Anna Paquin addresses anti-bisexual prejudice
The Oscar-winning actress told V magazine: “There is a lot of prejudice against us but the more people talk about it, the less of a deal it will be.”
Paquin publicly announced her bisexuality last year, in a public service announcement video made for the True Colors LGBT equality campaign.
Although the revelation was met with surprise, Paquin, who is married to co-star Stephen Moyer, remains undaunted. On coming out, she says: “Frankly, no one had ever asked me before. … Who people choose to sleep with — or spend their lives with — shouldn’t matter, not that anyone particularly cares who I’m attracted to.”
In the interview, previewed by USA Today ahead of the publication of the Fall issue of V magazine, the actress also discusses feeling “like an outsider” and how men and women both tend to fall for her husband.
Her comments follow the announcement that the forthcoming season of her vampire drama True Blood, which has been praised for its portrayal of gay and bisexual character in the past, will see a formerly straight character feature in a coming-out story line.
