Joey Krietemeyer Short Bio
Born in May 1987 in Germany, Joey Krietemeyer is best known as a graphic artist, and the ex-boyfriend of Antoni Porowski, the actor noted for working on “Queer Eye”. Krietemeyer is 32 years old and his zodiac sign is either Taurus or Gemini. He has a sister who works as an architect. He spent his formative years in Madeira, Ohio, and was a student of Drexel University. Joey is currently working as a Senior Art Director for 1stdibs.com.
Prior to starting this job, Joey wasn’t too interested in interior design, but that soon changed. He resides in New York and the aesthetic of his home includes brick walls, big windows and no curtains – the family prefers natural sunlight.
Krietemeyer dated Antoni Porowski for seven years, but their relationship fell through, and they went their separate ways. Their fans were saddened by the news – reportedly, they were very close and “basically married” as Porowski stated in an interview.
The actor credited his ex-boyfriend for helping him come out as gay to his family – he shared a heartfelt story about how he was on a ‘plane on the tarmac thinking that if the plane crashed his parents would never know that he’s gay, and it was then that the actor sent his father an email reading “I think it’s time I tell you: I love. I am loved. His name is Joey, and we live together.” He then said that his sexuality is something private and intimate, and isn’t something he’s ashamed of.
