The Strange, Strange Story of the Gay Fascists
Johann Hari, Columnist for the London Independent explores the history of gay men who supported fascism.
The news that Jorg Haider - the Austrian fascist leader - spent his final few hours in a gay bar with a hot blond has shocked some people. It hasn't shocked me. This is a taboo topic for a gay left-wing man like me to touch, but there has always been a weird, disproportionate overlap between homosexuality and fascism. Take a deep breath; here goes.Editor's Note: This article came to my attention by someone posting as Euro Homofascism. I read the article and then responded as follows: Your sensationalist attempt to stir the pot is laughable. Some gay men happen to support fascism. In this country they call themselves Log Cabin Republicans and GOProud.

It is an interesting article but definitely sensationalist and card-stacking. For all of the gay fascists mentioned one could also find lots of examples on the left, including prominent figures of the Bolshevik Revolution.
It is definitely Euro centered. The difference between there and the USA is that fascism in Europe is based primarily on authoritarianism, nationalism and racism while the social conservative Republican party in the US is based on cynical greed and religious dogma. Also, how can an article about gay fascism omit mention of Mishima?

Cheap sensationalism at its best. To suggest that gays are at the forefront of all fascist movements, including the Nazis, is highly offensive. I suggest his next article to be about Republicans at the forefront of climate change and civil rights; non-fiction seems to be his forte.
