Olly Alexander says it’s time for Love Island to make space for LGBT+ singles and thruples
The nation is addicted to Love Island.
This year’s reiteration is pulling in millions of viewers – but there’s one key component that Olly Alexander thinks is truly missing, and we’re inclined to agree.
Yep, the Years & Years star wants to know one key detail: where the bloomin’ heck are the queer people in dating programmes?
“Dating shows should exist for people who aren’t straight,” he told the Daily Star.
“They’re out there, there aren’t enough of them. Whether you try and squeeze a format that already works into something else. I don’t know,” he added.
The star also said that dating shows should consider throwing polyamorous dating hopefuls into the mix.
Alexander has previously said that being part of a thruple would be an ideal set-up for him.
“But I think the more we try and represent different kinds of relationships like polyamory, like being in a thruple.
“I myself want to be in a thruple. I want to see what that feels like.”
