It’s Bi Visibility Day! Here are some famous bi people with quotes about their bisexuality :)
Alan Cumming: “I don’t understand this but I never felt any shame about my sexuality and the idea that I found boys attractive as well as girls.”
Lady Gaga: “I’m boy-crazy, and girl-crazy too. it really depends on where I am. I love men, I love women and I love sex.”
Freddie Mercury: “I play on the bisexual thing because it’s something else, it’s fun… the last thing I want to do is to give people an idea of exactly who I am. I want people to work out their own interpretation of me and my image.”
David Bowie: “It’s true — I am a 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.”
Anna Paquin: “For me, it’s not really an issue because I’m someone who believes being bisexual is actually a thing. It’s not made up. It’s not a lack of decision. It’s not being greedy or numerous other ignorant things I’ve heard at this point.”
Kurt Cobain: “I’m definitely gay in spirit, and I probably could be bisexual… If I wouldn’t have found Courtney, I probably would have carried on with a bisexual lifestyle.”
Drew Barrymore: “I regard myself as bisexual. If you’re with a woman, it is like if you’re exploring your own body, only through someone else.”
Angelina Jolie: “I like everything. Boyish girls, girlish boys, the heavy and the skinny. Which is a problem when I’m walking down the street.”
Skin: “Yes I happen to be female and black and bisexual and these are things that are part of me, but they don’t tell the whole picture, it’s too limiting to put people in boxes like that.”
Amy Winehouse: “There is something about being with a woman that is very satisfying. I don’t care what people think about me being bi — I do what feels good.”
Auriga Black, 1789-1870. Expelled from Hogwarts in her 6th year for “gross insubordination and conduct unbecoming a lady,” Auriga emigrated to a cousin’s estate near Ashwinds, Virginia and completed her education at the Randolph-Poythress Institute. Thereafter she engaged in a tour of her new country.
Gifted in combat magic, Auriga was fond of dressing in men’s attire and provoking duels, both magical and mundane. She soon earned a fearsome reputation as a warrior, a gambler, and a degenerate, infamous from Maryland to Louisiana. As a Metamorphmagus, her disguises often concealed her gender entirely, as well as allowing her to escape the attentions of both the Muggle and wizarding authorities. On at least one occasion, she reverted to her natural appearance mid-duel, so shocking her opponent that he accidentally hexed himself and three bystanders.
With her face-shifting abilities allowing her to evade capture, the Wizarding Department of National Security eventually resorted to offering her a more compelling reason to give up her reckless and often destructive lifestyle: in exchange for a full pardon of all her misdeeds, Auriga would join the department to protect America against British invasion in the War of 1812. Auriga agreed, and though many voiced opposition to her appointment, she acquitted herself notably at the Battle of Baltimore, where her anti-conflagratory charms were partially responsible for preserving the fortress against bombardment.
Auriga never again took up the rakish misdeeds of her youth, though she maintained an active and often adventurous life, first with the DNS, then transferring to the Aurors’ Board sometime in the 1830s. Despite her advanced age, she fought for the South-Eastern region in the American Wizarding Civil War and was killed at the Battle of the Tappahannock. She never married, though she lived for many years with her second cousin, Miss Emmaline Black-Wythe.
