Right-wing troll Milo Yinnopoulos has crawled out from obscurity to declare that he now identifies as “ex-gay” and is committed to advocating on behalf of the conversion therapy movement.
“I was never wholly at home in the gay lifestyle — Who is? Who could be?” he said in an interview with the very Christian and very homophobic LifeSiteNews. “[I] only leaned heavily into it in public because it drove liberals crazy to see a handsome, charismatic, intelligent gay man riotously celebrating conservative principles.”
In an interview so absurd we had to double-check it wasn’t satire, Yinnopoulos casts himself as a martyr who’s fully committed to living a gay-free life.
Here’s how he describes it:
I’ve always thought of myself as a Jack Bauer sort of figure — the guy who does the hideous, inexcusable things no one else can stomach, without which the Republic will fall. I know that means my name will always be cursed, and I’ll always be a scorned outsider, so the temptation is to throw out any consideration of living well or truthfully. But even Jack Bauer has to confront his maker sooner or later.
“But wait, isn’t he married to a man?” you might be asking but probably aren’t as it would require having remembered anything about him.
Yes, he is. And his new ex-gay status has really shaken up his home life.
“The guy I live with has been demoted to housemate,” he explains, “which hasn’t been easy for either of us. It helps that I can still just about afford to keep him in Givenchy and a new Porsche every year. Could be worse for him, I guess.”
The cherry on top of this turd sundae is Yinnopoulos’ vow to “help rehabilitate what the media calls ‘conversion therapy,'” “given [his] new spiritual preoccupations.”
And here we thought we couldn’t like him any less.
He’s lying, he’s broke, he was just crying about money not long ago.
He made a deal with some right wing organization to become a spokesperson for conversation therapy and they’re probably paying for his rent and hair treatments for a year.
Yes, indeed. He was down-and-out and desperate after whatever the last outrage was that led to all his media and speaking gigs being cancelled. He bleated about it at the time. So there’s no way he’s keeping his “housemate’ in Givenchy and buying him a new Porsche every year. I’m willing to bet the boyfriend has been keeping him. The only vaguely intriguing thing about this preposterous story is how much Milo is being paid to spout this nonsense. He only ever does anything for money.
I lied to myself, family, and friends for 28 years out of embarrassment and fear of retribution; all because of the brainwashing I had received since childhood about the evils of homosexuality. I remember awakening in a sweat from the “nightmare” of having dreamt of making love to a handsome and sexy man. I hated myself and considered suicide on many occasions.
Milo Y was already consigned to the dustbin of history but I guess he’s decided to crawl to the absolute bottom! “Ex-gay”? Are you kidding us? Seriously, Miss Right-Wing Thing?
His husband should cut his losses and flee!
Unfortunately, if he divorces Milo, he may have to pay alimony to that scrub.
Who is the handsome, charismatic, intelligent gay man he is referring to?
There it is. HA!
Man About Town
That’s how self-aware he is!
My thought exactly. His pudgy face and slits for eyes are not what anyone thinks as handsome. SO he is going to be the poster boy for conversion therapy? LOL LOL OK! Why not speak for CB radios while you are at it Milo? I am surprised there are people who still think conversion therapy is still an option for anyone? HE made a ton of money ( and blew it like a coke whore) being that gay nazi but he is no longer the only one so is probably broke and the only way to make money since he is too lazy to hold a real job is to spout more nonsense. GO AWAY and take your husband, boyfriend, roomie, or whatever you call each other with you
I do not know much about this fool, but does anyone care what drivel he spouts?
I sure as hell DO NOT!
I wonder what he’s sitting on, to make him spew all this crap?
Yinnopoulos found out his Trump supporter gravy train broke down. Now he doesn’t have the gay community or them. So he is f*cked.
I predicted he’d do this, years ago. He’d never struck me as a real gay man, just the frat-boy idea of what a gay man is like. I even doubted his “marriage” was real…and here we go.
“Turd sundae”. Now that’s one for the books.
he’s committing to whoever will pay him.
When he was a gay Uncle Tom he was of some value to the alt-right and the other creepy right wing fringes (showing people that some LGBT folks “know their place”). Now he is just another “converted gay” that will wear out his welcome pretty quickly as his act falls apart.
it drove liberals crazy to see a handsome, charismatic, intelligent gay man riotously celebrating conservative principles.”
Did anyone, let alone liberals, ever consider him handsome, charismatic or intelligent?:
Barely attractive, somewhat clever (in an adolescent and mean spirited way), mendacious and relentlessly self-promoting is more like it.
In that picture he looks more bloated and dissipated than barely attractive though.
He looks like a gay Gollum.
Those bags under his eyes are certainly not Louis Vuitton!
Dude, get a life.
Good god this guy needs to stop existing.
psychotic break? way too many drugs? looking for a new group to fleece? grifter gonna grift
Oh this is hysterical!! (I shouldn’t have clicked, but just could not help myself.) LOL!!
Sad that he’s grabbing at straws to stay relevant but can only manage to generate pity and disgust. And I’ve never heard anyone refer to this loser as handsome, charismatic, or intelligent. EVER! so no big loss to the gay community. The ex gays can have him. I’m sure we’ll all see him at some point sucking dick in the Penn Station bathrooms like he usually does with his broke ass.
The only way to stay relevant is to seek God in everything that you do. Milo is such great fun. I’m so glad that he’s on his way to rejecting this lifestyle. like many of you he was groomed and sexually assaulted as a child, a minor. His interview on Michael Voris’ Church Militant show a couple of years ago is one of the most powerful and human things I’ve ever witnessed. He is brilliant. Two brilliant men confronting sin. There’s so much courage to admire. Milo is a natural leader. He’s not going to be stuck. He will change and grow which few people do. He will continue to entertain with his brilliant wit.
There, are no Ex-Gays!
Girl tried to be gay Ann Coulter and failed. He was done the second Trump got elected and didn’t give him any kind of preferential access. Yiannopoulos tries to brand himself as a writer, provocateur, and contrarian, but he’s just a random guy who doesn’t have any political or meaningful social influence.
He bought the line that the alt-right fed him that his opinion mattered. The second he wasn’t a useful sideshow any more, they dropped him like a Trump wife who turned 55.
Next he’ll find god and do a tell all interview with Pat Robertson.
No way. Pat Robertson would be headed backwards. Milo is a Catholic soul. His next tell-all interview will certainly be with Michael Voris on church militant.
Gurl, you love dick way too much. Sit your silly a$$ down. You’re ex-gay? Sure Jan…
He just couldn’t get laid anymore because he is such a self-loathing douche. He’ll meet lots of horny boys at conversation camp – easy pickings.
hahahahaha! not gay?! look at her!
Aren’t people strange. He says he’s no longer gay. Well, I say I no longer have brown eyes.
The great reset is the holy sacrament of confession by which grace from God you can overcome any human weakness. You can go every damned day of the week and get the sacrament and arm yourself. It’s tremendously powerful. There’s no more joyful feeling than to walk out of the confessional. It’s like walking on air.
yeah especially if you gave the priest a nice… er… atonement 🙂
focus on YOUR own weakness you douche
I tell you what is REALLY “walking in air.” It’s getting dick loving head from a “priest-in-training” who swallows. That’s HEAVEN. And, oh yeah, sucking HIM off too. And SWALLOWING! Are we clear now about the issue? Because I sure AM /|\
OK……..so now we have a confession from another brainless believer in fantasy!
It is hard to believe that there are still simple folk out there who think like my dog but got the spelling reversed.
I assume such make believe thoughts make those who spew nonsense feel good but to replace science with personal assurance of a Hebrew Zombie who was a masochist and whose Daddy was a sadist is the ultimate in genuine stupidity!
Nothing will change until Church and state are 100% separated so what are we waiting for?
Sexual Fluidity! He can identify as he wants, and we should ALL respect that. Isn’t that the Post-Modernist Queer credo? Or does that apply only when convenient? If he says he’s straight, he’s straight. Just as Gay-4-Pay pornstars are straight, just as ‘straight’ escorts are straight, just like all those married men on Grindr who are not gay but rather… Men who Sleep with Men…
So, good on you Milo! I recognize your straightness just as we’re forced to recognize Markus Kage as straight too.
Eh. Whenever something like this happens folks can’t help but try to connect things that aren’t connected. Sexual fluidity and contradictions don’t have anything to do with this. Milo isn’t even saying he’s been experimenting fluidity, confusions or contradictions. He’s pretty much saying he only ever embraced a “gay” identity just to troll people, for attention and because he wanted to standout from other hateful “Conservatives”. Very different stuff.
Your trolling comment would be cute except for the fact that Milo is now working with a group not only labeled a hate group, but one that advocates parents sending their kids there to be abused to try to beat them into being straight.
So mock away as you clap for a man who is now advocating organizations that not only have been called out as being fraudulent by many of their founders, but that have been responsible for abusing kids and causing suicides.
YOU’RE COMMENT AS TO LET PEOPLE IDENTIFY AS THEY WISH IS IGNORANT.
HE’S SAYING HE IS AN EX GAY. NO SUCH THING EXISTS. DENYING YOUR SEXUALITY IS JUST THAT. DENIAL. STOP THE IGNORANCE.
YOUR Dad is gay. EVERYONE in WEHO has had him. And every one of those guys got an STD from him. Oh YES, girl. /|\
Crawling out from under his rock for yet another desperate attempt at attention/money.
1. He didn’t go through any therapy, so he has no special standing to advocate for “conversion therapy.”
2. He does not claim to be heterosexual. Since he is going the Roman Catholic route, that almost certainly means celibacy. Of course, this whole drama is almost certainly just one more stunt and in a few months or a year, this will fall by the wayside and he will announce something else to keep himself in the spotlight.
3. This guy is a tragic waste. He is actually fairly intelligent and well-spoken. He might have been a credible challenge to the ideological orthodoxy that smothers the LGB community. But it became clear very early on that he was nothing more than a minstrel act, spewing the most outlandish nonsense for applause, clicks and views. It ceased to be funny when he started making straight-up homophobic arguments, identical to that which you might read on the websites of the Family Research Council or the American Family Association. What a mess of a human being.
It’s all been rather yawn-worthy for a while with him. And the media is partly at fault for ever giving him a platform and attention and continuing to do so. No matter his identities, lifestyle, the dimensions of his sexuality, where he is in the romantic, sexual, affection, emotional investment, relationship commitment spectrum- it’s been apparent that he used gayness and effeminacy to construct a persona, to troll “Liberals” and to differentiate himself. And this statement is nothing more than continuing to construct a persona, still being obsessed with trolling people and still desperately trying to be “different” in order validate himself, validate his hatred and get attention. It’s all rather lame and transparent. But the media just can’t help but give these people (particularly if they’re white and halfway decent looking) a platform and some attention.
He forgets we do not choose to be gay – not even him. Clearly, he is on a fund-raising mission again and has to be more outrageous than the last time he opened his desperate mouth. The question is this – is he, or has he ever been, relevant to anyone other than himself? Apart from his husband and extended family I suspect the answer to be a resounding no.
You don’t really know anything about his sexuality or his sense of self. You don’t know anything about anyone outside of what they present and what identities they embrace. Once again, people are making this an identity and choice argument, which in 2021 is rather lame and old-fashion. Milo is trash and his use of “gayness” has always been trash and troll-like. That is separate from telling someone who they are or trying to dictate identities. The answer is to be more dismissive of identity politics and to stop being so dependent on representation politics. That’s the only way to whittle down scum like Milo.
Word it however you want, but your comment is supporting the bigoted, anti-LGBTQ argument that LGBTQ people make a casual decision to be that way.
Ask any gay person fired from their job, lesbian raped to make her straight, or trans person who is beaten nearly to death because of who they are why they don’t just decide to identify as something else and I’d be curious to see the answers you’d get.
@Cam: “people are making this an identity and choice argument, which in 2021 is rather lame and old-fashion[ed]. … The answer is to be MORE DISMISSIVE of identity politics….” [emphasis added]
Donston is in agreement with you, or mostly so, and you’re imagining things he didn’t write.
I realize your next non sequitur will be to say anyone who agrees with Donston is a multiple screen name of Donston. But in this case that would include YOU.
Donston was not wanting to use labels. i.e. gay, bi, lesbian, trans, Pan etc. And that is what I was speaking against.
He needs to run into a group of baseball bat carrying rednecks in a dark alley.
the only thing this girl loves more than d!ck is attention.
It’s weird to me how people think using homosexuality or homo behaviors to shame others actually combats homophobia or anti-gay agenda. That type of shit just shows how a lot of supposed “out and proud” people contend with internalized homophobia and gay shame themselves. We need to come up with better ways to counteract this type of hatred, narcissism and anti-gay agendas. It can’t just continue to be juvenile shit about someone “still liking dick”, which barely has anything to do with being homosexual or gay identifying or overall homo-leaning.
A lot of y’all come off almost as ignorant, hateful and problematic as Milo.
Calling out hypocrisy is completely valid. Yet it seems to enrage you.
Milo is no more an ex-gay than trump is an ex-conman, xenophobe, racist or Nazi. Milo obviously will always be gay, there is no cure so really he’s the one “using” homosexuality as his “tool”. Being schooled by the above replier who, of course offers no intelligent way to deal with Milo’s type just a scolding for us. I
‘m with you Milo is still no doubt a gay man (yeah he still likes dick) but now not only do we not want him neither does anyone else and he did that to himself. it’s like a black republican or a Jewish Nazi…self loathing. Ostracizing him or others like him is totally appropriate and deserved. He’s not part of our tribe.
Did anyone tell him about vaginas yet?
I’ve quite literally never heard of this “handsome” man. Glad he’s not a thing over here in Britain.
Milo is British. It’s hard to believe you’ve never heard of him.
Ah.. the death cries of his relevance are music to my ears.
I’ve always found that he’s interesting in the same way that driving by a car accident is interesting.
“I’m not gay anymore!”
“I can’t get laid since they figured out I’m a mentally-disabled piece of shit!”
Why is he being interviewed? Why is his interview recapped here? Especially as he loses his looks, irrelevance and obscurity are his due; just because a media wh*re is/was gay, doesn’t mean he needs to be given a platform. Please respect the reader – next time I won’t click on his thumbnail.
No loss for our community.
Regardless of political views or how someone acts, it’s impossible for the LGBTQ+ Community to ‘renounce’ or ‘revoke’ a person’s Sexual Preference or Identity. But if they choose to do it on their OWN, Good-Bye and Good Riddance b*tch. And once out of the Community, we certainly can go after them if they try to come back in, especially for saying the things this POS is saying.
His leaving is the by far the best Gift anyone has ever given us and it’s appreciated beyond measure.
Don’t feel sorry for his husband [former? houseboy now? WTF], when you lay with the dogs, you can’t claim you didn’t know you’d get flees.
I’ve seen this act before, just because someone says they are ex gay does not mean they are straight. Most are celibate or watch gay porn. Just read his reasoning for being gay and you’ll see how warped and crazy he is.
WELL HE STILL HAS A HUSBAND EVEN THO HE SAID HE WAS DEMOTED! I BET HES STILL TAKING THAT DICK. HE SAYS JHES EXGAY BUT YOU CAN’T BE EXGAY A;LL YOU CAN DO IS SUPPRESS YOUR FEELINGS!!
I’m struck by that he adopted this “whole” persona to own the liberals.
Imagine how hollow you must be for that to be your life’s work? That the reason why I don’t believe him. He could have applied his intelligence and limited talent to being an anti-gay Catholic firebrand. Why go through the trouble of performing gay and marrying a man?
He can be whoever he wants to be. But he will always a foul person, no matter his identity/orientation.
I guess, since he claims he was never really ‘gay’ in the first place….all those old fat and monied johns who paid him to…you know…do things to him…are just fanning themselves in a fit of vapors. Well, let’s see him do a girl (not a guuurrrl) and have a baby and be a right upstanding #superstraight guy–wow! there’s some mental gymnastics.
Good, we don’t need Fascists in our midst.
DENYING YOUR SEXUALITY DOESN’T MAKE YOU AN EX-GAY (OR WHATEVER YOU IDENTIFY AS). YOU ARE JUST SUPPRESSING IT. DUH!!!
Here’s some field instructions for hikers and hunters when one encounters a Milo Yiannopoulos:
1. Grab pillow.
2. Deny oxygen.
3. Listen for noises.
He’s a delusional narcissist, just like Trump. No wonder he became a Trumpanzee. They both think they’re “handsome, charismatic, and intelligent”, when nothing could be further from the truth. They are living breathing examples of the Dunning-Kruger Effect.
“[I] only leaned heavily into it in public because it drove liberals crazy to see a handsome, charismatic, intelligent gay man riotously celebrating conservative principles.”
No, no absolutely no one was thinking that.
People were thinking, though, what a jackass!
Ummmm First of all……. YAY! I couldn’t be any happier that troll has ex-communicated himself! Hes so disgusting in every possible way. There is nothing redeeming about him He has the personality of a dart! Hopefully we will be lucky enough that this truly will be the LAST we ever see or hear of him ever again #exgaybye!
First of all, gurl, you ain’t handsome. You just a greedy whore hoping that some slut will follow him. And now you say you ain’t gay. Win for our side. One less white trash in the pile. Who else can we take off the list. NEXT?
so who is he ?
All the anger has been said above. Richard Simmons looks straight beside Yani.
Maybe Milo is angling to take Rush’s place in right wing radio. He’s a big enough hot air wind bag to fill that “void”. And I won’t be listening. Didn’t listen to Rush either
Girl, please…. He’s an undesirable, self-loathing, confused imbecile. Good riddance to bad rubbish (until he’s caught in a gay dive bar or trying to pick up an overpaid and unworthy rent boy…).
Don’t give this guy anymore press of waste any copy space on him. A total fraud, grasping at anything that will get him attention. We as readers are allowing him a platform if we continue to print and read articles about this loser. Let’s move on to more relevant issues.
This influencer couldn’t be less influential.
What is really frightening is that the right will ignore how absurd he is and buy right into him. Partially because they aren’t real bright and also because they know their stupidity drives the left crazy! Me-low is perfect for that kind of role.
When you think he can’t be more stupid he is able to surprise you.
Anyway, straights can get him (but i doubt they want him)
“I’ve always thought of myself as a Jack Bauer sort of figure”
GET OFF THE DRUGS, BECKY.
Handsome, charismatic and intelligent?!?! If I were fed random names and was asked to list all the adjectives I could think of for each individual and I heard the name Milo Yappydopealis I could fill two pages or more of applicable words but you would not find one of those three! But seriously why breathe life into the undead? Hey straight folks you don’t really deserve this but he’s all yours now!
He is still tying to have his time in the sun.
It is sad how you Hypocrites are turning down. I thought the gay community was supposed to stand up for each other and not tear everyone down. Just wish even the person that wrote this article was more bias. Queerty needs to learn what real news is. Then how to there so called writers need to be more fair and balanced.
paul dorian lord fredine
while i agree this shouldn’t be considered news, as to being ‘fair and balanced’ concerning milo yippyyappy: 1) what do you think this is, fox news? and 2) gurl, please, just ignore him. he doesn’t deserve the attention.
Queerty Please DO NOT give this ass clown any more coverage ever. Like a fire without oxygen it soon will soon die out but ANY press he gets keeps him alive.
Rarely does someone’s ugliness actually make me feel nauseous.
By all the responses on here, he got exactly what he wanted…ATTENTION. Narcissist’s need attention, even negative
Now that he’s claiming to be straight, he and Marjorie Taylor Green would make a cute couple!
one more thing
This seems so desperate, its not a good look…….
Ms. Thang is the poster child why no one should do METH !!! His brain (what’s left of it) is mush and he’s a bottom of the barrel has been. He needs to slither back into the cave he crawled out of & stay there. FOREVER. His 15 minutes were up a long time ago. Be GONE LOSER !!!
His 15 minutes of fame is over….like Paris Hilton. Go away .nobody cares…
Milo may no longer be gay but his hair is… and his earrings.
