Guy Benson Opens Admits He is Gay!

Thirty-two years old political editor of Townhall.com, Guy Benson, is openly gay. He revealed his sexual orientation in May 2015 just before publishing his new book, End of Discussion: How the Left's Outrage Industry Shuts Down Debate, Manipulates Voters, and Makes America Less Free (and Fun),  which was co-authored by fellow Fox contributor, Mary Katharine Ham.

He wrote in the book,

“Guy here. So, I’m gay.” 

However, the book is not about gay issues. In an interview with buzzfeed.com on 4 May 2015, the FOX News contributor said:

“Gay rights is not something that dominates my attentions — or my passions — and that may seem incongruous, that may seem counterintuitive to a lot of people,”

He added:

“but the issues that I care about most undergird the reasons why I’m a conservative and have been forever and will be a conservative moving forward.”

Talking about gay marriage, Benson said gay marriage wouldn't affect straight marriage. He also shared that many gays have been treated unfairly for generations. He added:

"I don’t think that coming to a point of social harmony and then pushing further in this almost vengeful, ‘Let’s get ‘em,’ hounding people out of jobs … [I]t’s not productive, it’s not good for the country.” 

Benson also called the gay issue as a real obstacle and added there is not a quick fix for it.

He Married His Longtime Boyfriend Adam Wise

Fox News commentator Guy Benson tied the know with his boyfriend Adam Wise, on 10th Sep 2019. The couple wedded in a romantic ceremony held at the Charles Krug Winery in Napa Valley, California in front of about 150 of their closest friends and families.
