The photographer behind Twinks for Trump, a photography series dedicated to homosexuals who support Donald Trump, was reportedly fired from his job after Milo Yiannopoulos praised him as part of a column on “How Donald Trump Made It Cool To Be Gay Again.”

Lucian Wintrich, a photographer, artist, and Trump supporter from New York who was working for advertising and marketing firm Anomaly, told Breitbart that just five hours after the article had been released, he was told that he would have to “sever ties with the company immediately,” with his company email deactivated within hours of his dismissal.

Wintrich could not comment further on the issue, as he is in the process of a legal challenge.

Wintrich’s work was heavily featured at the Gays For Trump party at the Republican National Convention in July, which was attended by the likes of Islam critics Pamela Geller and Geert Wilders, leader of the Dutch Party For Freedom.

It is not the first time Wintrich has faced difficulties for being the “wrong kind of gay.” He has been banned from Facebook on two separate occasions for using the word “fag” in one of his posts and sharing pro-Trump material, although his account was reinstated soon after Breitbart Tech reported on the incident.

Anomaly, the company Wintrich was fired from, did not respond to Breitbart’s request for comment.
