16 TV Characters You Maybe Didn’t Know Were Bisexual

By  | 


For too long Hollywood has been criticised for its lack of diversity, most notably with regards to race and sexuality. Most onscreen romances are heterosexual, and when they’re not, the relationship usually takes place between minor characters who are not adequately portrayed, and too often fall into stereotypes — GLAAD has previously referred to some of these as “defamatory representations.”

It’s no secret that the entertainment industry is in desperate need of parts that are more diverse. That said, some of the most popular TV shows — from Modern Family to the O.C. — have featured characters with more complex sexual relationships than you may not have realized. Below are 16 memorable characters who are actually bisexual… or at least fall somewhere in between “straight” and “gay” as we know it.
