James Scully Makes It Official: His “You” Character Forty Quinn Is Definitely “Not” Straight

The rogue-ish character of Forty Quinn on the second season of Netflix’s hit drama You has both been beloved and loathed (episode dependent), but on a recent Instagram chat with fans, Forty’s portrayer James Scully seemed to pinpoint Forty’s somewhat vague sexuality; he is definitely not straight. 

This is hardly though, not a secret to fans of the former Heathers actor. Scully’s Instagram clearly speaks to his complete love and adoration for the LGBT community, and his “chosen family”.

So many people* showed up, fought, and died so that I could wear facepaint and dance in the street with my chosen family.** The best way to repay them is to always be our unapologetic, authentic selves. To live fully and freely in the world they made for us. To never give up or compromise our identity or become hardened and embittered by the ignorance of others. SO: If it takes 2 years or 200, the journey you make to understand who you are, who you want to be, and who you want to be with is so important and to everyone out there making that journey I am PROUD OF YOU. * Mostly queer people of color if we’re being honest. **and have a job, and access to health care, and security, and the right to marry. #pride #loveislove #happy

The character of Forty was introduced this season as the multi layered twin brother of Joe Goldberg’s (Penn Badgley) newest love interest Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti). With You recently being officially renewed for a third season on Netflix, all arrows (no spoilers) are being pointed to both Forty’s sexuality and personal life being further explored next season.
