Now, more than ever, representation matters! Reality TV has boomed and its LGBTQ+ stars have household names.

But there’s an abundance of bisexual and pansexual stars as well, meaning that they don’t just find love with the same sex but instead can find it with anyone. And more love in this world can only be a good thing.

When Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star Moniece Slaughter came out as bisexual, her father disowned her. This is just the type of painful experience that resonates with younger bisexual viewers looking for representation and perhaps guidance in their own struggle. Said Slaughter, "I used to feel so hurt. Then I felt angry. Then I felt slightly empathetic. Now I feel literally nothing about the matter. It took a while.”

Courtney Act — the stage name of gender-queer drag performer Shane Jenek — identifies as pansexual. Act told Attitude that “It’s important to acknowledge bisexual, pansexual.

Queer Eye star Antoni Porowski is the food and wine connoisseur on the hit Netflix series. Porowski was quick to point out to The Gay Times that he doesn’t like labels of any sort — but that he’s more pansexual than anything else. “Some people want to define themselves, and they should as it’s part of their identity,” he said. “For me personally, I’ve never really had a label for myself… So even being called bisexual… I remember in my early twenties I was like, ‘But bisexual means I can only like girls and guys, what if I like something else?’ Maybe it’s just my rebellious nature. I’m me, I’m Antoni, and I’m all these things.”

I guess it basically is bisexual. But I don't want to narrow myself down to two sexes or genders. 'Fluid' would be more open to everything — not just male or female”.
