Owen Jones Gay, Girlfriend, Family

Very few journos in the West are as articulate with their leftist ideologies than the English columnist Owen Jones.

The revered journalist garnered a mass following because of his pieces on The Independent and The Guardian. His articles on publications including Le Monde Diplomatique and The Sunday Mirror were equally instrumental.

His liberal rhetorics are subject of politically-themed books such as Chavs: The Demonization of the Working Class and The Establishment and How They Get Away With It.

Beyond print media, Owen is now transitioning into a TV political pundit. Offering his sharp commentary, he made appearances on ITV, Sky News, and BBC television networks.

Bio - Age, Family, Ethnicity & Height

Owen was born in Sheffield, England on 8th of August 1984. He came from a family of six. Liberalism runs in his bloodstream. After all, he and his three siblings grew up under the guardianship of their biological parents, who were members of the Labour Party.

Unfortunately, he lost his dad - once the head of a prominent labor union - to cancer in January 2018. His parents were a married couple for fifty years before his father's passing.

Now age 34, the beloved columnist probably identifies as belonging to Caucasian ethnicity because of his family background. Also, he stands beyond the 5 feet and 7 inches (1.7 m) in height.

Education & Salary

A native of Sheffield, Owen spent his formative years in Stockport, Greater Manchester. It is there that he recieved his high school education. For college though, he traveled to the United States. In 2005, he graduated from the University College, Oxford with a History degree.

After University, the published author didn't immediately jump into journalism but, began working as a trade union lobbyist and parliamentary researcher.

Owen's foray into the world of media proved a fruitful endeavor. Insiders argue that he pockets over six-sum figure in salary, working as a broadcaster, political commentator, author, and columnist.

Dating Life - Girlfriend Or Gay Partner?

A staunch supporter of same-sex marriage, Owen himself is a gay man.

However, for a majority of his teenage life, he identified as bisexual. And hence, it meant that he began dating multiple girlfriends between then and until his coming out of the closest moment.

When he touched 20 though, the leftist journo finally came out as gay to his family over a Thanksgiving dinner. Momentarily distraught by the news, his family eventually came terms with his sexuality.

After the not-so-grand gay reveal, Owen no longer used girlfriends as "the beard" and began dating male partners.

About Owen Jones' Boyfriends

Owen's boyfriend, however, didn't receive the same level of support as he did. In his heartwrenching July 2018 piece for The Guardian, he revealed how the conversion therapy spiraled his first boyfriend into meth addiction.

Earlier that year, he had penned an equally devastating article for The Guardian following his dad's death. In it, the revered journo opened up about watching his partner succumb to cancer.
