The Bisexual is a 2018 British television series on Channel 4 written and directed by Desiree Akhavan. Akhavan named the show to explore her own discomfort with bisexuality as a label and identity, as well as the broader cultural attitude towards the term.
Leila takes a break from her decade long relationship with partner Sadie, and begins to explore her own bisexuality, though struggles to come out to her friends.
Clarisse Loughrey at The Independent gave the show four stars out of five, opining that the show is "what British comedy needs to break through the stereotypes and move forward". Lucy Mangan of The Guardian described the show as "neither funny nor dramatic", giving it only two stars out of five.
