10 (5) Bisexual Celebs that you need to stop calling gay or straight

We’re nearing the end of Bisexual Health Awareness Month: a time set aside by the Bi Resource Center to focus on issues that specifically affect those who identify with the B in LGBT. We still have a long, long way to go before we reach equality for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, and one glaring issue in our culture is bi erasure. All too often, people who call themselves bisexual get hammered into ill-fitting cubbies labeled “straight” and “gay”– and it happens to celebrities all the time. Here are 10 famous names that we all need to associate with bisexuality!

1. Amber Heard. She’s now sporting a gigantic rock from Johnny Depp, but that doesn’t erase her past relationship with photographer Tasya van Ree– and it definitely doesn’t change the fact that she came out in 2010. “I don’t label myself one way or another,” she said at a GLAAD event. “I have had successful relationships with men and now a woman.”

2. Alan Cumming. He’s happily married to a man. Cool. That doesn’t make him gay. “I still define myself as bisexual even though I have chosen to be with Grant,” he once stated. “I’m sexually attracted to the female form even though I am with a man and I just feel like bisexuals have a bad rap.”

4. Megan Fox. She once told Esquire, “I have no question in my mind about being bisexual.” Guess what? That settles it.

8. Billie Joe Armstrong. Did you know that men who marry women can still be just as bisexual as they were when they were single? Shocking stuff.

9. Angelina Jolie. She’s publicly dated men and women, and she’s openly talked about her fluid sexually throughout the years. Nothing straight about that.

The rest at the Source.

MODS, I'm re-submitting this because we have list posts all the time. In fact, I love list posts. So what if it's not ~brand new information~ for everyone? It's a great subject to talk about. ALSO BISEXUAL AWARENESS MONTH... let's be aware.
