I think this has something to do with the fact that: 1.] public figures outside the entertainment sphere are disproportionately men; and 2.] bisexuality is even more stigmatized in men than in women (probably because the latter are simply understood as straight).

So bi men are less likely to be out about it. And, if they are? The media generally just reports them as gay anyway.

I would've said Janelle Monroe, especially since she was mentioned here to in the past... But, as of lately, she's been on the TRA/non-binary train (she claims she's non binary now...).

Edit: this was also a good question, because now that I think about, I actually couldn't think of any bisexual figures who get respect... Too bad no one else commented here.
