David Fumero has been in show business since 1997, and the two nominations for awards he has received testify to his excellent and professional acting skills, which he has brought to the entertainment industry.

Is David Fumero Gay?
Given the fact that he has a lovely family, David Fumero’s sexuality should not be questioned. Nevertheless, there are some rumors on the Internet that seem to call his sexuality into question. On August 24, 2016, it was reported that gay porn star Billy Santaro published a video clip on his website showing a man who allegedly is David Fumero having sex with his (Billy Santaro) husband Seth Santaro. Billy also claimed that the man in question (allegedly David) asked him to turn off 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.
