“This has been a crazy year and I have survived many many things… including some very recent lows…”
Frankie Grande is celebrating 19 months of being sober. The reality TV star said that despite living through some recent lows, which he didn’t go into, his 19 months of continuous sobriety was “testament to how hard I am working and how wonderful the support I am receiving is”.
The star, who recently revealed that he was in a threeway relationship, took to social media to say that he felt happy, joyous and free after giving up booze one year and seven months ago.

A note from the editor.
These are tough times for us all. Without a doubt. But we're here for you and want to continue being here for you for the foreseeable future. THEGAYUK.com needs your help to survive. Due to the nature of the articles that we publish, we find it very hard to monetize our site and have been heavily restricted by ad platforms. This leaves us two ways of making money to keep this site going. 1) We run an online shop which we encourage you to visit and if you can make a purchase and 2) We run popup shops at the prides we media partner with. As you'll no doubt be aware the majority of pride events have been cancelled or postponed for 2020, which leaves our site at risk of closure.
Around 70 per cent of our funding comes from these popup shops. So we have a severe funding shortfall for 2020.
If just 100 people who use this site each donated £2 per month we'd be able to pay for the hosting for the rest of the year - meaning we can continue to keep THEGAYUK online. Please, if you can, consider donating £2 or whatever you can to keep us going.
