The Fab Five is the new sensation in the town and Canadian actor Antoni Porowski is one among them.
Known for his food and wine expert role in the critically exclaimed Netflix show, Queer Eye, the actor stars alongside the likes of Jonathan Van Ness, Tan France, Karamo Brown and Bobby Berk.

Among the Queer Eye stars, Antoni Porowski is the one, who likes to prefer his sexuality as fluid sexuality, pansexual. The food expert refuses to term himself as gay.

The star further added that he never had a specific label or definition for himself. Speaking on the May’s edition of Gay Times magazine the star added:
"Some people want to define themselves and they should as it is part of their identity. For me personally, I’ve never really had a label for myself."
By sexual fluidity, the star’s meant that it was not just about being a bisexual as it limited his choice range from man and woman. His rebellious nature meant that he never wanted to be labeled with a specific term but be known as Antoni.
"The term bisexual means [he] can only like girls and guys” and I don’t want to deny potentially liking “something else” in the future. Maybe it’s just my rebellious nature. I’m me, I’m Antoni, and I’m all these things.”
The star further opened up about his sexuality and accepted that at that moment he was a gay because he was in a romantic relationship with a guy.
"Today I’m gay – I’m in a gay relationship – and that’s where I am. That’s good enough for me."
Well, sorry news for Antoni's fans, the star, who stands at the height of 6 feet(1.83 meters), is in a romantic relationship with a gay partner and is happy with his husband like figure.
Happy With Long-Term Partner
The star is living a blissful dating life with his partner of 7 years, Joey Krietemeyer.
The loved-up duo live together in a posh apartment at Brooklyn NewYork and regularly update about their relationship in Instagram be it a night out in a lavish restaurant in the big apple, or lazily spending the weekend at home.
And on the occasion of Valentine's Day 2018, the celebrity chef arranged a lovely platter filled with goodies and presented it to his boyfriend.
