Milo Yiannopoulos: When I quit being gay ‘dogs stopped barking at me’

During a recent appearance on the TruNews TV program (host Rick Wiles was notably absent), right-wing provocateur and self-proclaimed “ex-gay” Milo Yiannopoulos shared a curious experience he says he had after he announced that he was no longer gay.

“When I made my announcement, the first thing that happened — which will make you laugh but it’s true — dogs stopped barking at me,”  Yiannopoulos said. “Everyone always has that friend that dogs always go nuts around … but this is now I think God reveals himself to us, this is just my experience of it — I was somebody who invariably without exception always used to make dogs go crazy.”

Yiannopoulos went on to tell a story about a friend’s “two little yappy dogs” who “would not stop” barking whenever he was near.

“The dogs don’t bark at me anymore,” he said. “It happened almost overnight. Now they seem to quite like me.”

In March, Yiannopoulos told the far-right outlet LifeSiteNews that he is now “ex-gay” and living a “chaste” life.

Yiannopoulos said that he was “never wholly at home in the gay lifestyle,” adding that he “only leaned heavily into it in public because it drove liberals crazy to see a handsome, charismatic, intelligent gay man riotously celebrating conservative principles.”
