The LaBarbera of Budapest Outed at Toronto Pride

Peter LaBarbera earned his nickname “Porno Pete” for for attending gay and straight leather parties sometimes disguised in leather himself — and for owning a pile of gay porn, all in the name of “research.” A right-wing anti-gay Hungarian politician was photographed conducting similar “research”:

András Király, a member of  Jobbik, the religiously-based political party defining itself as the “movement for a better Hungary,” took some time in 2008 to visit Toronto during the city’s Pride Week. The young politician, whose platform is set firmly against gay rights, gypsies, and immigrants, also decided to document his stay with a digital camera.

András Király at the 2008 Toronto PrideThe photos, as if we should all be surprised, have now surfaced in multiple, French-language and Hungarian media outlets this week. Each documents a smiling (and I mean smiling) Király, posing flirtatiously with several hot, Torontonian, gay men, as well as a topless transgender woman. Additional photos also show him smoking pot, and (apparently) inhaling it second-hand from the mouth of another guy.

Jobbik organized large-scale violent protests against Budapest Pride events in 2007 and 2008, which resulted in clashes with riot police.

Just because they like gay porn and hang around gay guys at gay pride festivals doesn’t make them gay.

Ask anyone. Ask me!

*sigh* well at least we aren’t the only country that has this problem. Also, this is the first one I’ve seen who is actually not bad looking.

Didn’t he learn in Sunday school class: be sure your sins will find you out?

Too ridiculous to be funny!

An anti-gay activist/politician is found out to be, if not gay certainly not as anti-gay as he claimed. In other shocking news, the sun rose in the East.

John and CPT_Doom = dumb. András Király learned all that anti-gay bigotry from heterosexuals. It was apart of his heterosexual cover. Blame heterosexuals who raise gay kids to hate themselves and in turn force them to pretend to be heterosexual and subscribe to anti-gay bigotry.

András Király obviously is gay. Only a gay person would resign so quickly over pictures as harmless as these.

Research? LOL. I wonder if the research took him to any sex clubs or bathhouses? But he ~is~ actually pretty cute. I’ll forgive him if he repents of his sins. :-P

The most homophobic people I’ve ever met, were all closeted or pseudo-closeted homosexuals and bisexuals, especially bisexuals.
Hate can never outgrow self-hate, the lack of a healthy self-criticism and self-awareness.
I live mainly in Budapest, and I know that many knew about him, before being outed and nobody outed him, although he was a spokesman for this horrible so called “party” which is actually a pseudo-militant fascist group.
It was the same with Joerg Heider, who used to be the leader of the most fascist party in Austria. There were so many gays who knew about him for years, and no one outed him. How many religious leaders and political leaders are outed as homosexuals or bisexuals, known for their rhetoric full of hate?
Just imagine that this is only the peak of the ice mountain.
And it is our fault. We think silly things like: ” he is so cute, he can’t be all that bad” and ” well he is nice to me”.
We behave like prostitutes for covering for them.
Sometimes I think that we deserve all the pain, for not doing enough.

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers. This story is a stark reminder that there are severe and damaging consequences when therapists try to ensure that boys will be boys.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.
