“I Was Pushed Into Identifying Myself As Something…I Was Not”

Philipp Tanzer, who performed in gay porn as Logan McCree, is planning a run for Scottish parliament in May’s Holyrood election.

Tanzer, whose previous porn catalogue includes films like Rear Deliveries and Hotter Than Hell 2, raised eyebrows a bit when he announced his plans to stand for the anti-LGBTQ Scottish Family Party (SFP).

Identifying now as ‘ex-gay,’ the 43-year-old says the SFP, which opposes any LGBTQ-inclusive education, “best represent my views on life and society.”

According to the SFP’s website, LGBTQ-inclusive education “mandates the indoctrination of schoolchildren into a radical ideology of sexuality.” The group also opposes ‘transgender ideology’ saying it confuses young people.

Tanzer has declared his candidacy for the Highlands and Islands after moving to Durness, Sutherland, in 2012.

In an interview with The Times, Tanzer says that since leaving adult entertainment he’s worked as a hairdresser, a massage therapist, and a fireman. He also shares that he’s currently in a relationship with a woman and considering “marriage and starting a family.”

The self-described ‘men’s rights activist’ also called out the porn industry saying, “In one year I lost five friends in the industry to suicide and drug overdoses. I have seen the harm porn addiction can do.”

He makes a point to say that porn is not just an issue for men.

“Both boys and girls consume pornography and both suffer under its impact,” said Tanzer.

Seeming to brush aside responsibility for his adult entertainment career, today he shares, “I was pushed into identifying myself as something at the age of 32 that I was not.”

Tanzer was profiled by the BBC last year in a report titled, “I am a Men’s Rights Activist.”

  1. All those tattoos are a signal that he suffers from very poor self esteem, and there is no such thing as an “ex-gay.” That’s just fooling yourself into thinking you’re not, but as Gaga sings, you were ‘born this way.” This reeks of homophobia and self-hatred.

  3. Always loved him as a porn star, as a performer. It is so sad that he hits now the LGBTQ+ community, with his “agenda”. I don’t think he says he is converted, ridiculous to say that someone told him to “push who he wasn’t”, I think he needs some good psychologist to work out problems he had and understand that love is love and it’s better to teach children about variety.

  6. Good for him. I respect even more now. It’s about time someone stand up to the ridiculous immoral agenda being pushed down kids’ throats these days in public schools

  7. this is laughable “pushed”??? he’s an opportunist. And he seems to feel that being gay and watching pornography are some how linked.

  8. Wow…he “was pushed into identifying himself as something…he was not”….I guess Raging Stallion Studios put a gun to his head and made him sign the contract and perform. He should receive an Academy Award for being able to take all those extra-large phalluses down this throat, balls-deep, without a struggle. He also seemed to have no problem achieving or maintaining a rock-hard erection when topping or bottoming.

    If you’re going to claim to be “ex-gay” that’s fine, but don’t go around trying to pass anti-LGBTQ legislation just to make yourself feel better. Please get therapy if you are that mixed-up in the head. Any woman who would go with you should be wary, lest she find you in bed with another man someday!

  9. I am a loud and proud gay man baby, and I think that you are stupid and you cannot take the gay away because me and all the other LGBTQ community were born this way!!!!

  10. Why even give him a platform? Its been known for years the harm as well as the financial gain the porn industry has done for so many actors. You make a choice to act in or view pornography.
