Celebrating 12 Bisexual Trailblazers in Cinema
It's no secret that the silver screen has had a long, rocky road towards true bisexual representation. Over half a century ago, the 1964 film Goldfinger introduced Pussy Galore, whose controversial sexuality became one of the first major representations of bisexuality in cinema--but at a heavy price. As a lesbian turned Bond girl, she was described as being "cured" by James Bond when he finally takes her to bed. Fifty-three years later, bisexuality has been approached in cinema in a variety of forms and culminated in Charlize Theron's sexually fluid action hero Lorraine Broughton in this year's Atomic Blonde.
As we celebrate GLAAD's Bisexual Awareness Week, we're taking a look back on the pioneering bisexual characters who queered up cinema. They've been complicated, moving and alluring. From Pussy Galore and Dr. Frank N. Furter to Celie Harris Johnson and Lorraine Broughton and so many others, these are our favorite bisexual trailblazers in film.
