‘Jane the Virgin’ introduces a bisexual character and fans are excited

Telenovela sitcom, Jane the Virgin, is making waves for its casual inclusion of a bisexual character.

In the recent episode, entitled ‘Jane the Heteronormative,’ Jane discovers that her new partner Adam has dated men in the past. Jane, played by Gina Rodriguez, spends a lot of the episode coming to terms with Adam’s sexuality.

Rodriguez recently said that she is ‘more bisexual’ than the character she plays, saying that she loves people for their hearts.

Jane the Virgin showrunner, Jennie Snyder Urman spoke to Variety about including a bisexual character: “I feel like you see a lot of bisexual women on TV because men think it’s sexy when women make out. We felt like we hadn’t had a romantic hero who’s also bisexual.”

She continued: “[Jane] had to confront what that meant and ask questions — and feel safe enough to ask questions because sometimes you feel like your questions are silly and you should know better, but ask them!”

Adam is played by former Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey, who made headlines last year for pretending to come out as gay on Snapchat

Fans of the show took to Twitter to express their excitement at the bisexual representation.

Many people have said that bisexual representation and visibility is one of the most important struggles that the LGBT+ community faces in the 21st century.

    The bisexuality twist came right out of nowhere! lol. I just burst out laughing when it happened. Like how could Jane even begin to deal, was what I first thought. i thought it was beautifully handled. Hopefully, the bisexuality won’t just be a waka pass thing and that it will be cropping up every now and then. Cos it’s true what they say about bisexual representation on TV being very low. We need more bisexuals on TV!!!
