‘Out’ Magazine Profiles Milo, Triggers Its Delicate Gay Readers | Ben Kew – Breitbart

A gay magazine is facing backlash from some of its readers for running a feature on Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos for what they perceive as the magazine interviewing ‘the wrong kind of gay,’ despite providing a trigger warning for readers on the “contentious” views that the article contains.

“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.”

everyone screams “PUT QUEERS IN QUEER MAGAZINES!”@outmagazine puts a white, xenophobic, racist, misogynist gay in their magazine
