The president of the Philippines has said that he stopped being gay thanks to the help of beautiful women.

Rodrigo Duterte said that he cured himself by getting married, although that marriage ended.

Duterte is notorious for his foul-mouthed speeches that include insults, threats to perceived enemies and references to rape that he casts as jokes.

The latest unfiltered comments came during an appearance before the Filipino community in Tokyo last week.

During his speech Duterte appeared to say that one of his high-profile critics, Senator Antonio Trillanes, was gay.

He said: Trillanes and I are similar. But I cured myself.

The president explained that he became a man again after meeting his now ex-wife.

He said: So beautiful women cured me.

Duterte has a wavering record when it comes to gay rights. During his campaign for president in 2016 he voiced support for same sex marriage, but later backtracked.



He has also used homosexuality as an insult, including against Philip Goldberg, then US ambassador to Manila.

Bahaghari, a gay and transgender advocacy group, said Dutertes comments were dangerous and retrograde.

They said: It is symptomatic of an even graver illness: one of ignorance, prejudice and hate.
