Here we dig FEW TV Characters who’ve actually Said They Were Bisexual- On and OFF Screen

Rosa Diaz

As the controversy regarding the “BLACK LIVES MATTER” trend goes on, we look deeper into another topic, BISEXUALITY.  The world is so obsessed with defining sexuality for everyone and attaching labels to it. Any time any person openly leaves the sexual norm, their sexuality becomes, more often than not, the absolute defining characteristic of that person. It becomes the first thing people think about and often the first thing they mention. Every other part of that person all but disappears.

 “All you need to validly be bi is to identify! It’s so true it rhymes”

We witnessed a huge increase in bisexual characters on TV over the past decade and it’s bewildering.

1)  Rosa Diaz, Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Diaz’s storyline reminded me that my sexuality is valid and my love is authentic. Diaz is a leather jacket–wearing, motorcycle-driving crazy woman. She’s tough, smart and unapologetic. She never hesitates to break things around the office, make fun of her co-workers or even threaten them if they ask about her personal life. With her attitude and her permanent scowl, Diaz is downright intimidating. She’s one of the strongest female characters I’ve ever seen. Nobody dares cross her, and I love it.                                                Source- Google

It was hilarious and heart-warming to watch her character grow throughout the seasons, even embracing her softer side when she began dating Adrian Pimento in Season 3. When she came out as bisexual to the rest of the characters in Season 5, Episode 10, I was surprised how naturally it came up — and I can’t help but compare her coming-out to my own. When the internet started spreading rumours that Rosa Diaz was going to come out on Brooklyn 99, I shrugged it off as wishful thinking. I mean, it’s only been the main desire of my heart since I watched the pilot episode in 2013, and that desire only intensified when Stephanie Beatriz casually came out as bisexual on Twitter last year, but come on, it’s a network TV show that already has two Latina characters and a black gay character; no way was Fox going to let the writers make it more diverse. According to Beatriz, Rosa will, in fact, be talking about her love life again. She’s coming out to the whole squad in next week’s 100th episode and later on she’ll be coming out to her parents

2) Polo Benavent, Elite

On October 8th, 2016, screams of queer elation sounded across the internet: Sara Ramirez, Tony Award winner and star of Grey’s Anatomy, had just come out as bisexual. Some of us had respectfully restrained from speculating about the star’s sexual orientation for many years, but after viewing Ramirez’s incredible speech from the 40 to None Summit in which she described herself as a “multiracial woman, woman of color, queer, bisexual, Mexican-Irish American, immigrant” I couldn’t help but be among those jumping for joy. We knew it. I knew it, However, there is something particularly empowering in knowing that this singular, first incredible queer fictional role model is more than a construction of a writer’s room.

Since that fateful day in 2016, Ramirez has fully embraced her public persona as a bisexual activist, actor, and icon. In between continuing to support LGBTQ youth, conducting Instagram-accessible lectures on the misconceptions of bisexuality, and winning hearts in the cutest, queerest music video ever, Ramirez has created another undeniably queer role through Kat Sandoval on CBS’ Madam Secretary.

Dave Chappelle refuses to bend to transgender demands: ‘You will not summon me’

Dave Chappelle refuses to bend to demands from a group of transgender Netflix employees.

The comedian’s representatives announced he would meet with the employees after refusing to meet with them for weeks.

Chappelle joked he will meet with the Netflix employees – if they admit lesbian comedienne Hannah Gadsby isn’t funny.

Hannah is a male-identified lesbian who criticized Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos after he defended Chappelle’s Netflix special, The Closer.

The controversial comic, who is currently on a 10-city comedy tour, shared a video to Instagram from his Nashville show, in which he addressed the Netflix employees directly.

“To the transgender community, I am more than willing to give you an audience, but you will not summon me. I am not bending to anybody’s demands,” the Emmy winner says in the five-minute Instagram clip. Comments on the post appear to have been turned off.

He added:

“And if you want to meet with me, I’d be more than willing to, but I have some conditions. First of all, you cannot come if you have not watched my special from beginning to end. You must come to a place of my choosing at a time of my choosing, and thirdly, you must admit that Hannah Gadsby is not funny.”

In the Instagram video, Chappelle said he was disinvited from film festivals following The Closer backlash.

“Thank God for Ted Sarandos and Netflix, he’s the only one that didn’t cancel me yet.”

According to a source who was at the Nashville show, Dave started his set with a “statement” to those he’d offended, jokingly pulling out a piece of paper and reading “F**k y’all, n**gas!” TMZ reported.

Chappelle will air a documentary, “Untitled,” during his tour stops in 10 cities, including Atlanta on Nov. 21.

Angelina Jolie‘s uneven hair extensions went viral on Monday after she attended the Rome Film Festival on Sunday. Angelina’s hair extensions were the talk of Twitter.

The mom-of-six looked stunning in a strapless custom Atelier Versace platinum gown made from heritage metal mesh.

But it was the Eternals star’s hair extensions that got the attention of social media users.

Many on Twitter.com questioned why Angelina’s hair stylist chopped her extensions so badly.

“How do you let Angelina Jolie walk a red carpet with her hair extensions looking like this, somebody getting fired,” one user tweeted.

Another Twitter user wrote: “Well, maybe she had one of her kids do the extensions, which is kinda sweet.”

And a third person tweeted:

“The dress is perfection but did one of the children get angry and take a scissors to her hair in the middle of the night.”

Her older sister Zahara, 16, looked glamorous in a Grecian-inspired vintage dress from Catwalk Designer Vintage in L.A, according to PEOPLE magazine.

At the film’s Los Angeles premiere last week, Zahara also went for a vintage look, wearing her mum’s 2014 Ellie Saab Oscars dress.

It was Jolie’s first time in public after being forced to quarantine following a potential exposure to COVID following the L.A. premiere.

Angelina, who is fully vaccinated, and her Eternals co-stars Salma Hayek, Gemma Chan, Lauren Ridloff, and director Chloe Zhao, had to miss Elle’s Women in Hollywood event last week while they quarantined.
