Milo Yiannopoulos's Book Party Moved After Being Booked as Gay Pride Event

The venue's owner discovered that the event was not a Pride celebration but rather a release of Dangerous, the alt-right provocateur's self-published book.

Milo Yiannopoulos has alienated any friends he might have had -- it by all accounts has not been his day, his month, or even his year.

The scheduled Saturday launch party for the former Breitbart editor and gay alt-right troll's new book, Dangerous, had to be relocated after the owner of the Jue Lan Club in New York City discovered the nature of the event.

Club owner Stratis Morfogen felt hosting Yiannopoulos would alienate his customers in the heavily LGBT Chelsea neighborhood. "I had no idea this was booked. It was told to us it was a gay pride event," the restaurateur told Page Six.

Although the event was not part of NYC Pride, it involved one particularly proud gay. "Angry, bitter leftists have seized control over the Pride celebration and made it a political statement against President Trump," said Yiannopoulos. "I am throwing a party for the outcasts, the rebels, and the gay conservatives who speak, think, and live free of liberal demands."

Yiannopoulos's publicist didn't sing the same unapologetic tune. He kept the party's new location a secret, telling Page Six, "I don't want to tell anyone. In New York there is no room for other opinions."

Yiannopoulos, who is known for transphobic rhetoric and inciting his fans to make racist statements, was disinvited from the Conservative Political Action Conference this year after videos surfaced of him defending sex between men and underage boys, and then Simon & Schuster canceled his book deal. Dangerous is now being self-published and already has 65,000 preorders. It's predicted that upon release, it will top best-seller lists.
