Drag superstar Courtney Act has shared the very first trailer for her brand new bisexual dating show The Bi Life. The Aussie drag queen and singer was a finalist on season six of RuPaul’s Drag Race and the winner of the 21st cycle of Celebrity Big Brother.
Courtney will host The Bi Life, a reality show in which contestants who identify as bisexual, pansexual and questioning will live and party together in an exploration of their sexual identities. The trailer shows Courtney drenching a number of singletons in buckets of pink, purple and blue paint; the colours of the bisexual flag.
Courtney took to Twitter to share the trailer with the caption:
“Welcome to #TheBiLife, the UK’s first bisexual+ reality dating show, hosted by me!”

Courtney spoke to Gay Star News about the significance of a dating show that shows the experiences of bisexual, pansexual and questioning people:
“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.
“So get ready to see the true stories of bisexual singles. They are the largest part of the LGBTQ+ community, but the least known.”
Courtney posted the promo for the bisexual dating show yesterday, September 23, which was also the 20th Annual Bi Visibility Day. The drag artist took to Instagram to share a three-part series on bisexuality in celebration of the day. In the videos, Courtney addresses a number of misconceptions surrounding sexuality as well as highlighting the significance of their meaning:
“Whether it’s bisexual, pansexual, queer, fluid or no label, they are all meant to let you know that this person doesn’t fall into the categories of totes gay or simply straight.
“Remember, language is a living, breathing thing and it grows with time and so should we.”
The Bi Life premieres on October 25 on E! Entertainment Television UK and Ireland.
