Very few details to report here, other than despicable alt-right firebrand Milo Yiannopolous tied the knot with his long-term boyfriend – identified only as John– in Hawaii over the weekend.
Instagram pictures posted by Yiannopolous show the couple reciting their vows under a tree and pouring champagne into a tower of glasses. In neither pic can you see John’s face, with his back to the photographer in one and his face obscured in the other.
“It’s official,” Yiannopolous captioned one picture, after the ceremony at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai on Saturday.
Is it even real? Is it a stunt? Is “John”‘s face hidden because he doesn’t want the world to know he was marrying a contemptible scoundrel? OUT YOURSELF, “JOHN”!
Among Milo’s targets has been the gay rights movement. “Gay Rights Have Made Us Dumber,” declared Yiannopolous in a 2015 article, where he wrote that gays should “get back in the closet.”
In a recent interview, however, he indicated that his opposition to the gay rights may be changing. He told Australian network Sky News’s Bolt Report in September that he thought churches shouldn’t be obligated to perform same-sex marriages, but believed that “having recently fallen in love myself, I don’t think there is a strong enough case against gay marriage in a civil sense.”
Though reticent about revealing the identity of his boyfriend, Yiannopolous previously claimed that the man is a Muslim and they’ve been in a relationship for 10 years.
In a February appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher February, Yiannopolous criticized the media for describing the alt-right as an “antisemitic, white supremacist, hateful, bigoted, racist, homophobic” movement, because he was a “gay Jew [with] a black boyfriend.”
