A lot of bi news is not “real news” but gossip or social media comments from people in the public eye. Here’s our bi gossip roundup for July 2020.
Javicia Leslie was announced as the new Batwoman to replace Ruby Rose, .
Trampolining athlete who took bronze medal at the European Championships Luke Strong came out as bisexual on a BBC sport podcast on July 15th.
Radio presenter Iain Lee told the Metro newspaper that since coming out as bi last year he has been inundated with nude photos from men.
Avery Wilson, who caught the public eye on season three of The Voice, came out in a short and simple tweet on the 18th. “I’m bisexual. Ok bye” was a short and sweet message to post on his 25th birthday.
Singer-songwriter Demi Lovato announced her engagement on the 23th to Max Ehrich – who she had only started dating four months ago but lockdown had helped the relationship along.
Finally on the 29th Millie Bobby Brown, who played Eleven in Stranger Things, announced she will be starring and directing a film adaptation of The Girls I’ve Been for Netflix in 2021. It’s about a bisexual con artist, which might play into the “bis are untrustworthy” cliche but we’ll have to see both when the film is released and indeed when the book itself is released in January next year. The plot we know so far is that Millie plays Nora, who must use her powers of persuasion and impersonation to get herself, her girlfriend, and ex-boyfriend free during a hostage situation at a bank.
