If you don’t live for the bond shared by Chandler Bing and Joey Tribbiani on Friends then are you living at all? But here’s the thing… is this just a friendly bond or is there something more? Here’s why we think Chandler and Joey are the first bisexual icons on TV.
The New Year’s incident
In season 1 episode 24, (pretty early on in the series), Chandler is insecure about not having anyone to kiss on New Year’s Eve. He finds himself a date who leaves and in the end, who comes to his rescue but Joey! The two share a quick peck on the lips and though it is played for laughs, this could be indicative of something more perhaps…
It seems… petty
One of the first signs that a relationship is getting serious is when you own pets together. Well, the iconic chick and duck from the show are two pets owned by Chandler and Joey together. And their reactions immediately after they buy the two birds is very akin to a couple fighting over sharing responsibility for a newborn baby. So, is this just a clever joke by the writers or something more?
Atlantic city baby!
Let’s not forget about Atlantic city. Ross reveals to Monica in season 7 episode 4 about the time Chandler kisses a guy in Atlantic City. According to Chandler, that was just an accident but we know that he was experimenting.
Well, the writers are never going to confirm anything but we can speculate and I have made up my mind that Chandler and Joey were lampshaded bisexuals who probably dated at some point.
