Stranger Things' Shannon Purser Comes Out as Bisexual

Riverdale's Shannon Purser Reveals She's Bisexual

Her announcement was prompted by backlash against a now-deleted tweet to her Riverdale costar Cole Sprouse about fans of the show who ship famous best friends Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge (the two kissed in a past episode). "I wasn't referring to all of the Beronica shippers, just the ones who had been particularly cruel to me personally", she continued.

Welcome to the family, Shannon! "I have never heard the term "queer baiting" in my life until today", she said, before apologizing to those who had been hurt by her tweet.

After getting candid about her sexuality one week ago, Shannon Purser has come out as bisexual.

Like many others, you probably came to know Shannon Purser through the cultural phenomenon that is Stranger Things. "I've only recently come out as bisexual to my friends and family", Purser began.

Purser's coming out comes on the heels of a series of tweets she wrote earlier this month that hinted that she was grappling with being open about her sexuality.

The starlet used Twitter in the past to address her self-harm and body issues. I'm so thankful that LGBT people have related to the character. "Much love to you all".

Back in 2016, Shannon shared a photo of her holding a razor blade, saying that she hasn't harmed herself in years, but she likes to keep that around, 'just in case'. "Please don't give up on yourself". It's also in keeping with Purser's determination to be a positive role model.

Minutes later, she tweeted, "Another thing I wish I'd known about sexuality is to take it slow", she tweeted next. "There are some very graphic scenes in there that could easily trigger painful memories and feelings". From playing our #1 fave ', she's been the one character that we're all quietly (and sometimes very loudly) rooting for.
