Not all celebrities are comfortable with sharing their private lives in public. Some prefer to keep their professional and private lives separate. Although they work in front of the camera most of the time, they want to keep some aspects of their lives — such as their sexuality and dating life — away from the media. One of them is 28-year-old British actor, Joseph Quinn.
Joseph Quinn is best known for his role as Eddie Munson in the Fourth Season of the Netflix series “Stranger Things”. He captured the hearts of the hit series’ viewers with his shaggy mullet and eccentric personality. He was, actually, considered a breakout character. The fans especially love how his character turned out to be one of the biggest surprises of the series.
The actor also appeared in the British drama TV series “Dickensian” (2016), “Howards End” (2017), and “Catherine the Great” (2019).
Now, fans have been really curious about Joseph Quinn’s sexuality. There were actually rumors that the actor was queer. Now let’s dig into the reasons why fans think as such. Let’s also seek the answer to the much-asked question — is Joseph Quinn gay?
VOTE: What is Joseph Quinn’s Sexuality?
Joseph Quinn’s Sexuality
Some fans confused Joseph Quinn’s attempt to keep his private life in a wrap as a sign of being gay. Just because the actor is not publicly dating anyone, or sharing anything about his dating life, fans were quick to assume his sexuality.
Although there was a rumor linking him to American rapper, Doja Cat, there was nothing to prove the rumor to be true. He was also linked to his Stranger Things co-actor, Jamie Bowie. The two are very close and are often spotted attending parties together. They also love to share silly photos which give off a queer vibe. This led to fans putting malice into their friendship and assuming it to be something more.
Jamie Bowie has been thought of as gay because of the way he sometimes acts. But contrary to the fans’ belief, Jamie Bowie is actually straight. He actually used to date English actress Bonnie Wright from 2009 to 2012. He also dated his manager, Jess Moloney.

Joseph Quinn as Eddie Munson
It’s funny how fans also question Eddie Munson’s sexuality, the role Joseph Quinn plays in “Stranger Things”. Although there was nothing queery about Eddie Munson’s appearance, it didn’t stop the viewers from assuming that he is homosexual. This was after they looked into the character’s details and found some hints that possibly lead to his sexuality. So, yes, some of the “Stranger Things” fans believe that Eddie Munson is gay, although it was never really established in the series.
It looks like both the actor and the character he plays couldn’t escape the gay rumors. And just like how the fans can’t find solid proof of the actor’s sexuality, Eddie Munson’s sexuality will remain a mystery among the viewers of the hit TV series, as well.
Is Joseph Quinn Gay?
The actor doesn’t seem to date anyone as of the moment if we take his posts on social media into consideration. But again, he could be dating someone in private — who knows? But that doesn’t change the fact that we don’t have enough evidence to support the claim that he is gay. Thus, Joseph Quinn being gay will remain a baseless rumor. Nothing more.
