The Year in Bisexual Invisibility

TOM DALEYX633 0

A few A-list celebrities came out as bisexual, then changed their tune a bit later. First Tom Daley (above) appeared to come out as bisexual, only to say a few months later he was actually gay. Jessie J called her bisexuality a “phase,” and Mel B discounted a five-year relationship she had with a woman. It’s not unusual for some to come out as bisexual first, but it does play into a “bi now, gay later” fallacy that makes life harder for actual bisexuals who want to come out. Calling bisexuality a “phase” is hurtful and only adds to erasure of bisexual people.
