What no Jason or Eric??? Well at lease theres Alcide!
This past weekend at Nashville Pride Vanessa Carlton followed in the footsteps of female celebs like Lady Gaga, Anna Paquin, and Megan Mullally and came out as bisexual. Congrats! But why is this well-intentioned announcement always made by ladies? Aren’t there any bi guys?
Bisexual women are especially powerful because people don’t really care if a female has fluid sexuality. In fact, most straight guys would actually prefer imagining that Anna Paquin will not only sleep with them, but will bring her best girlfriend over for a three-way. Yes, there is nothing icky about lady-on-lady action. This is not true in the hetro world with male-on-male loving,.
It’s a horrible double standard and it’s one I think we should end. How? Well, we need some famous dudes to come out as bi and be LOUD and PROUD! We know you’re out there, guys. And even if you’re not, can’t you pull a Gaga and just pretend for the sake of the cause? Thanks!
A few months back after doing a PSA for gay advocacy group “True Colors First” Anna Paquin announced that she was bisexual.
“I’m not someone who endlessly talks about her personal life for no reason, but obviously, as someone who identifies as bisexual, those are issues I really care about — and frankly, I don’t see why everyone doesn’t care about them. So when I was asked to participate in that PSA (for True Colors First), it was just an obvious, ‘Well, of course I will.'”
Anna, is engaged to her ‘True Blood’ costar Stephen Moyer and said that her coming out was no surprise to those close to her.
“It wasn’t like it was a big secret,” she said. “It was just a cause I cared about and privately supported, but not one that I had ever had an opportunity to speak out about in a way that would be useful. Obviously I know that one person’s voice doesn’t necessarily do that much, but I just wanted to do my bit.”
Now if only Ryan Kwanten or Alexander Skarsgard would come out too! (not saying they are, just wishful thinking on my part) sigh.
In a new PSA for the True Colors Fund, Anna Paquin, who is engaged to True Blood co-star Stephen Moyer, says she is bisexual.
“Our source tells us that people close to Paquin, who were at the shoot, did not know she was going to make the statement, and it was a surprise to them. ing they ‘Give A Damn’ about equality as they too publicly declare their sexuality, be it straight, gay or bisexual. The True Colors Fund is the non-profit arm of the True Colors Tour. Co-founded by Cyndi Lauper, the organization, according to it’s website, is dedicated ‘to inspire and engage everyone, particularly the straight community, to become active participants in the advancement of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) equality and ensure a strong and vibrant LGBT community.'”
Good going Sookie!
