Milo Yiannopoulos working as unpaid intern for viciously anti-LGBTQ+ Marjorie Taylor Greene
Milo Yiannopoulos has come out of “retirement” – bagging a, well, unpaid internship in congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene’s office.
The former senior editor at Breitbart News and self-described “Trump-sexual” announced his unpaid job on Telegram, sharing a photo of his intern congressional badge.
“I’ve finally been persuaded out of retirement,” he wrote Monday (6 June). “But my skills are a bit rusty, so the best role I could land was an unpaid internship with a friend. Pray for me!”
Said “friend” is none other than QAnon follower and Georgia representative Greene, who praised Yiannopoulos’s “ex-gay” status.
“So I have an intern that was raped by a priest as a young teen, was gay, has offended everyone at some point, turned his life back to Jesus and Church, and changed his life,” Greene told Newsweek. “Great story!”
“Mummy always said I’d end up in government!” Yiannopoulos added.
Marjorie Taylor Greene uses Milo Yiannopoulos’s internship to mock trans rights
Yiannopoulos and Greene have been spotted together on several occasions since April, with Yiannopoulos sharing content and photographs of himself with Greene on his Telegram.
And because it’s Greene she, of course, took a moment while confirming Yiannopoulos’ internship to deal a cheap blow to congresswoman Marie Newman.
“If you don’t want to write that, the press can go across the hall and interview congresswoman Marie Newman on how to turn your son into a woman,” she added in her statement.
The Illinois representative’s office in Washington DC is opposite Greene’s. The lawmakers have been sparring since their election over their opposing views on trans rights.
Newman, who has a trans daughter, placed a trans Pride flag outside her office. Greene hit back with a sign saying there are “two genders, male and female”.
Yiannopoulos, who among others has rallied against trans people, gay people, women, Muslims and immigrants, became an outcast over his 2016 comments supporting relationships between “younger boys” and older men.

“I think particularly in the gay world, and outside the Catholic Church – if that’s where some of you want to go with this – I think in the gay world some of the most important, enriching and incredibly life-affirming, important shaping relationships very often between younger boys and older men,” he said on a podcast in 2016.
“They can be hugely positive experiences.”
His fall from grace was swift. Conservative conference CPAC dropped him as a speaker, he lost his book deal, Twitter and Facebook banned him and Australia barred him from entering the country. It even emerged that he didn’t write many of the stories under his byline on Breitbart – a team of ghostwriters reportedly did.
Since then, Yiannopoulos has called himself an “ex-gay” and had “demoted” his husband to “housemate”.
He said in 2021 he was building a conversion therapy camp in Florida which would offer the use of electroshock treatment to help people “pray the gay away”.
Dogs no longer bark at Yiannopoulos, he said in 2021, which he says is a sign from God that he was cured of homosexuality. Yes, really.
