When a man plays a gay role on screen and is often verbal about the support of gay right and gay pride, the man is often speculated to be a gay in real life too.

The story matches with Netflix's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Tituss Burgess, who has played a gay role on screen and has often been open about expressing his thoughts on gay rights.

Such acts, sometimes, have led people to speculate him to be a gay man. But is he a gay in real life or does he have a female partner, a girlfriend or a wife to shut those rumors for good? Let's dig in to find out!

Tituss Burgess: An On Screen Gay But A Real Life Gay? Has A Girl In Life To Shut Those Rumors?

In the Netflix's monster hit 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,' Tituss Burgess portrayed the role of Titus Andromedon, a struggling black gay actor in NYC. 

When he first auditioned for the role, he saw a lot of parallels between himself and the Titus character, while he also thought that he inspired the role. He explained it in his own words,

"I thought, 'Wow, did they really write something for me, or is it just coincidence?'" 

He also added,

"Several of my friends called me wanting to see if I could coach on them"

Burgess also added that the project was his career changing project.

"I've never been famous before. I got stopped all the time for theater, but this is a whole different thing."

Moreover, in a recent interview, on May 2017, he discussed the role where he said,

"We share some similarities, but we are quite not alike. However, I know this man very well, and I know his struggle very well, and I know his eccentricities really well, and so getting inside of it is a piece of cake,"

"Since the show has been out, though, when I meet people, sometimes they’re really disappointed—no, maybe perplexed—that I’m not s—ting glitter."

Now, as you might know, he has portrayed the role to full precision, and that is what made people often wonder if the guy is a gay in real life as well.

Not only that, but he has also been vocal about the gay rights and even made an appearance in gay parades, which added more fuel to the fire regarding the speculation.

Furthermore, Tituss has also posted about this over on Instagram on June 15, 2017.

So is he really a gay in real life? Or does he have a female partner like his wife or his girlfriend who shall help him falsify the rumors?

Well, he has been a man of few words regarding his romantic union and married life, and thus, his love life remains a mystery until the actor himself opens up about the matter. 

But he once posted a picture of him with his Unbreakable co-star Ellie Kemper with the hashtag reading "my wife."
