Right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos has declared himself ‘ex-gay’ and ‘sodomy free’ and said he wants to rehabilitate ‘conversion therapy’ as he called transsexuals ‘demonic’ and vowed to ‘devote’ himself to the Catholic Church.
The 36-year-old, who became the poster boy for the alt-right due to his misogynistic, racist and homophobic rants, claimed he is no longer gay and likened homosexuality to ‘addiction’ and ‘being an alcoholic’ three years after he wed his boyfriend in Hawaii.
Yiannopoulos told LifeSite he plans to dedicate the next 10 years to revive the widely banned practice of conversion therapy that aims to forcibly change an individual’s sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, claiming it does work.’
The British ex-pat, who once endorsed sex between ‘younger boys’ and older men, fanned the flames of anti-LGBTQ+ sentiment once again by hitting out at the ‘Terror of transsexuals’ and saying ‘Tranniees are demonic.’
Yiannopoulos told the right-wing website he ‘wasn’t entirely joking’ when he said he ‘became gay’ to annoy his mom and questioned how anyone could be ‘wholly at home in the gay lifestyle.’
‘When I used to kid that I only became gay to torment my mother, I wasn’t entirely joking,’ he said.
‘Of course, I was never wholly at home in the gay lifestyle — Who is? Who could be? — and only leaned heavily into it in public because it drove liberals crazy to see a handsome, charismatic, intelligent gay man riotously celebrating conservative principles.’
The firebrand likened his former life as a gay man to ‘degeneracy’ and said he felt it was ‘all I deserved.’
The 36-year-old, who once compared feminism to cancer, said his husband John had been ‘demoted to housemate’ but brushed off any suggestion of heartbreak because he said he showers him in designer goods.
‘The guy I live with has been demoted to housemate, which hasn’t been easy for either of us,’ he said.
Despite claiming he is now no longer gay, he said he had ‘slipped once’ in the last 250 days.
It is not clear if he is still legally married to his long-term boyfriend who he wed in fall 2017.
Yiannopoulos’ latest hateful comments mark just the latest in a long line of controversies for the Cambridge University dropout.
