Gavin Mcinnes Wiki
Gavin Mcinnes was born on 17 July 1970 in Hitchin, England, Great Britain, the son of Loraine and James McInnes. Although he was born in England, he is actually of Scottish descent, as both his parents are from Scotland. After spending some time in the United Kingdom, his parents decided to move to Canada in search of better opportunities. At the time of the move, Gavin was only 4 years old. He graduated from the Earl of March Secondary School in Ottawa and also joined an Ottawa-based punk band called Anal Chinook.
Despite his flair for music, Gavin would later earn two different degrees from two different universities. He received his first degree in English Literature from Carleton University and his second degree in Business Administration from Concordia University.

In 1994, Gavin Mcinnes, along with Shane Smith and Suroosh, founded Alvi Vice, a magazine and website that prints articles on art and culture. Although Vice was founded in Montreal, Canada, it is currently based in New York. Later, the magazine evolved into a record label and film production company, collectively known as Vice Media. Gavin had to travel from Canada to the USA, more precisely to New York, to be able to make this expansion a reality. Unlike Shane and Suroosh, Gavin contributed some written content for Vice. He has written articles and books like The VICE Guide to Happiness with tips for a happy life. The VICE Guide to Picking Up Chicks, Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll were also written by Gavin Mcinnes. They all offer tips on how to enjoy the thrill of sex, drugs, and rock and roll.
Gavin Mcinnes has also done some projects on the Vice Dos and Don’ts: 10 years of street fashion reviews by VICE magazine. Mcinnes was also featured in The Vice Guide to Travel alongside Hollywood comedian David Cross. The couple traveled to China in 2006 together with Shane Smith, Trace Crutchfield, Derrick Beckles, David Cloe, and Johnny Knoxville. On their journey, they explored dangerously remote places, and the adventure was filmed and broadcast on VBS.tv for public viewing. The show was directed by Eddy Moretti and Shane Smith. It was aired in 15 episodes with very good ratings.
Career After Vice
Two years after Gavin Mcinnes appeared in the documentary The Vice Guide to Travel, he launched the ultimate lifestyle website for hipsters, StreetCarnage.com. He also co-founded an advertising agency called Rooster, wrote a book called How to Piss in Public, directed a documentary about his stand-up comedy tour called The Brotherhood of the Travelling Rants. Gavin Mcinnes finally split from Vice in 2013. He took an indefinite leave of absence from the position of Chief Creative Officer he held at Rooster as a result of a controversial online publication directed against the transgender community of the United States of America.
Over the years, Gavin McInnes has collected several filmography credits, including an episode of Kenny vs. Spenny; a Canadian television show that included several contests for participants in 2006. He was a guest juror on the show. He also appeared in two comic short films entitled Sophie Can Walk (2008) and Asshole (2009), in which he was cast as himself.
In 2010 he starred in A Million in the Morning, a documentary film which he hosted. He also played a role in Soul Quest Overdrive (2010), a TV animated series in which he played the role of Mick, which was broadcast on Cartoon Network. In 2013 he starred in Chadd Harbold’s American comedy How to Be a Man, in which he appeared as Mark McCarthy. Gavin was cast as Scott in the American-French science fiction movie Creative Control (2015). In the same year, he also played a supporting role as a record producer in Robert Edwards One More Time. In 2016 he was a comedian in the American love drama Long Nights and Short Mornings.
Gavin also has a thriving YouTube channel with a large number of subscribers. He uses the platform to spread his patriarchal and conservative views.
Family, Wife, Kids, Gay
Gavin Mcinnes is married to Emily Jendrisak, who works in Manhattan as a publicist and consultant. She is a member of the Ho-Chunk tribe of Native Americans, which consists of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, and Illinois. Mcinnes has been married to his wife since 2005 and they have three children together.
McInnes is publicly homophobic and transphobic. Against this background, it can be said with certainty that the chances of him being gay are very small. In view of the fact that Gavin McInnes has been happily married for more than 13 years and there are practically no public marital problems, I think he is in the clear as far as suspicion of homosexuality is concerned.

Gavin Mcinnes Net Worth
Gavin Mcinnes’s net worth is estimated at approximately $50 million and is expected to include the proceeds from his time at Vice, his YouTube channel, and his shares in Rooster. However, it is believed that if Gavin had stayed with Vice, he would have had impetuous net worth. This assumption arises from the fact that Shane and Suroosh, his co-founders of Vice, have a net worth of $1 billion and $400 million respectively.
