Is He Gay, Who Is The Boyfriend Or Husband?
The sexual orientation of the Tampa native is an open one as he admitted in an interview to being gay which puts to rest all speculations about the actor’s sexuality. He is not yet married but currently has a man in his life.
The smooth American actor was previously in a romantic relationship with a dynamic television personality and stylist known as Kylan Douglas but they broke up in December of the same year they met, leaving many wondering what actually was the cause of their split as they seemed so adorable together as a couple. However, the duo is still very close friends irrespective of their split.
If all his social media posts are anything to go by, then the Queer As Folk star has made a come back quietly on the dating scene with his new gay lover simply identified as Davis whose Twitter handle is @GuyFDavis. They met in April 2017 and after a coffee date, they have virtually become inseparable, appearing at several functions and events together. Guy Davis who is three inches taller than Robert Gant’s 6 ft 1 inch, even planned Gant’s 50th birthday in July 2018. If the love between the two love birds is as strong as it looks from the outside, then perhaps, we may be hearing the wedding bells anytime soon.
