Hey, Duncan James of the British boy band Blue just came out as bi last week! I had never heard of them, but they're covering Next's "Too Close," so at least someone knows what they're doing when it comes to choosing songs.

Didn't Mick Jagger and David Bowie once say the same thing? It's all bullshit. Straight guys who say they are bisexual are like people who dunk their cookies in milk and then don't eat them. It is safe to SAY one is bi before the age of 40 but not so much afterward without societal repercussion. NOT IMPRESSED!!!!!!!! Not to mention i don't really give a damn. Who really cares? Whatever.

I am so tired of this from within the ranks of the LGBTIQ.

Thankfully, it seems like there's a growing number of people capable of more sophisticated thinking around gender and orientation.

Good for Mr James, I say.

Not impressed by this bigoted comment.

A Bi persons attraction to and or desire for the same sex can vary from that being the preferred relationship style to the occasional thing; or anything in between.

What is not true is that Bi folk are straight - even if we end up in an opposite sex relationship that does not make us straight. Our thought patterns and attractions are not straight or gay. We don't flip flop from being straight or gay we are Bi and remain so regardless of the gender of the person we are with.

In the movie 'Love Actually', the decrepit singer with the sleazy Xmas song beat out a band called 'Blue' for some TV show award. I'd always assumed it was a made-up band. Is this the same 'Blue'?

Yes they are the same band.
