This song about being bisexual is the best thing to ever happen for bi visibility on TV

When you think of bisexual male characters on TV, you only have two: the conniving Frank Underwood on House of Cards or the scheming Tyrell Wellick on Mr Robot.

That is if you can think of any bi guys on TV at all.

But this has changed with the introduction of one of the most remarkable characters on TV – for he is normal.

The character is Darryl, a middle-aged lawyer played by Pete Gardner, on the severely underrated and hilarious musical comedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.

A dad of one currently going through a divorce, he is the boss of the title character, Rebecca Bunch, who moved from New York to California for a new life and a chance to date her ex-boyfriend from summer camp.

Darryl has his own story, and it’s about finding and being proud of his own identity. This began with a flirtation with a young gay man named Josh (played by David Hull), and while he felt a little ashamed of his sexuality, he has found himself and is open to a new relationship.

It has all culminated in this song about being bisexual, demystifying the lies and prejudices about being bisexual with an 80s style jam. The best bit? No one cares because they all love him for who he is. Well, that and the bisexual flag.
