In a brand new interview with Vanity Fair, Broad City star and comedy goddess Abbi Jacobson revealed, “I kind of go both ways; I date men and women."


There have been a fair few rumours about Abbi’s sexuality and a possible previous relationship with another under-the-radar queer celeb, musician, actor and Sleater-Kinney alumna, Carrie Brownstein. But now we know for sure and it feels damn good.



So what does the single and extremely elligbile Abbi look for in a romantic partner?


"They have to be funny, doing something they love. I don’t know—I’ve never really been interviewed about this before.”


Fair enough. When asked about potential suitors, she replied, “Yeah, who knows? The world is my oyster.”



In addition to making our queer hearts sing, the interview was promoting Abbi’s new film with James Franco, 6 Balloons. In another fun lil' snippet of lez/bi trivia, writer-director Marja-Lewis Ryan is also the new show runner for hotly anticipated The L Word reboot.


Abbi is playing the devoted sister of a heroin addict. Sounds like a pretty dramatic role for someone we’re used to seeing in a LOL-a-minute sitcom. We bet she'll be awesome. She told Vanity Fair, “I auditioned a couple of times. I don’t think I was a lot of people’s first choice, to be honest. Marja-Lewis Ryan really fought for me.”


Bravo Marja-Lewis! Congrats on liking girls, Abbi! There's only one thing left to say...
