Is Lil Dicky Gay? FX Hit Comedy ‘Dave’ Sparks Conversation on Lil Dicky’s Romantic Inclination
FX's surprise hit comedy series Dave is a more-than-semi-autobiographical show based on the 20s of American white-rapper Lil Dicky, real name David Andrew Burd.
In the drama, the musical artist portrays Dave Burd, comically depicting the high and lows of his venture of being a reputed rapper.
The show became an instant hit after its premiere on March 4, 2020. It returned for the second season on June 16, 2021, and gave insights into Burd's could-be real-life experiences.
Because of this, fans couldn't help but wonder if the comedian was gay after he sparked bromance with his co-star on the series.
Is Lil Dicky Gay?
Dave's third episode, 'The Observer, ' saw Burd filming intimate scenes with his long-time friend and co-star Benny Blanco. The twosome put on some homoerotic performances on display as they showered together in their birthday suit.
They hugged and painted each other's toenails, prompting other characters to question if they were gay.
Then, in a stark turn of events, the duo and the other cast discussed how white men had the privilege to indulge in bromance freely than black men.
As Burd and Blanco's channeled on-point chemistry in the comedy, many viewers were assured that they weren't straight in real life.

While fans shared their opinion and poured their minds on the rapper's romantic inclination, Burd has never affirmed being gay. Instead, his relationship hints otherwise.
Lil Dicky Is Dating a Woman
In an interview with GQ magazine on July 24, 2021, Burd revealed he was in a relationship. Though he didn't disclose the identity of his girlfriend, the Pennsylvania native hinted they were serious.
The 33-year-old also expressed he was sincere about the future and wanted a wife. He would go on a date every week while he was single to find a deserving significant other.
I'm at the age where if I can't envision a real future then it's a total waste of time.
The budding new romance is the first for Burd after staying single for seven years.
Previously, he was in a serious relationship with a woman, but the duo parted ways as Burd prioritized his career.
The 'Earth' creator even described his ex-girlfriend and their relationship in his song, 'Molly,' hinting he loved her even after the unfortunate breakup.
The song detailed how he went to his ex-girlfriend's marriage as a guest and explored the sorrow of the experience.
Interestingly, his followers believe that Ally, portrayed by Taylor Misiak, is based on his estranged girlfriend in the drama Dave.
In the first season of the series, Ally and Dave broke up after Ally couldn't support his burgeoning career as a rapper.
