James was reputed to be bisexual, which technically, includes being gay.



According to filmmaker Samuel Fuller, who made the film I Shot Jesse James in 1949: "Jesse James, as a teenager, was a female impersonator. He would dress as a girl and lure soldiers into his cabin like a whore, get them drunk, then his brother Frank would come in, kill them and rob them... He became a hero in the folklore, but Jesse James was a despicable character. The first train he robbed was full of wounded soldiers. He killed and robbed the wounded soldiers."




Fuller echoed this sentiment in his autobiography, calling James, "bisexual, masquerading as a girl to hold up trains that were carrying medical supplies. The guy was a low-down thief, a pervert, and a sonofabitch. But you couldn't show that stuff on a screen back then, demystifying one of the great American icons."


Although considered on outlaw of the "Old West," James and his cohorts never ventured further west than Minnesota and east Texas. They never operated west of the continental divide.
