Gay Rumors On Tucker: Covering News About The LGBT Community
Even though Tucker’s personal life is transparent, many of his admirers continue to query his sexuality, claiming him to be gay. He is an outspoken advocate of the gay community, as evidenced by the program devoted to them.
Tucker Carlson Tonight features a segment about an inclusiveness training course for teachers using the acronym LGGBDTTTIQQAAP, which stands for lesbian, gay, genderqueer, bisexual, demisexual, transgender, transsexual, two-spirit, intersex, queer, questioning, asexual, allies, pansexual, and polyamorous.
While speculators may have labeled him as gay because of his support for the LGBT community, this does not constitute him one. And if it wasn’t enough to dispel the LGBT accusations, he is married to a beautiful woman with whom he has four children.
