A few weeks back, Anna Paquin of True Blood taped a public service announcement announcing her bisexuality for the Give a Damn campaign, which made headlines because it was the first time she revealed the news to the public. The actress expounded upon her decision to reveal her sexuality to Zap2It. She said, "I'm not someone who endlessly talks about her personal life for no reason, but obviously, as someone who identifies as bisexual, those are issues I really care about -- and frankly, I don't see why everyone doesn't care about them. So when I was asked to participate in that PSA, it was just an obvious, 'Well, of course I will.'" Coincidentally, Paquin is engaged to Stephen Moyer, her True Blood co-star, so perhaps she likes men more than women right now.
Furthermore, Paquin said, "It wasn't like it was a big secret. It was just a cause I cared about and privately supported, but not one that I had ever had an opportunity to speak out about in a way that would be useful. Obviously I know that one person's voice doesn't necessarily do that much, but I just wanted to do my bit."
Was Paquin's revelation brave? Do you think that it has or will help open people's minds to bisexuality?
