The Sun has outed a gay nurse as a former British porn star.

Publicly outing the 23-year-old, recently qualified nurse at a top hospital, they have posted pictures from his alleged 23 films, his Instagram, and sent a photographer to snap shots of him taking out his bins.

We will not be linking to The Sun in order to protect his privacy. It is unknown how the tabloid considers this intrusion of privacy in the public interest.

The tabloid claims the adult films were released as he came to the end of a nursing degree in February last year.

They report how he acted in in the films to get the cash to pay for his education. Nursing degrees start at £9,250 ($11.5k, €10k) a year as well as requiring you to volunteer out of study hours.

The 23-year-old recently got a job in the hematology department.

An anonymous source at the hospital in Leeds told the newspaper: ‘No one at the hospital knew of his background. He’s only just got the job.’

They continue: ‘He’s told bosses it’s behind him and he is no longer a performer.

‘He insists it has no bearing on what he does as a nurse.’

According to The Sun, the nurse denied he was the actor. However, they report he ‘confessed to hospital bosses’. The hospital itself declined to comment.

On the tabloid’s own website, every comment at the time of publishing is supportive of the nurse.

‘The Sun up to its own homophobic tricks again!’ one says. What on earth has what this man did in his teens go to do with his ability to nurse ill people? The Sun really is utterly vile.

‘How do the people who wrote this article live with themselves?’

Another says: ‘And what is he doing now ? Helping people for little pay and little thanks …and he paid his own education leave the poor fella alone …’

And another said: ‘Who cares, he’s qualified for the job. He doesn’t deserve to be publicly shamed and outed. This attempt to ruin a young person’s life and livelihood has really sickened me. Shame on this newspaper.’
