A large percentage of the LGBTQ+ community consists of bisexual people. But they still don’t get the social attention and acceptance they need in many societies. Bisexuality means being attracted to people of two genders, not just the opposite or the same sex. So the trans men and women, cis men and women, and genderfluid people also fall under this umbrella.
The Conditions Bisexual People Face
The dating dilemma for bisexuals has long been the topic of debate in many studies and discussions. Some of them experience abusive relationships because of dating the wrong partner, while others see many disrespects from their co-workers in the workplace.
When it comes to online dating, similar problems are common for many of these men and women. That is especially true when they use mainstream dating platforms in which straight people don’t accept orientations other than what they are. But this group of members, including those who look for bisexual hookups on dating sites, should be able to talk about their sexuality and find their best match freely.
With that in mind, the most effective solution for this problem seems to increase the general knowledge about these orientations. Luckily, many famous names in highly visible entertainment have taken steps to reveal the truth about their orientations over the past years. As a result, the news about these people get spread widely, and that’s a positive move to get people more familiar with this concept.
So let’s get down to a quick overview of some bisexual celebrities and what they’ve revealed about themselves.
It seems that Ronen Rubinstein got comfortable with his real sexual orientation after playing as a gay character on 9-1-1: Lone Star, FOX’s LGBTQ-inclusive TV series. He opened up the subject in an interview with Variety and identified himself as someone bisexual. Ronen said he has a good feeling he has finally talked about it publicly.
As we mentioned earlier about the problems of bisexuals on online dating services, these people are not welcomed in all societies, and Ronen comes from one of them. He said that he was aware of his orientation in high school but couldn’t talk to anyone about it.
Olivia Ponton is a social media superstar with millions of followers on TikTok and Instagram. In an interview with Teen Vogue, she announced that she’s bisexual and proud of being a member of the LGBTQ+ community.
She said that it hadn’t crossed her mind to be a bisexual before moving to Los Angeles. It all began after she met Kaila Novak through TikTok. Olivia holds a very positive view of bisexuality. She also advises younger girls that it’s okay not to know their exact sexuality until they get older.
The gorgeous actress, Lili Reinhart, famous for appearing in The CW’s series, talked about her bisexuality in an interview with Flaunt Magazine. She said in that interview that she’s known about her orientations for many years. But she didn’t want to be accused of saying so for attention.
Lili had been attracted to other women from a young age, and her close friends and family have long been aware of it. Lili has also announced that on her Instagram stories while supporting the protests about black lives.
Emma Corrin, who played the role of Princess Diana on The Crown‘s fourth season, mentioned in one of her Instagram captions that she’s queer. Immediately after that, she updated her pronouns to “she/they.”
In an interview with ITV, she talked about her sexuality publicly for the first time. She said she wasn’t sure whether it was right, but she saw wonderful feedback from the queer community members. Emma believes people should make these orientations visible soon and avoid spending too much time thinking about right or wrong.
Demi Lovato announced to be a non-binary and used “they/them” pronouns. Demi has generally been open about their private life and finally revealed to be pansexual. The fact was revealed during an interview on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”
Demo said that they feel very fluid and don’t know whether they end up with a guy or not. They also added that they had heard people calling the LGBTQIA+ community the mafia of the alphabet, and that’s what they’re proud to be a part of. So they’re going with it.
Bisexuality is a common sexual orientation among men and women, and these people should have nothing to hide while dating online or talking to others about relationships. Experts feel optimistic about the future of the social acceptance of these people, especially as more and more famous people are revealing these appeals in them.
