Topping the cake, he is a tall man with a deep voice and, not to mention, his English accent. Jonathan is an irresistibly charming man; however, fellow señoritas, he's gay. Nevertheless, it shouldn't change a thing for a true fan.

Jonathan Bailey Stands For LGBTI People

Jonathan is a terrific actor who is often found championing the LGBTI community. He has explicitly spoken on gay marriage, gay roles in the films/series, and the community in general, and it seems like he's doing his part to bring human beings together, despite the sexual orientations. In an interview with Attitude Magazine in 2019, he said, "Gay men should be able to get married, it shouldn't be seen as a privilege, absolutely we should." He further added, "But the question of, 'Just because we can, should we?' is an interesting one.

Jonathan Contradicts Himself To Raise Gay People’s Representation

While addressing the roles of gay characters in the reels, in an interview with DigitalSpy in 2020, Jonathon gushed, "it shouldn't matter at all what character people play." Nonetheless, he also acknowledges the existing narrative to which he told, "but of course there is a narrative that's very clear, that openly gay men aren't playing straight in leading roles,". Conversely to his prior statement, in the same interaction, Jonathan hinted that it would be great for gay people to play their own experience, i.e., gay roles.

"So the fact that a lot of straight men have gone on to play iconic gay roles and to be lauded for that is fantastic, that that story is being told. But wouldn't it be brilliant to see gay men play their own experience?"

The duality in his statements can be interpreted to the small-scale representation of the LGBTI actors playing LGBTI characters, whose roles, if played by others, despite the availability of capable LGBTI artists, would even push back the community's representation in the cinema. 

He Analogizes The Struggles Of Gay People With Women’s Endeavors

Jonathan thinks that the modulations of a gay character is compelling. Cognizing the "real strength" of gay men, he compares women of Bridgerton with gay people in terms of "hurdles" and "self-growth." 

"There's a reason why gay characters are so interesting. Because much like the women in Bridgerton, there are a lot of hurdles and there's a lot of self-growth, and there's a real strength to gay men."

Jonathan Who Wants To be a Gay Role Model Hasn’t Revealed About His Spouse

Jonathan played Viscount Anthony Bridgerton in the Netflix series Bridgerton, a straight man; however, in his personal life, he says he's still figuring out how to be a visible gay role model.

As much as he'd like to inspire people to rejoice in their sexuality through his experiences and tales, he has drawn a line for his public life. He's particular about his private affairs, and that is why we have no clue about his relationship status. Even if Jonathan is dating, we even can't guess who's his partner. 

Quick Fun Facts 

1. Jonathan says that love is a "game of hide and seek or a game of sardines, depending on your vibe".

2. He describes a perfect date as going on a little adventure- getting a pint - exploring - rambling or bike riding - change of scenery. 

3. Most romantic thing someone has done for him was sitting to have a chat with him while he was having his bath fully naked.

4. Music makes Jonathan the happiest.

5. If he wasn't an actor, Jonathan would love to be a primary school teacher.
