RuPaul star Courtney Act releases trailer for new bisexual dating show
RuPaul’s Drag Race star Courtney Act has posted a trailer for her upcoming bisexual dating show.
The drag queen will host The Bi Life, the first TV show focusing exclusively on bisexual dating in the UK.
It only includes participants who are bisexual, pansexual or questioning and is being filmed in Barcelona.
The series premieres in October on E! will see the cast living and partying together as they explore queer dating and their identities – some for the first time.
Welcome to #TheBiLife, the UK’s first bisexual+ reality dating show, hosted by me!

Act posted the trailer to Twitter, with the caption: “Welcome to #TheBiLife, the UK’s first bisexual+ reality dating show, hosted by me!”
In the clip, people can be seen looking at each other dressed in white, before Act throws a bucket of pink, purple and blue paint over them, which is the colours of the bisexual flag.
Act, who has spoken to PinkNews about being pansexual and genderfluid, said: “It’s high time there was a dating show for the large number of young people today, like me, who are attracted to more than one gender.
“In 2018 we know that sexuality is fluid and sharing the stories and experiences, the laughter and the lovemaking, of young bi people is so important,” continued the RuPaul’s Drag Race runner-up.

“So get ready to see the true stories of bisexual singles, who are the largest part of the LGBTQ+ community, but the least known.”
Ros Coward, executive producer, said: “A TV show that better reflects diversity within society’s dating pool has been long overdue.
“The Bi Life is a modern dating show for a modern generation of daters.”
Lee Raftery, who is NBCUniversal International’s chief marketing officer, said: “With the number of British people identifying themselves as bisexual rising by 73% in four years, we are incredibly excited to be introducing this pioneering series to our audiences in the UK and Ireland.”
