LGBTQ+ representation is scarce and bisexuality is just one of many groups where it can be hard to find a TV character that identifies as such.
But there are still wonderful queer characters being written on a wide range of shows, and some even get to be revealed or introduced as bisexual down the line.
Now bisexual characters aren't always labeled as such, sometimes we have to figure out the small hints that are slipped into the show or we need to go outside of the show, checking to see what the cast/crew are saying.
Below is a slideshow that combines cofirmed bisexual characters with a selection of TV characters that may be or should be labeled as such.
Clarke Griffin - The 100
Clarke Griffin is the first bisexual female lead on The CW, that alone holds quite a weight on the importance she manages to bring to the show and her fans.
Clarke was shown to be interested in men and women throughout the four seasons of the show, and she continues to pave the way for a new kind of LGBTQ+ character storytelling.
Clarke’s sexuality isn’t her entire arc, in fact Clarke was the incredibly rare exception of a lead character that was established to be queer before the audience even knew, and that was revealed without her realizing it in front of us.
Clarke was just a badass lead on The 100 who happens to like men and women, it builds an interesting portrayal that will continue when the show returns for its 5th season during the midseason premieres.
Eric Jackson - The 100
Jackson may not have been confirmed to bisexual, in fact his sexuality wasn’t discussed much on or offscreen. But the pretty subtle interactions between Nathan Miller (also a queer character on the show) at least confirmed that Jackson likes men.
And watching more characters be revealed as already established members of the LGBTQ+ community is always great.
But there is one important part of Jackson’s previous seasons that I would like to inquire about, specifically his interactions with Abby. Now I’m not saying Jackson had a huge crush on his mentor, but I’m not not saying that.
Eretria - The Shannara Chronicles
There can never be enough badass ladies fighting the world and coming out on top, which is why Eretria is so freaking fantastic. She has been linked to both guys and girls, but outside of that she has her own journey that she is focused on.
The Shannara Chronicles ended its first season with Eretria in potential danger when she stumbles upon an unknown to the audience person.
Based off teasers and a trailer for the upcoming season that returns on the Spike Channel, Eretria will be back with a potential new girlfriend played by Vanessa Morgan.
Kat Edison - The Bold Type
Kat had no idea that pushing to interview Adena for Scarlet magazine in the pilot of The Bold Type would make her realize this part of herself that she never knew existed. Through her interactions with Adena, Kat Edison navigated her sexuality and came to realize that she wasn’t just into men.
Her interest in those two genders was acknowledged throughout the first season, and even though she is very committed to Adena, Kat continues to have one of the best portrayals of trying to figure out your sexuality, and that was only the beginning of the show.
The Bold Type has recently been renewed for two more seasons, and after the truly important moments shared between Kat/Adena, not to mention how remarkable the entire show is, there is nothing but promise for the show going forward.
Camille Engelson - Stitchers
There’s nothing like slipping into a conversation that you are not only interested in men, which is exactly what Camille did on Stitchers.
At first it seemed like that would be it, Camille would be an amazing member of the team who happened to like men and women, until the writers took it further by also giving us some necessary F/F representation.
Camille met Amanda and their chemistry was off the charts, even though they hit a few rough patches before they finally figured out how to make the relationship work.
Sadly Stitchers will not be returning, but it definitely needs to be, not only for Camille and Amanda even though they were a big part of why the show stood out so well.
Magnus Bane - Shadowhunters
Magnus Bane was an intriguing force from the moment he appeared on Shadowhunters. It was through his relationship with Alec though that we not only felt for him but also managed to pull inspiration from the confidance that Magnus offered.
He is a talented warlock and he is never ashamed of who he is, that never fails to be exciting to experience.
