Keeley Jones from "Ted Lasso" could possibly be bisexual, Kirstie Allsopp defends Dylan Mulvaney amid Bud Light backlash, and a university hosts Angela Chen for International Asexuality Day.
Is ‘Ted Lasso’ Character Keeley Jones Bi?
"Ted Lasso’s" Keeley Jones has been revealed to be bisexual, or at the very least under the bi umbrella during a sensual scene in the latest season.
Fans of Apple TV’s "Ted Lasso" have speculated since the start of the show that Keeley is more than heterosexual, and their dreams have finally come true.
Keeley, played by queer ally Juno Temple, is in the midst of a love triangle with characters Roy and Jamie. Jack, played by queer Jodi Balfour, works to help Keeley with their stress when the moment of truth goes down.
Keeley and Jack eventually take off each other’s clothes and make out behind frosted glass.
Fans await how Keeley will explore their sexuality throughout the duration of the show.
Kirstie Allsopp Defends Dylan Mulvaney Amid Backlash For Corporate Partnerships

Trans TikTok star Dylan Mulvaney has risen to stardom and recently announced partnerships with Bud Light, Nike, and more as a brand ambassador.
Mulvaney has faced fierce backlash from the public for her partnerships with several controversial brands.
Kristie Allsopp on a Twitter thread compared Mulvaney to the late Paul O’Grady, also known by their drag persona Lily Savage.
"I don’t believe that Paul O’Grady mocked women," said Allsopp. "So neither do I think Dylan Mulvaney does that."
Mulvaney spoke of this scrutiny on IHeart Radio’s Onward with Rosie O’Donnell’s podcast.
"The reason that I think I am so … I’m an easy target is because I’m so new to this," said Mulvaney. "I’m not worried about the people talking about me on their podcasts. I’m worried about their listeners."
University Hosts Angela Chen For International Asexuality Day

The University of Massachusetts’ LGBT resource center The Stonewall Center hosted asexual author Angela Chen for International Asexuality Day.
Chen delivered a lecture on the lack of knowledge surrounding sexuality, which she calls "a state of epistemic injustice."
"Angela Chen was chosen because we thought that many people on campus needed to learn more about asexuality and we wanted the growing number of students identifying as asexual to have a speaker whom they could relate to, who would affirm them and their experiences," said Genny Beemyn, the director of The Stonewall Center.
Chen stated that many think asexuality as purely a sexuality, but she prefers to see it as much more.
"People treat asexuality as if the entire experience of being ace starts and stops in a romantic, dating, sexual context … in my own personal experience, that’s not true … being ace changes so many parts of your life that have nothing to do with sexual attraction.”
After Chen’s lecture, they signed copies of their book and a reception was held for asexual and aromantic members.
