Kal Penn is gay, engaged to partner Josh

Kal Penn revealed that he is engaged to his partner Josh, with whom he has been in a relationship for 11 years, in an interview with People on Sunday.

The soon-to-be married couple met while Penn, 44, had taken a break from shopping to work in the White House under President Obama’s administration.

He wrote all about their love story – including their not-so-good first date – in his memoir, “You Can’t Be Serious.”

According to Penn, Josh showed up at his apartment with an 18-pack of Coors Light and immediately switched TV channels to watch Nascar.

“I was thinking, ‘This is obviously not going to work out,'” he recalled, continuing, “I have a day off from the White House, and this guy sees ironic cars driving around and turning left?”

A few months later, Penn found out watching Nascar every Sunday with Josh, and the rest is history.

The “Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle” star also opened up to explore his sexuality.

“I discovered my own sexuality relatively late in life compared to many other people,” he said. “There’s no timeline on this. People find out their s – t at different times in their lives, so I’m glad I did when I did.”

Penn has not shared many photos of Josh on social media, which is likely due to the fact that he does not “love attention” and tends to “shy away from the limelight.”

However, a picture that Penn posted on June 27 during Pride in NYC shows him out with a group of four other men, including Josh. He has a cap on the back and is standing next to Kal for the group shot.

He also shows up next to Penn in another photo from the same weekend, this time at a table with three different friends and a dog.

“A very fun NYC Sunday. Happy Pride everyone!” Penn subtitles the two pictures.
