Ex Gay Porn Star Becomes Politician To Campaign Against Porn And Gay Rights

A former gay porn star has become a politician campaigning against porn and gay rights.


Philipp Tanzer from Germany used to be a gay porn star under the name Logan McCree and made quite a name for himself. He was crowned Mr. Leather in 2004 and took home a bunch of awards related to his work in the adult film industry, including Best Actor and Gay Performer of the Year. But in 2011, he moved to Scotland and took a girlfriend claiming he was no longer gay or bisexual.


Now he is launching a bid to become a politician with the far-right Scottish Family Party for the 2021 Scottish Parliamentary Elections. The party has policies like 'supporting families', 'reforming education' and 'valuing life'. Tanzer is a big supporter of the campaign, although they foster negative attitudes toward the life he formerly lived.


The Scottish Family Party has been working at ridding society of identity politics, and they 'oppose the LGBT Inclusive Education program that mandates the indoctrination of schoolchildren into a radical ideology of sexuality. They're also against the teaching of gender fluidity in schools because they reckon it leads to 'confusion and unhelpful experimentation'. Additionally, the party is also highly anti-porn.



"I had a negative view of the pornographic industry even before I joined it, but I needed the money," Mr Tanzer said, according to the Daily Mail.


"In one year I lost five friends in the industry to suicide and drug overdoses. I have seen the harm porn addiction can do. Not all my experiences with it have been negative though - I met some wonderful people.


"One of the main reasons to run for the Scottish Family Party has been my experience and helping people learn from it.


"Porn is not a men's problem. Both boys and girls consume pornography and both suffer under its impact.

"When I was younger I was not clear what path I would take. I was pushed into identifying myself as something at the age of 32 that I was not. The Scottish Family Party best represents my views on life and society."
