Brittany Pierce: a positive portrayal of teen bisexuality

To start off with, one thing needs to be said: Brittany Pierce in Glee is an out and proud bisexual. Not convinced? OK, let's hear it from her: 
  • During I Am Unicorn, when talking to Kurt about her running as a candidate for class president, she says she realised she was a unicorn too (with Santana's help!), and followed this with "maybe a bicorn".
  • During The Spanish Teacher, she joked that she was "bilingual".
  • In Props, after Santana told a teacher in the teachers' lounge that they were both gay, Brittany pointed out that she was bi, but that this didn't make a huge difference to Santana's point.

      Inspiration from Bicon 2012

      So, I just spent the last 5 days at BiCon 2012 in Bradford. It inspired me to do various things, one of which is to blog more. It also made me decide to start posting everything in the one blog rather than keeping this just for music, TV and film and using my other blog for the more serious things. 

      With this in mind, as this is the blog that gets the most traffic, I'm going to make this my one and only blog after a name change and repost everything from 'Analysis and Geekery' here, with the original dates so it doesn't look like I wrote them recently.
