90 Day Fiance – First Gay Couple: All Eyes On Bashar Drummond
Ever since TLC’s 90 Day Fiance debuted on January 2014, fans got to meet international and bi-racial couples composed of a male and female. But now, it looks like the franchise has opened its door to the LGBTQIA community with its first-ever same-sex couple.
Bashar Drummond shared via hashtag on Instagram that he and his boyfriend (now fiance) will be on 90 Day Fiance next season. In his social media posts, although he shares plenty of pics of the pair, he refers to his fiance from Cebu City, Philippines as Bambino and not his given name.

As of January 11, he shared on the Grams that he and his Filipino sweetie are still waiting on the K-1 visa to come through. Bashar wrote “soon the doors to our future will be open”.
Which TLC Show Will They Be On?
Based on Bashar Drummond’s IG posts, the pair met in the Philippines and seem to hve gotten engaged in 2018. By the looks of it, they already have plans on their future life as a married couple in the US and will make their home in Las Vegas.
Given that the couple is yet to be married and still awaiting the fiance visa, it is likely that they will join either 90 Day Fiance Season 7 or 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days. In fact, there’s a question of whether they might be on more than one given all his hashtags.
90 Day Fiance Fans Ecstatic To See More Diversity
As soon as the news of a same-sex couple cast on 90 Day Fiance surfaced online, fans were thrilled. With more gender diversity, the show is sure to stir up interest. TLC will likely draw more viewers from the LGBTQIA community.
It looks like the first gay couple will be one of the most talked-about cast members of the upcoming season. Considering all the drama that went down with the previous couples, let’s hope these guys are more compatible.
Other Possible Cast Members Revealed
Meanwhile, other cast members of 90 Day Fiance were revealed recently. Darcey Silva was seen filming in New York City for 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way. She’s reportedly heading to the UK to find love with her British sweetie Tom Brooks.
Chantel and Pedro, on the other hand, will take part on 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After. Other cast members believed to join the spinoff include Larissa Christina, Colt Johnson, Ashley Martson, and Jay Smith.
