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.
The 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.
Király resigned from Jobbik after some of those photos hit the web, courtesy of the Hungarian-language blog Képviselő Funky. More photos surfaced here. Jobbik organized large-scale violent protests against Budapest Pride events in 2007 and 2008, which resulted in clashes with riot police.
