Covering News About LGBT Community Shimmers Gay Rumors On Tucker
Although the personal life of Tucker is clear as crystal, many of his fans still question his sexuality professing him as a gay. He is an open supporter of the gay community which is demonstrated by the program focused on those communities.
Tucker holds the segment on Tucker Carlson Tonight that focuses on an inclusivity training course for teachers using the initialism LGGBDTTTIQQAAP which stands for lesbian, gay, genderqueer, bisexual, demisexual, transgender, transsexual, two-spirit, intersex, queer, questioning, asexual, allies, pansexual, and polyamorous.
While the speculators might have professed him as a gay because of his support towards the gay community, but that does not make him a gay.
And if that's not enough to deny the gay rumors, then he has a beautiful wife with whom he shares four lovely children.
