Coming out as gay and accepting who you are is a courageous thing to do. The same can be said about Billy as he is openly a gay and he also stated that he came to know that he was a gay when Billy was at college. Also, he often jokes that he was gay as soon as he oozed out of his mother's womb.

In the video, he often jokes that his father passed away when he knew he was gay but the truth is that his father was supportive of him when it comes to Bill's sexuality.

Now we know that Billy is a gay, we take a look at his dating life. Has he been dating anyone lately or is open to dating and having a partner in his life?

Well, so far, Billy has not been reported to be dating anyone, and he too has not revealed anything about his love life. But in an interview, he said that he is on all social dating apps, and that might give a clue as to him being open to dating gay men. 

He said,

“I’m on all the apps. Tinder, Grindr, Bumble, Scruff. I have no shame about that. And to be honest — not to sound holier than thou — I do miss the days before Grindr,”

He then added that gay men do not need apps to date,

 “I had about five years as a gay guy in New York after college before the whole Grindr explosion happened, where people were still going out to meet each other. It was social. It was sexually charged. And it was more fun.”

Some sources say that Billy is the partner of country musician Ty Herndon. But no confirmation from either party has come forthSo let us see if he comes up with any exciting news on his dating life.

Oh, and by the way, his first crush, none other than Keith Hernandez, the first baseman for the 1986 New York Mets!

Furthermore, an example of him not being ashamed of his sexuality was seen when he kissed publicly to honor "the Trevor Project" on its 16th anniversary.

Eichner had something to say on the very occasion.

“We’ve made a lot of headway. It’s about showing as many representations of gay people as you can, and I do think that’s happening.” 

Glad to know that they are standing up as one.

For those who are wondering if he is married, well, he is not that big fan of getting married as in an interview he said that his married friends are boring. So one might assume that he is not yet married.
