A controversial far-right political commentator who earlier this year distributed flyers in the UK claiming that “Allah is a Gay God” and “Allah is trans” is heading to Australia in July for a speaking tour.
Lauren Southern previously worked for Rebel Media, the same media outlet Mark Latham worked with, until she left last year to become a self-professed “independent journalist”, according to the Herald Sun.
And in March this year, she was banned from entering the UK after distributing flyers claiming that Allah is a gay and trans God, before she defended herself by claiming it was part of a social experiment.
On Twitter, she said she was trying to prove Islam to be a homophobic religion by provoking British Muslims.
Southern will be joined by Stefan Molyneux for the speaking tour, a self-published author with roughly 780,000 YouTube subscribers who regularly weighs in on Islam, feminism, and political correctness.
“Australia is a fascinating situation for both of us, because it really seems that you guys are at a crossroad,” Southern said in announcing the tour.
“Do you want to retain your culture? Or, will the boats keep coming?”
Fellow alt-right commentator Milo Yiannopoulos toured in Australia last year, where police were forced to intervene after protestors clashed with supporters outside of his Melbourne event.
