Abbi Jacobson, co-star and co-creator of Comedy Central’s Broad City, has come out as bisexual.

Jacobson confirmed her sexuality in an interview with Vanity Fair, telling the magazine, “I kind of go both ways.”

“I date men and women,” she continued. “They have to be funny, doing something they love. I don’t know — I’ve never really been interviewed about this before.”

Jacobson confirmed that she is single, and joked about potential suitors approaching her now that she’s out. “Yeah, who knows?” she said. “The world is my oyster.”

While promoting her role in upcoming drama 6 Balloons, Jacobson also spilled some details about RuPaul’s Drag Race and the next season of Broad City.

Jacobson said that Broad‘s fifth season was almost finished — the fourth season finished airing in December last year — and that they would be altering their approach to Donald Trump. During the fourth season, any mention of his name was bleeped like an expletive. Now?

“I think we are actually trying to avoid even mentioning him,” Jacobson said. “It’s not even funny anymore.”

As for Drag Race, she and Broad City co-star Ilana Glazer will be appearing in season ten as part of a challenge, with Glazer and Jacobson judging the remaining queens’ performances. No spoilers on who could walk on their episode, however, as “it’s pretty much under lock and key over there,” she said.

“I know roughly when it airs because, as a judge, I know how many contestants are left,” Jacobson added. “But I can’t say.”
