Most of the TV personalities, actors and other famous people are open about their relationship issues or sexual orientation while few have chosen to baffle us. TV actor Daniel Levy falls in the latter as the allegedly Pansexual one has admitted to being gay.
Yes! The MTV Canada's host, who portrays the role of a Pansexual guy "David Rose" on CBC's television sitcom Schitt's Creek (alongside his father Catherine O'Hara, Annie Murphy, and Chris Elliott), actually prefers men to women.
Dan, however, was never really familiar with Pansexuality before he did the role on TV. In an interview in 2016, he said, “I hadn’t seen pansexuality on TV before."
Furthermore, in an interview with Variety.com, he was questioned what he thought about his role as a Pansexual character.
He talked about how the sexuality of the character fit with his personality, and the primary goal of nature was to prove that sexuality is not a part of a person's personality but something that can perhaps compliment it. He talked about how it set an example, recounting an encounter with a fan where a girl talked about how his character influenced her family.
His words were along the lines of,
A girl came up to me on the street and said the show changed the dynamic in her family. Her brother’s gay, and her parents had never accepted him. But by watching the way that Johnny and Moira interact with David in our show — how accepting they are — it was able to inform this girl’s parents in ways they hadn’t seen before. You often forget, because you’re so inside it, that television has power. And for us, any chance we get to project a world where things are good and right, that’s all we can hope to do.

However, in real life, he is sexually gay which has been the reason why he had given no answers to queries of wife or girlfriend.
It was mentioned in one of MTV's articles that MTV has been promoting gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual related shows to respect adversity and respect the life-long struggles of the gay community.
On the other hand, many have argued saying MTV has adopted pro-LGBT policy only because of the challenges and embarrassment they have to face in the real world if they don't comply with the pro-LGBT atmosphere.
