These 7 bisexual celebrities proudly identify and embrace their bisexuality.

1. Andy Mientus

For those who aren’t familiar with Mientus, he’s an incredibly talented stage and TV actor best known for his role as Kyle Bishop in the television series Smash and Hartley ‘Pied Piper’ Rathaway in The Flash.  He’s commented on a note he wrote to himself years ago in which he denied his bisexuality, calling guys who come out as bi an “instant closet case.” He writes why he felt this way (the lack of bi visibility) and acknowledges how much he has grown since. (You can read the heartfelt post here.)

2. Nico Tortorella

The Younger star came out as “sexually fluid.” Shortly after, they proudly claimed the bisexual label. They noted, while discussing their sexuality on The View earlier this year, “I think the most flack I get — and other bisexual friends I have get — is actually from inside the [LGBTQ] community, and not from straight people.”

3. Aaron Carter

Carter has made quite a splash when he came out as bisexual in a heartfelt note on Twitter. He wrote about his attraction to both men and women, saying, “There’s something I’d like to say that I feel is important for myself and my identity that has been weighing on my chest for nearly half of my life. This doesn’t bring me shame, just a weight and burden I have held onto for a long time that I would like lifted off me.”

4. Frank Ocean

Ocean has been vocal about being attracted to both men and women for the past few years. He released a single, “Chanel,” which had been hailed a “bisexual anthem.” Ocean sings, “I see both sides like Chanel,” referencing the label’s logo, which has two overlapping C’s. Ocean sees the beauty in femininity, masculinity and everything in between.

5. Alan Cumming

Cumming has not only dated but actually been married to both a man and a woman (at different times, of course). He’s also acknowledged that even when in a monogamous relationship with one person, your attractions to other genders don’t magically disappear. Hence why it’s still appropriate to claim the bisexual label even when married or otherwise committed. (Also see our recent chats with Cumming — about his role in the new film Battle of the Sexes and his responsibility to tell queer stories, and about his latest venture, the  NYC East Village bar Club Cumming.)

6. Billie Joe Armstrong

I thought it necessary to include this Green Day lead singer on our list because he has been using the ‘B word’ for over two decades now. He really was one of the first to fully embrace the label. He said in an interview with The Advocate in 1995, “I think I’ve always been bisexual. I mean, it’s something that I’ve always been interested in. I think people are born bisexual, and it’s just that our parents and society kind of veer us off into this feeling of ‘Oh, I can’t.’ They say it’s taboo. It’s ingrained in our heads that it’s bad, when it’s not bad at all. It’s a very beautiful thing.”

7. David Bowie

I had only planned on including men who were currently alive, but I felt obligated to include Bowie. While Billie Joe Armstrong came out nearly two decades ago, this rock ‘n’ roll superhero confirmed in the September 1976 issue of Playboy, “It’s true — I am bisexual. But I can’t deny that I’ve used that fact very well. I suppose it’s the best thing that ever happened to me.”
