Bisexual “Stranger Things” Star Wants to Help Queer Youth

Shannon Purser

Stranger Things’ and Riverdale star, Shannon Purser, wants her coming out as bisexual to help young people. Purser who played the much beloved Barb in the sci-fi hit Stranger Things, came out last year on Twitter. She had been embroiled in argument with Riverdale fans about queerbaiting when she revealed her sexuality.

‘I don’t normally do this, but I figure now is just as good a time as any to get personal,’ she said at the time. ‘I’ve only just recently come out as bisexual to my family and friends. It’s something I am still processing and trying to understand and I don’t like talking about it too much.’

Purser revealed since she came out that a lot of young people are opening up to her about their sexuality. They’ve told her that her coming out has helped them be brave to come out themselves.
‘That’s what matters most to me. That’s the best compliment I’ve ever received,’ Purser told People.
