But as the show goes on, David comes across as a funny and caring person who is trying hard to find himself and his passions. During the show, David’s sexuality is subtly portrayed on the show.

David Rose explains his pansexuality on ‘Schitt’s Creek’
In the popular sitcom, Daniel Levy’s character David Rose is pansexual. It means that he is attracted to people regardless of their biological sex, gender, or gender identity. In an episode, David uniquely explained his sexuality. In a conversation with Stevie (Emily Hampshire), he explained: “I do drink red wine, but I also drink white wine. And I have been known to sample the occasional rosé. A couple of summers back I tried a Merlot that used to be a Chardonnay which got a bit complicated.”
By the end of season 3, David was in a relationship with Patrick (Noah Reid), with whom he also set up a boutique general store. It was David’s first serious relationship on the show. We also saw Patrick come out openly about his sexuality to his family. They got married to each other in the season finale.
In an interview with “Entertainment Weekly”, Daniel Levy and Noah Reid talked about David’s pansexual character. Levy felt that the way that they have handled sexuality on the show has been incredibly nonchalant. They have been very deliberate to not make the queer storylines stand out in any way because they did not want them to. They wanted them to be presented with the same kind of casual ease that straight storylines are showcased.
Reid also felt that there are not a lot of examples of same-sex relationships on television that are treated just like any relationship would be treated. That is something that Dan and their whole writing team had been cognizant of. Their respective characters are just in a relationship the way that anybody would be in one, and that is the way he felt it absolutely should be represented on television. He also added that their on-screen portrayal really was hitting home with many people who do not feel like they have seen that represented on screens a lot.
