Andrew Gillium Met Gay Hook-Up on Grindr


Last year married former Tallahassee mayor Andrew Gillum left the political arena in disgrace after being found unconscious in a Miami hotel with two male sex workers [click here if you missed that]. 

In Gillum's latest interview with GQ Magazine one of his sex partners claim they met on the gay hook-up app Grindr...

Although the Miami New Times reported that [Travis] Dyson and Gillum had met the previous spring, Dyson told me the reporter had misunderstood him. In fact, Dyson said, the two first connected a week or two prior on the gay-dating app Grindr and in the days since had met up multiple times for paid sexual encounters. He said Andrew passed out after taking “G,” an ecstasy-type drug often used by gay men to enhance their sex drives, which when combined with alcohol can knock people out. He said that on that night and others, both he and Andrew used G and other drugs.
Dyson acknowledged taking photos and videos, and sending some of them to friends, but said he took them in order to be able to later show Andrew what had happened. He said he then took care of Andrew for several hours before accidentally overdosing himself. He said the third man in the police report, whom I could not reach for comment, was another client who had never met Andrew and called 911 after showing up for a separate appointment.
“Everything I did was trying to help Andrew,” insisted Dyson, who said the incident has also scrambled his life: He and his fiancé separated, he was forced to leave his graduate nursing program, and he now pays the bills by selling nudes and porn on OnlyFans.
