Piers Morgan parties away the night at gay club despite his bigotry about non-binary people

Piers Morgan put aside his irrational dislike of non-binary and genderfluid people – as well as his three broken ribs – to party in a gay club last night until 3am.

The Good Morning Britain presenter, who will return to the ITV show on September 4, accompanied his co-host Susanna Reid to Freedom Bar in Soho.

BBC presenter Richard Bacon was also with the pair as they painted the town red.

Just past 3am, Reid tweeted a picture of her with Morgan, writing: “Reunited for our yearly big night out. Still going.”

And this afternoon, responding to a tweet from Freedom Bar calling on him to return, Morgan tweeted: “When or if our livers recover, definitely.”

Seems like a heavy night for the noted bigot – especially as he’s still recovering from a painful injury.

Morgan was left in agony earlier this week after a brutal fall left him with three broken ribs.

The 52-year-old wrote that the incident happened as a result of “falling flat on my a**e”.

Morgan sparked outrage when he called gender fluid people “absurd” last month.

Writing in the Mail on Sunday, he attacked Kori Doty, a non-binary parent who has been in the news over their battle to exclude new baby Searyl’s biological sex from their birth certificate.

“My number one pet hate at the moment is the absurd ‘gender fluid’ movement, driven by people who don’t wish to be defined as either male or female,” Morgan wrote.

When Doty was on GMB, Morgan asked them if they were “born male or female” and repeatedly badgered them about their genitals.

The parent, from British Columbia in Canada, smartly hit back by asking: “If that’s the direction this conversation is going to go, can I ask you if one of your testicles hangs lower?”

Morgan was flummoxed, which gave Doty the opportunity to tell him: “What someone’s genitals look like when they are born does not actually give us accurate information about their gender.”

The TV presenter has been angrily hitting out against gender-neutral and non-binary concepts and people for months.

He lashed out against Emma Watson after she picked up the gender-neutral Best Actor prize at the MTV TV and Movie Awards in May.

He went on a bizarre rant in which he suggested he would call himself “an Arsenal tragic gender,” then said he might wear a dress at the news that a London school was instituting gender-neutral uniforms.

And the chat show host continued his rampage by telling a trans non-binary couple that non-binary children were “a contagion” and that “two or three” trans kids died from suicide last year.

A 2014 study found that 48 percent of trans people under 26 in Britain had attempted suicide.

He also said that identifying as non-binary is “a massive new fad”.

Stonewall called him “bigoted and transphobic” after he made these comments, but this did not stop him.

Despite having taken part in the charity’s Rainbow Laces campaign in the past, he responded by childishly calling Stonewall “bigoted & Piers-phobic”.
