“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” Star Stephanie Beatriz Comes Out As Bisexual


They say when a well-known personality comes out, it makes it easier for other people to come out, too.

That was literally the case this weekend, when Brooklyn Nine Nine actress Stephanie Beatriz came out as bi by retweeting a comment by Aubrey Plaza, who said she has fallen in love with both men and women, and adding “Yup.”

A follower then asked Beatriz if she meant she was bisexual (via emojis) and the actress confirmed it.

In June, Beatriz attended New York City Pride and posted an Instagram video.

HAPPY #pride NYC!
