Jonathan Bailey Sexuality
Jonathan Bailey is gay. Bailey spoke about his experiences to Ian McKellen in 2020 that I was coming to terms with my own sexuality, I hadn’t necessarily hidden it, but I’ve never been not honest about it. It’s just there had never been a need to talk about it.
Jonathan Bailey is gay and he plays a straight character in Bridgerton. The Anthony Bridgerton actor has been very open about his sexuality as he shares his experiences on being gay.
In an interview, he discussed gay actors and said I think it shouldn’t matter at all that character people play, but of course, there is a narrative that’s very clear, that openly gay men aren’t playing straight in leading roles.
A lot of straight men have gone on to play iconic gay roles and to be lauded for that is fantastic. But wouldn’t it be brilliant to see gay men play their own experience.
…why is it not possible for a gay man to play a gay man in any main stream film? It is completely bizarre that only straight men can play gay men and inturn get congratulated for it!
