Coronation Street Bisexual Storyline: Marcus Cheats On His Boyfriend Aiden With His Best Female Friend Maria.
There is a lot of controversy online about the new Coronation Street storyline of the gay character Marcus falling in love with his heterosexual female friend Maria. In today’s episode, Maria schemes to keep Marcus from moving away to London with his boyfriend Aiden. Maria realizes she’s fallen in love with Marcus and she doesn’t love her boyfriend Jason. At the end of the episode, Maria and Marcus argue and then they have sex. Some people believe Coronation Street is promoting the myth that being gay is a choice and not a sexual orientation. However, I think sexuality is more complex than just being black and white. People don’t just fit into neat categories of heterosexual, homosexual, or bisexual. Human sexuality is fluid and some people through out their lives can move between the three categories.
