Hot on the heels of Ricky Martin’s announcement on his personal blog that he’s gay, “True Blood” star Anna Paquin used an unusual medium of her own to announce that she is bisexual.
Alongside celebrities such as Elton John, Clay Aiken, and Wanda Sykes, Paquin declared her sexual orientation in a public service announcement for Cyndi Lauper’s Give a Damn Campaign, which promotes equality for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. Two videos were shot in Los Angeles on January 30 and were released April 1 at 9 a.m. EST.
What makes 27-year-old Paquin’s spot particularly surprising is that, unlike some of the other openly gay celebrities involved in the campaign, the actor had never before discussed being bisexual. According to sources, even people at the shoot were surprised when Paquin made the revelation.
