NBC’s new sitcom “Abby’s,” premiering March 28, features the first bisexual lead played by an out actress.
Natalie Morales stars as Abby, a former Marine who opens a bar in her backyard. She came out publicly as queer in 2017, according to the Washington Blade.
"The reason I decided to share this with you and with the world is because even though me telling you I'm queer might not be a big deal these days, things are still pretty bad out there for people like me...I think it's important that I tell you that this familiar face you see on your TV is the Q part of LGBTQ, so that if you didn't know someone who was queer before, you do now," Morales said, according to E! News.
Bisexual characters on TV shows are at an all time high at 8.8 percent, according to a GLAAD report.
