Everyone Is Pissed At OUT Magazine For Profiling Bigot Milo Yiannopoulos

by Graham Gremore September 22, 2016


So Out Magazine kinda sorta stepped in it this week when they published a profile on Milo Yiannopoulos, the racist, Islamophobic, transphobic Donald Trump surrogate and alt-right activist who managed to get himself permanently banned from Twitter earlier this year for his bigotry. And, as expected, people aren’t happy about it.

The profile, which was published online yesterday, included an editor’s note explaining the magazine’s decision to feature controversial Yiannopoulos:

It should not need saying that the views expressed by the subject of this piece in no way represent the opinions of this magazine, but in this era of social media tribalism, the mere act of covering a contentious person can be misinterpreted as an endorsement. If LGBTQ media takes its responsibilities seriously we can’t shy away from covering queer people who are at the center of this highly polarized election year, and we ask you to assess Milos Yiannopoulos, the focus of this profile, on his own words without mistaking them for ours.

Some claimed the editor’s note was added after the blowback started; however, it was always there. Still, that hasn’t stopped people from voicing their outrage with the publication.

Then there are the folks on Twitter:


As a result of the backlash, Out’s editor-at-large and author of the interview, Chadwick Moore, has flipped his Twitter profile to private. Meanwhile, Yiannopoulos issued the following response on his official Facebook page:

What do you think? Was Out wrong to profile this gay supervillain? Or are people overreacting? Share your thoughts in the comments section below…

Racism Is A Major Problem In The Gay Community, And This Election Proves It

by Dan Tracer October 27, 2016

Racism is a problem in the gay community and you need look no further than the current presidential campaign, argues Gabe Gonzalez in a new video from Mic. “Nothing more clearly illustrates that racism is alive and well in the gay community than this election cycle,” Gonzalez says. “Don’t believe me? Ask the gays.
