Is Shepard Smith finally coming out?

Closeted Fox News anchor Shepard Smith is listed as a “special guest” scheduled to attend an annual fundraiser for the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association next week.

I outed Smith in 2005 after he hit on me in a New York piano bar. He has never publicly acknowledged his sexual orientation.

Smith’s attendance could be good news: Maybe he’s finally going to come out. Not sure why NLGJA would have him there if that weren’t the case. There are plenty of out journalists these days to celebrate that we don’t need closet cases as our “special guests.”

Kevin Naff is the editor and a co-owner of the Washington Blade, the nation’s oldest and most acclaimed LGBT news publication, founded in 1969.

    Mr. Shepard Smith is my fiance’, and is not gay, nor bi.
    It is ridiculous to be bringing this nonsense up, yet again.
    Shepard is straight. In your dreams, Kevin, get over it, Kevin. :p

    In fact, 5 other Fox News/Fox Business anchors/correspondents will also be attending as “special guests,” in addition to Shepard Smith, so what’s your point? You only WISH Mr. Smith was gay. I know he is heterosexual (not homosexual/bisexual), an engaged man, planning to marry his fiance’e, Patricia, later this year. Again, reiterating your adolescent fantasies of Mr. Smith are completely out-of-line, Mr. Naff.

      David, You are the type of person i avoid. Angry, always in a conflict, black and white thinking, name calling etc. My opinion

      Under which criteria the Fox news is the worst news source in the world. It is sad the we have diplomats like you who do not know that many news sources in the world are politically bias. At least Fox news is a news source that reports the news and does not kiss the US president like other US news sources are blind!
