Happy Bisexual Awareness Week! To celebrate, we have rounded up some of our favorite bisexual kings we love and adore. Visibility matters!
The “Im Yours” singer came out as bisexual in 2018.
“I will admit that I probably spent the first close to 20 years of my career just broadcasting as hetero,” he told The Advocate. “You know, saying ‘girl’ in my songs, and a lot of that is growing up on a conservative street. And growing up around homophobia and feeling like I needed to protect some secret.”
He added, “I was having these curiosities and experiences on the side that were starting to influence who I am and the kind of fun I wanted to have in the world and the kind of person I wanted to be in the world, which is more honest and more loving and more inclusive.”
David Archuleta has come a long way when it comes to his relationship with his sexuality – and we could not be more proud! The “Crush” singer came out as “some kind of bisexual” in 2021.
After placing second on the reality singing competition, The Masked Singer, David said, “If anyone else has grown up, you know, feeling like they were bad just because of who they are attracted to and who they loved, I want you to know that it is worth taking the courage to show your true colors. It’s scary. But you’re worth it. You matter, and it’s so beautiful.”
In a Tumblr post shared by Frank in 2016, the singer opened up about a same-sex relationship he had when he was 19-years-old.

Billie Joe Armstrong
The lead singer/guitar player for Green Day also came out in an interview with The Advocate.
“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.”
Jack Dylan Grazer
The young Shazam! star came out in 2021 during an Instagram Live. Jack simply said, “Im bi” while answering a fan’s question and then followed it up by shouting, “Silenzio Bruno!” FYI, that’s a quote from his character in Pixar’s Luca.

In 2016, The Flash actor shared a heartfelt post about his sexuality on Instagram.
“Hey so it’s #biweek — the week for the Bi kids to be visible. I try to be visible all the time just by being true to who I am openly, but I know many people struggle with this because of the stigma associated with bi-ness. I know that some of you, probably friends even, are reading this and rolling your eyes — ‘oh, he’s still holding on to that? Who is SHE kidding?’ — and I don’t blame you. Not many are open about it so we appear to be very rare creatures, maybe even mythical.”

The Walking Dead star opened up about his bisexuality in 2017.

The Scottish actor has an entire section on his website dedicated to talking about his sexuality.
“I’m not here to change people’s minds about whether they believe in bisexuality. All I’m saying is that I think my sexuality and most people’s sexuality is gray. I am married to a man. I have a healthy sexual appetite and a healthy imagination. I also have an attraction to women. I’ve never lost it, actually.”
