Andrew Gillum paid male escort a number of instances for intercourse and handed out after having ‘ecstasy-type’ drug: Report

Former Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum had multiple connections with a male escort. This became known and the episode had a huge impact on his political career. According to a February 4 report in GQ, Gillum, rated an “emerging Democratic star,” was seen with a male sex worker at a Miami Beach hotel on suspicion of drugs. To keep their marriage together after this incident, Gillum and his wife Rashada Jai ​​Howard would have adopted a new dynamic of “radical honesty”.

Gillum, the 41-year-old former mayor of Tallahassee, reportedly paid Travis Dyson, the escort, several times for sexual encounters. GQ quoted Dyson as saying that Gillum passed out after taking “G,” an ecstasy-type drug commonly used by gay men to increase sex drive, which when combined with alcohol can knock out the drug has been.

Gillum ran for gubernatorial elections in the Sunshine State in 2018, but lost to incumbent GOP governor Ron DeSantis, albeit not by a large margin. After the loss, he met former President Barack Obama and told him that he was determined to make Florida “available and won over” to the Democratic candidate for president. However, Florida has not joined the blue party since the 2012 presidential election.

The Democrat told journalist Tamron Hall last year that Dyson was just his friend, but he told GQ that they met through the gay dating app Grindr. The GQ report states that when Gillum learned that the men’s magazine had also spoken to Dyson, he scrapped scheduled follow-up interviews and refused to respond to his version of events on the file.

Gillium identified as bisexual

In his interview with Hall last September, Gillum admitted that he is bisexual. “You didn’t ask the question, you published it there, whether I identify as gay. The answer is: I don’t identify as gay, but I identify as bisexual, “he said in the interview.” And I’ve never shared that publicly, “he added.

“Even today, the bisexuality of black men is primarily discussed through the lens of the“ down-low ”, the stigmatized term for men who maintain a facade of heterosexuality while secretly sleeping with other men. Bisexuality is viewed as fraudulent or even inherently shameful, which in turn can spawn some sort of self-fulfilling prophecy: If your identity is viewed as false or deviant, keeping it to yourself may feel like the only safe option ”, so the GQ piece said.

Gillum, who agreed with his wife, according to the GQ report, that the Covid-19 pandemic had saved their marriage, announced in March last year that he was entering an alcohol rehab facility. He said he saw how his father suffered from alcoholism and the effects it could have if left untreated.
