We all know her as the trans teen, Jules Vaughn, on the HBO series "Euphoria." Following her part in the teen drama television series, many have questioned her sexuality.


In 2019, Hunter Schafer disclosed that her sexual identity might be close to a lesbian but clarified the matter no further. Two years after the interview with Dazed, she has come out to set the record straight for good.

The need for clarification comes after a viral tweet identified her as a lesbian. The sender seemed to be sure that the actress was a lesbian, a claim that Schafer disagrees with.

"Hunter Schafer is a lesbian. Congratulations lesbians. You've taken from me the one thing that matters most," read the tweet, as reported by Advocate.com.

Schafer instead replied, saying that as much as she wished the post was true, she was unfortunately not lesbian. She said she identified as bi or pansexual.


While her explanation did not clear up the air and left fans more confused than they had been, one thing everyone could agree on is that despite her sexuality, they all supported and celebrated her.



In December 2020, rumors began making rounds after the actress spent plenty of time with Massima Desire. Seeing them together sparked much speculation about Schafer's dating life, but she did not deny nor confirm them.


Desire, originally from Iowa, came to New York City for college over a decade ago and never returned home. As a student, she often took up modeling gigs, and it was not until recently that she began modeling seriously and signed with Next Management.

She has, however, walked the runway with brands such as Marc Jacobs, Erdem, Eckhaus Latta, and Coach, and also featured in magazines such as Document, Dazed, and AnOther, among others.


In addition to being a model, Desire makes art inspired by the people and ecology around her, including tattoos and sculptural pieces.


While Schafer has not confirmed any involvement with Desire on a romantic level, what is undeniable is the close bond between her and costar Zendaya forged on set.


During an interview with V Magazine, Schafer disclosed that Zendaya was one of the closest artistic collaborators she formed a bond with, and the friendship goes beyond the screens.

Zendaya also opened up about their mutual friendship, saying she looks at Shafer as her little sister. The "Dune" actress shared that while acting was vital to them, their friendship was more important.
