As the years progress and younger generations grow louder voices, the public discourse on gender and sexuality simultaneously broadens and ushers in entire new societal standards. How one identifies in terms of gender and sexual orientation has become much more fluid, and much less subject to judgment and mistreatment. Of course, we still have miles to go before we achieve actual equality, but that's why it's so important that stars with huge public platforms continue to come out to their fans.
In Brazil, actress Renata Sorrah is best known for playing the villainous Nazaré Tedesco in the telenovela 'Senhora do Destino.' The rest of the world knows her as 'confused math lady' from the ubiquitous meme that shows her perplexed face surrounded by various mathematic equations and symbols. The 76-year-old actress was sitting in the second row at a play by trans activist and playwright Renata Carvalho, who reportedly asked members of the audience to raise their hands if they were bisexual. Sorrah pointedly raised her hand, and the internet went wild. "Bisexuals now own mathematics," one Twitter user wrote. "The bisexual representation we deserve," wrote another.
Sorrah isn't the first star to come out this year, and she won't be the last! Click through to see who’s in the LGBTQ+ class of 2023 so far.
