Is Joe Jenkins gay?
- No, Joe does not identify as 100% gay
Some fans have assumed that Joe is gay, however the MTV star explained that he is fluid with both genders.
He went on to reveal that he identifies as bisexual, which means he is attracted to women and men, depending on who “excites him”.
Before the Siesta Key episode came out where he told Juliette and Serena about his truth and sexuality, he told fans to ask questions if they wish.
One fan asked him: “I’m genuinely curious and not being rude… I’m gay and was always wondering if you were straight gay or bi. Do you mind confirming?”
Joe told them:
I’m bi or fluid – whatever allows you to understand me better. I enjoy and am interested in whomever excites me – emotionally, mentally or physically. In the moment – I just want to be happy.
