Make Thomas Cowley Bisexual

This petition had 88 supporters

The majority of the LGBTQ+ community identifies as bisexual or as having an attraction to more than one gender, and yet it is the least understood of any identity. We are oversexualized and underrepresented. We are called greedy, dishonest, and confused. We are the least likely to come out and the most likely to suffer from depression and anxiety, on top of experiencing higher rates of sexual/intimate partner violence. We are made to feel invisible and in doing so we begin to see ourselves as invisible. Making Thomas Cowley canonically bisexual on the radio would make him the first openly LGBTQ host of any gender from Rain Man Digital’s universe, and would solidify his place as a true role model for men of all ages and identities.

The Thomas Cowley character is the embodiment of strength and resilience in a genre that places men as the sidekick more often than the hero. The bar is already so low when it comes to celebrating men and LGBTQ characters in a positive way, and I am tired of grasping at straws in an effort to see them represented.

All I ask is that Thomas Cowley. directly acknowledge himself for who he is, who he has always been (regardless of his current love interest), and what his character could potentially represent for millions of people.
