Who’s Bisexuals

This originally appeared in BCN issue 115.

Doctor Who writer Steven Moffat casually outed another character in the show as bisexual on Twitter  this summer.  

In an online conversation about the Doctor’s grasp of sexuality with a fan he tweeted that River Song, like Jack Harkness, is bisexual.

It’s a somewhat dubious message though that suggests gay and straight as ‘narrow views’ – at BCN Towers we like bisexuality a lot, but it’s hard to celebrate bi visibility that comes tinged with the idea that other experiences are “ridiculous”.
