Character: Bo Dennis
Appears in: Lost Girl
Commonly Interpreted as: Bisexual/Pansexual
Bo is a succubus, which is a particular kind of Fae who draws energy from the chi and sexual energy of other people (both humans and fae). She has no preference in the gender of who she draws sexual energy from. So she has multiple brief sexual encounters with multiple men and women on the show, including Tamsin.
However, Bo also has two very serious romantic relationships. She is involved with a human doctor named Lauren and a werewolf Fae named Dyson. Both relationships are given equal weight in the show; neither one treated as ‘more real’ than the other.
Unfortunately no one (even Bo) ever uses the words bisexual or pansexual to explicitly describe her sexuality. (Folks involved in the show have done so in interviews, but not in the show itself as far as I’m aware). Also, the fact that Bo’s bisexuality is tied to her mystical nature (as a succubus) is a bit problematic.
But still, Bo’s a bisexual/pansexual character whose sexuality is not erased by the writers or the audience.
This is the first entry in the new Visible Bi Characters tag, made for characters whose bisexuality/pansexuality is explicit and intentional by the authors and recognised by the audience. However, I’m still focusing on Invisible Bi Characters.
