was a very complicated hypothetical love triangle."


18. Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones

20th Century Fox

"Padmé Amidala in a ripped up white catsuit! I realised aged eight in the cinema that this was something I was going to have to drunkenly confess to my parents – which I did, ten years later!"


19. The Office


"I’ve always loved Pam bunches, but I found myself crushing on Pam and Jim at the end of it all."


20. From Dusk till Dawn

Dimension Films

"George Clooney then holy mama Salma Hayek!"


21. Once Upon a Time


"Captain Hook and Merlin were definitely good-looking, but I literally fell in love with Regina Mills. I eventually came to terms with the fact that I wouldn’t say no to either."


22. The Vampire Diaries

The CW

"It helped me cement my bisexuality when I realised I was jealous of both Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder at the same time."


23. Pirates of the Caribbean

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

"I watched it as a kid and got very ~excited~ watching Kiera Knightley AND Orlando Bloom. For some reason, it took me a while to realise I was bisexual lol."


"I couldn't decide if I wanted to be Elizabeth feeling Will's fingers on her leg, or if I want to be Will feeling Elizabeth!"
