Derren Brown won’t turn straight men gay

Bristol graduate denies he plans to turn straight men gay by hypnotising them

Brown called the reports ‘total rubbish’

Illusionist Derren Brown has denied reports he plans to use his powers to turn straight men gay.

In an interview with Gay Times, the Bristol Uni graduate said: “I was thinking about this the other day — it would be interesting wouldn’t it? To take a gay guy and make him straight and a straight guy and make him gay.”

But now Brown, who studied German and Law 20 years ago, said his comments were misconstrued and he has no plans to use a “mind experiment” to change sexuality.

He tweeted: “It’s odd, seeing as in the original GT article I said changing sexuality WOULDN’T work. Still, it was a bit of intrigue over breakfast.”
