The Queen's Gambit fans think Townes is gay – Release Date Netflix

Is Townes gay in The Queen’s Gambit? – The Queen’s Gambit arrived on Netflix in October, but fans are left wondering if Townes is gay after Beth’s devotion to him is still not repaid.

Chess may not look like the sexiest board game, but the way the Queen’s Gambit shows the intense game in the game definitely makes it seem that way.

The proximity of the players and the focused concentration make it an exciting spectacle, especially if the opponent looks particularly good.

That’s a problem facing Beth Harmon in The Queen’s Gambit when she comes face – to – face with the DL Townes in her first proper tournament.

She instantly falls head over heels for her teammate, but her feelings remain unanswered by Townes.

As a result, and thanks to the events of episode 3, fans are left with theorizing that the reason Townes does not demand Beth’s feeling is that he’s gay.

Are Queen’s Gambits fans right?

The Queen’s Gambit on Netflix

The Queen’s Gambit arrived on Netflix on October 23, 2020.

The seven-episode limited series tells the story of Beth Harmon (Anya Taylor-Joy), who is an orphaned chess customer.

We follow Beth from her childhood until she becomes a young adult and one of the best chess players in the world.

While Beth competes in several high-stakes matches to become grandmaster, however, her biggest opponent is herself as she struggles with addiction.

Who are DL Townes?

DL Townes is introduced in the second episode of The Queen’s Gambit, Exchanges.

He’s a teammate at the Kentucky State Chess Championship at Henry Clay High School, and their paths cross when Beth finds out who her first opponent is.

Clearly, from this very first meeting, Beth has been wanting Townes, and it does not take long before the two end up playing each other.

Townes is played by Jacob Fortune-Lloyd in The Queen’s Gambit, which fans may recognize from Wolf Hall, Medici or Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker where I played a Sith Fleet Officer.

Are Townes gay in The Queen’s Gambit?

  • It’s never openly revealed if Townes is gay in The Queen’s Gambit, but events in episode 3 will definitely suggest he is.

Beth turns out to have an instant infatuation with her co-star, but her love for him remains unanswered and simply platonic throughout the series.

Instead, Beth ends up in relation to Harry Beltik and Benny Watts, who both eventually quit.

Townes is never seen openly with a partner during the Queen’s Gambit, but it is entirely possible that he is gay, but hides it, especially when one remembers that homosexuality was illegal in almost every U.S. state at the time the Queen’s Gambit was set .

In episode 3, when Townes gets a picture of Beth for an article, a man named Roger Dionne enters the hotel room and seems rather friendly with Townes, and it is clear that there is a kind of connection between the two.

Since Townes is from Kentucky, where we first meet him in episode 2, homosexuality would not have been legal there until 1992.

The Queen’s Gambit is available for streaming now on Netflix following its release on Netflix on October 23, 2020.
