Frank Underwood Is Bisexual (And Why It Matters)
Beau Willimon, the creator of House of Cards, commented on the nature of Frank's sexuality in a Huffington Post article after the release of season 3 in March 2015. When asked if Frank is bisexual or gay, he responded “I don’t think Frank Underwood really puts much stock in those sort of labels. As he says in the Sentinel episode [in Season 1], ‘When I’m attracted to someone, I’m attracted to them. Period.’” Choosing not to label one's sexuality is a completely legitimate choice. Because Frank is a fictional character in a TV show viewed by millions of people, it would be a meaningful move on the part of the creators of the show to explicitly refer to Frank's sexuality, be it queer, bisexual, or pansexual.
