A 3D rendering of a skeleton in bisexual lighting.

Bisexual lighting is the simultaneous use of pink, purple, and blue lighting. It can be used intentionally to represent bisexual characters in media by evoking the hues of the bi flag, or it can show up "accidentally" with no reference to sexuality intended.

Some people have criticized the use of bisexual lighting, claiming that it can unintentionally reinforce anti-bi stereotypes.[1]

Usage in media[edit]

Please add examples of media that have used bisexual lighting, whether intentional or not.

  • "The Sign Of Three", a 2014 episode of BBC's Sherlock series, had apparent bisexual lighting in one scene featuring John Watson.[2]
  • "San Junipero", a 2016 episode of Black Mirror, used bisexual lighting, and Kelly (one of the protagonists) states that she likes women and men.
  • The music video for Janelle Monáe's 2018 song "Make Me Feel" used bisexual lighting and shows Monáe flirting with men and women.
