38 TV And Movie Characters That Made Bisexuals Feel Seen

We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which fictional characters from TV and film made them feel seen as a bisexual and their answers did not disappoint!

Here’s are some of their favorites:


Darryl Whitefeather from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

The CW

“He’s a middle-aged divorcé with a young daughter, which is something you never see on TV. He sings an anthem about being bi and how he’s not ‘choosing a side.’ Also, after he announces he’s bi, he doesn’t become the butt of jokes.

Throughout the course of the show, he’s also shown to date both men and women — none are shown to be destructive, and they don’t make his sexuality the cause of any issues that occur in the relationships.” —domn3


Tara Thornton from True Blood


“She’s been with both women and men, and the actress that plays her, Rutina Wesley, is the same way!” —felishamariej


Clarke Griffin from The 100

The CW

“She falls in love with men and women, but her sexuality is never at the forefront of the show. It’s never addressed directly, but just a part of her that everyone accepts. It made me realize that owning your sexuality doesn’t change who you are at heart.” —kyrad4f4209217


Bo Dennis from Lost Girl


“They never even mention her sexuality, she just goes around being a badass succubus, sleeping with whoever she wants, THEN she gets stuck in a love triangle with a human woman and a werewolf dude!” —jenniferb227


Rosa Diaz from Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Nbc / Vivian Zink / NBC

“I always loved her character, and when you learn she’s bisexual, she doesn’t become a different character — she’s still Rosa, just now you know she likes men and women. It was actually shortly after seeing the episode where she comes out that I finally decided to publicly come out as bisexual myself. Then a few months ago I learned the actor who plays Rosa, Stephanie Beatriz, is actually bisexual in real life, and I cried. It made it feel more meaningful to me — that she wasn’t playing a role of a bisexual character, but she was an actor who happens to be bisexual portraying things that myself, possibly herself, and I’m sure other real bisexuals, have gone through and felt.” —d45910073b


Star Butterfly from Star vs. the Forces of Evil

Disney XD

“Star Butterfly has perfectly represented bisexuality in your teen years! She’s been presented as bisexual several times in the show’s run! In the episode pictured above, the animators even drew a rainbow with the colors of the bisexual flag in her eyes! The show itself is also just hilarious and so positive, with great animation.” —abigaeljoyceanderson


Sara Lance from Arrow

The CW

“Her character is a badass in general, and they showed her in relationships with men and women like it was completely normal (which it is). She didn’t have any crazy, dramatic coming-out scene and her character arc and identity is not completely focused on her sexuality…proving people’s lives and identities are so much more than their sexualities.” —ameliai4c29f558e


Mazikeen from Lucifer


“Her storyline with Amenadiel and Eve felt so natural. Everyone supported her and it didn’t have that ‘queer shock factor’ approach, which was relieving. Normalizing bisexuality (and any other sexuality) is SO important. Lucifer does it RIGHT.” —whatthefreak


Villanelle from Killing Eve

Parisa Taghizadeh / BBC America

“She may be a psychopathic assassin, but when it comes to her sexuality the show has executed it extremely well. The show is casual about it. In the first episode it is implied that she slept with a woman and a man, and in the following episodes, there are many moments casually depicting her sexuality.

The show is unapologetic about Villanelle, and her obsession with the other main character, Eve. The romance between the two women is at the center of the show, which makes this representation so good, because it’s something tangible and real and makes us viewers feel validated.” —pollyw430ed7679


Azima Kandie from The Last Ship


“Even though her interaction with Alisha Granderson was brief before she and Wolf got together, I got awesome vibes from those few seconds. ‘Keep yourself turned on.'” —nguniprincess


Valkyrie from Thor: Ragnarok

Walt Disney Studios

“I wish we got more of her, but I knew and felt Valkyrie from Thor: Ragnarok was as bi as the day was long. I hadn’t had my own sort of ‘representation’ moment, but I felt it as soon as I realized who Valkyrie was and is. Bi pride!”



Bob Belcher from Bob’s Burgers


“Bob Belcher is a low-key bisexual icon. He casually addresses his sexuality in the episode ‘Turkey in a Can,’ when he talks to the deli cashier. I found it amazing that he finds men attractive and is also happily married to his wife, Linda. Before that, I’d been taught that you could only really have eyes for your significant other.” —shadeofblue


Oberyn Martell from Game of Thrones


Toni Topaz from Riverdale

The CW

“Toni was just a perfect bisexual character on TV, as she showed a vast range of emotions and was never afraid of her identity.” —prettyinpurple264


Callie Torres from Grey’s Anatomy


“She fell in love with a man and then caught feels for a woman. It wasn’t out of nowhere or dramatic, because being bisexual is normal.” —calliew41ae575c1


Valencia Perez from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

The CW

“She discovers that she’s bi later in life and it’s never an issue.”



Quentin Coldwater from The Magicians


“I especially loved that they didn’t make a big deal or reveal about it. Sure, it was revealed during a threesome with two of the hottest characters on the show and it caused a lot of turmoil with his girlfriend, but no one really batted an eyelash that there was a guy involved.” —vermor


John Constantine from Constantine

The CW

“He’s flirty, but not defined by his sexuality. Him being burdened by his past mistakes is the relatable part. The awesome thing is, in the show, his kiss with a man literally saved the time and universe!” —chortlingchode


Shirin from Appropriate Behavior

Peccadillo Pictures

“I could relate to her fear of coming out to her parents and how it affected her life. For the sake of self-preservation, she had to perform this unstable balancing act. It kept her from being able to fully embrace her identity and have fulfilling relationships with men and women alike. As a bisexual woman from a conservative, religious family, this meant a lot.” —whatadickens


Bill Pargrave from Killing Eve

BBC America

“It’s so rare to see a middle-aged man, who is also a parent, come out so casually and easily. It made me so happy to see the representation. ANYONE can be bisexual, it doesn’t have an age or a gender, and that reminder was so important to me.” —freyar48f58cc99


Fleabag from Fleabag


Fleabag did it really well and casually. Fleabag typically dates guys, but hits on a woman, and when asked if she’s straight, she replied, ‘Not strictly.’ It’s so amazing seeing casual representation and a reminder that bisexuality is not necessarily always a 50/50 gender attraction split.” —freyar48f58cc99


Kelly from Black Mirror‘s “San Junipero”

Laurie Sparham

“She still had so much love for her late husband and they were happily married, but she also found love with Yorkie, a girl she met in San Junipero. The show made an amazing point that Kelly could still have completely legitimate love for her husband, but fall in love with a girl and go on with her life.” —freyar48f58cc99


Captain Jack Harkness from Doctor Who


“Such great representation. It’s so amazing to see relationships like that just casually presented without labels or real discussion…just completely normal.”



Nolan Ross from Revenge


“He had genuine chemistry with the men and women he was involved with on the show and his sexuality didn’t seem forced by the writers, just to have a non-straight character. It made sense and felt natural.” —connord42c4e1ce2


Marissa Cooper from The O.C.


“I don’t think they ever explicitly use the word ‘bisexual,’ but she was in a fairly serious (for teenagers at least) relationship with Olivia Wilde’s character, even telling her mom so it could be ‘real’ for them. She just kind of falls into it naturally, with no shame or confusion. It’s really rare to see that in media; it usually has to be a big deal, but it’s not always like that in really life.” —okaykaylyn


Princess Bubblegum and Marceline the Vampire Queen from Adventure Time

Cartoon Network

“Watching them kiss in a cartoon made for kids really made me cry as a closeted bisexual teen, who grew up watching only straight characters on kids TV.” —amarshall04


Angela Montenegro from Bones


“She is completely and unapologetically herself. She does what she wants and only what she wants. She’s a great influence on how you should make the decisions in your life that work for you, because you’re the one living your life.”



Korra and Asami Sato from The Legend of Korra


“Korra had flaws and struggled with her mental health in the series, which I found really relatable. When she and Asami began getting closer and the writers confirmed they were a couple, I felt really seen. I realized I was bi around that same time, so Korra really gave me someone I could look up to. Two badass bi women of color.” —ashtonb4848a5771


Gael Martinez from Good Trouble


“It would be a shame not to include him.” —benoit1001


Emily Foster from Chicago Fire


“She casually dated both men and women, and her friends didn’t make a big deal of it or even mention that classic bisexual threesome trope. It was refreshing to say the least.” —haleyg42657e7d3


Nico Minoru from Runaways


“She starts off as the love interest of the main male character, but surprise, she ends up dating a cute little alien lesbian!” —princxssdancingsxnshine


Nola Darling from She’s Gotta Have It

David Lee / David Lee/Netflix

“I have issues with how she handles both her professional and romantic life in Season 2, but Season 1 is a great example of bisexuality and ethical polyamory. Nola has three and then four partners that she is very clear and establishes boundaries with.” —mikareader


Petra Solano from Jane the Virgin

The CW

“Petra, hands down, had the best and most relatable coming-out story, EVER! The reaction and support from all the other characters was so heartwarming, too.”



Alyssa Jones from Chasing Amy

View Askew Productions

“I discovered the film the same time I was discovering my sexuality. Plus, her explanation for why she was bisexual was so perfect:

‘And while I was falling for you I put a ceiling on that, because you were a guy. Until I remembered why I opened the door to women in the first place: to not limit the likelihood of finding that one person who’d complement me so completely. And for me, that makes all the difference.'” —m4f7d893b9


Brittany Pierce from Glee


“She didn’t have a huge coming-out storyline and that’s why I relate. When I knew I was bisexual, I was like, okay, this is who I am. I didn’t fuss over it, I wasn’t confused — I knew who I was. She knew she loved Santana, but could also love Sam. Her confidence in her sexuality is what makes me relate to her.”



Remy “Thirteen” Hadley from House


“Thirteen was the first bisexual I saw on TV and she was so unapologetic about it. She also taught her coworker, Wilson, a thing or two when he assumed all bisexuals love threesomes. She showed me that you can be something other than straight and make it in the world.” —nicolew468e76b8


Pam Poovey from Archer


“I know she’s pretty wild and out-there, but she’s a plus-size, bisexual woman who doesn’t limit herself. She’s loud, crude, smokes weed and sleeps with a lot of her coworkers, and she makes me laugh all the time. It was so refreshing to have a bigger, bisexual woman represented and they never made a big deal about it — it’s just who she is. ” —hellbunnyofdoom
