the Bisexual Pride flag
Bisexual means having sexual attraction towards both male and female sexes [1].

The Kinsey Scale ranks people on a scale from 0, meaning exclusively heterosexual, to 6, meaning exclusively homosexual. People ranked from 2 to 4 are often classed as bisexual,[2] while the range from 1 to 5 is more commonly recognised by bisexual advocates and organisations [3].

In 2024 Cardiff City Ladies FC footballer Lailah Muscat, said coming out as bisexual was a difficult process [4].
