As per GQ Hype interview, Jonathan Bailey was asked if his s*xuality ever created a roadblock in his professional world. He recalled an incident that happened with his actor friend. Bailey said, “At the time he was told ‘There’s two things we don’t want to know: if you’re an alcoholic or if you’re gay.” Jonathan on getting that advice decided to keep his identity a secret.

Jonathan Bailey added, “All it takes is for one of those people in that position of power to say that, and it ripples through. So, yeah, of course, I thought that. Of course, I thought that in order to be happy, I needed to be straight.”

Soon enough Jonathan Bailey who was still thinking about the advice gave up and decided to embrace his own self. He said, “I reached a point where I thought, F**k this, I’d much prefer to hold my boyfriend’s hand in public or be able to put my own face picture on Tinder and not be so concerned about that, than getting a part.”

More power to you Jonathan!
