Anti-gay speaker moonlights as author of violent porn novels

Prominent anti-gay activist and conservative commentator Robert Oscar Lopez has self-published his second book of fictional gay erotica, filled with deeply disturbing depictions of gay sex and rape.

Lopez has become a popular fixture in conservative intellectual circles over the past few years. As a self-identified bisexual whose mother was in a same-sex relationship during his childhood, his extreme brand of homophobic commentary has made him a unique and useful spokesperson for some of the America’s most notorious anti-gay groups and publications. He even testified in opposition to Minnesota’s marriage equality law.

In March of 2013, however, Lopez began self-publishing a series of gay fiction novels titled “Mean Gays.” According to Lopez, the series is meant to encourage gay people to examine their interactions and stop being mean to each other. He even developed a website, Twitter handle, and UStream account to promote the series.

The first book in the series, Johnson Park, is a story about “five gay boys” in New York caught in a ridiculous web of sexual drama and violence. The novel depicted gay men as lonely, depressed, deceptive, and, of course, pedophilic.
