Does Hilton Als Have a Partner or a Husband?

Hilton, as open as he is about matters regarding his sexuality, is equally discreet when it comes to his personal life. 

Well, he isn't always discreet. There have been moments when he has shared about his partner and boyfriends, but often, he doesn't shed much light on his dating life. 

As shared in a 2014 issue of The New York Reviewwhich goes in-depth about Hilton Als's personal life, Hilton had a love of a decade. 

He had a boyfriend whom he called K (Paywall), and he was with his partner for a decade, a romance that started in college lasting for all those years. 

There have been a couple of articles by the writer where he has mentioned having a partner.

The relationship worked nicely for both of them, but later on, there were some complications with their relationship.

As he explained, "Another time, I went to a bar to kick his ass after I’d discovered that he’d set someone up with someone I was in love with because why not, why wouldn’t he?"

He added, 

"Still, no matter how often my attempts to be with him were thwarted by his need to be cool—very few in our set were actively involved with black men; they’d sleep with them, sure, but they wouldn’t take them out in the world; relationships didn’t look like that—I couldn’t get my heart around this act of love.

Later on, the two stopped talking, but Hilton and his former partner were still in each other's lives for some reason. 

He said, "Eventually, our tension exploded—or, rather, I exploded. I stopped speaking to him once various aspects of his life—other boyfriends, other projects—kept inserting themselves into my separate relationships and projects."

Als, later on, decided to pay him back for his insecurity, " I paid him back for his insecurity and entitlement by denying him my language—the talk that got him excited over the phone and in person."
