Is David Fumero Gay?
Considering the fact that he has a lovely family, David Fumero’s sexuality should not be in doubt. Nevertheless, there are some rumors on the internet that seem to question his sexuality. On the 24th of August 2016, it was reported that gay porn star Billy Santaro posted a video clip on his website that features a man alleged to be David Fumero having sex with his (Billy Santaro) husband Seth Santaro. Billy also claimed the man in question (alleged to be David), asked him to take down the video clip.
Although David never confirmed or denied this allegation, the fact that he tweeted in support of the approval of gay marriage in New York, in 2011, only gives this allegation more impetus. Therefore, the jury is still out on David Fumero’s sexuality and only time will tell if he is straight, bi-sexual, or outrightly gay.
