The actor might have a girlfriend, but we can be certain that he is not gay. However, he does support the community. Here is his stance

He further added:
"I was born loving women but I easily could have been born loving men. It’s the exact same sensation… You don’t fall in love with someone [just] for their physical [traits], but for their mental."
Right there is the proof - he stated that he was not gay and loved women. So it seems like he has finally found his dream girlfriend.

Trevante Rhodes's Inspiration
Trevante, who portrays the role of a gay man in the movie Moonlight, expressed to the interview magazine that one of his best friends was gay, and he knew about the struggle and could relate to his character on camera. He said,
“For me, it wasn’t about ‘pulling from’ [anything],” he explain. “One of my best friends is homosexual so I knew his struggle, but it wasn’t about pulling from that. I didn’t want to make it about that. It was really just about understanding people, understanding love and relationships…As actors and directors, I feel like our job, more so than anything else, is to shine a light on a subject and to let people know that they’re not alone."
He is one thoughtful and sensitive man. Isn't he?
If there is no dating affair or rumored girlfriend about an eligible, young, and good-looking guy, they may end up with the gay tagline. People often speculate and assume a guy is gay, given his lack of dating details.
However, the rumors have had no impact on his professional life.
Trevante Rhodes's Career
The 32-year-old Trevante was born in Louisiana. However, his parents got divorced when he was only 4. So at age 10, he moved to Texas with his mother.
In Texas, he started grooming his running skills, ultimately landing himself an athletic scholarship at the University of Texas. He was a star runner during his school days.
“Even then, I despised running.But it was a means to pay for school."
Later, the actor also started developing an interest in theaters but not exclusively.
Call it his fate or destiny; the athlete pulled off his shirt while jogging on the university's campus. A casting director saw him shirtless, waved at him, and told him he should be in movies; that is how his acting journey began.
The athlete turned actor is very much into workouts, and many of his fans aspire to him for that.
