Fun trailer teases for Atomic Blonde

Charlize Theron stars in Atomic Blonde this summer, a “breakneck action-thriller” that about an MI6 assassin. And she’s bisexual, if the gratuitous trailer didn’t drop you the hint. The top agent of Her Majesty’s Secret Intelligence Service, and definitely not a character created out of frustration at double-oh-seven always being a bloke, Agent Lorraine Broughton (played by Theron) has been […]

Welcome to Bi Media Watch! Picking up where BiWatch left off with semi-regular articles on bisexuality, bi characters and all things bisexual in the media.

Film & Book Reviews

Virtually irrelevant? A review of Virtually Normal – an argument about homosexuality by Andrew Sullivan. (Picador, £14.99). This book really annoys me.
