In the continuation of the trial of Stephen Port, a gay man who’s accused of killing four men he met through Grindr, a young transgender man testified against Port in court, saying that he too was raped while he was unconscious.
Port, 41, from Barking, east London, is on trial for allegedly spiking the drinks of his victims with fatal doses of date rape drug GHB before having sex with them while they were unconscious in his home.
He was arrested last October following the discovery of the bodies of four men between June 2014 and September 2015.
One of the alleged rape victims is a 22-year-old transgender man he met through Facebook.
The man told the court that he first met Port through Facebook, and he went to stay at Port’s flat for a week because he wanted to get back at his boyfriend for being unfaithful, according to BBC.
The men had had consensual sex, but one evening when the victim passed out from drinking, Port had allegedly had sex with him while he was unconscious.
Port had even filmed the process and showed him the video the morning after.
‘Did you come to learn whether he had done anything else?’ asked prosecutor Jonathan Rees QC.
The man replied: ‘He video recorded it using his phone. I just thought he was disgusting and vile. He thought it was fine. He thought it was funny.’
The prosecutor asked the man if he agreed Port could have sex with him while he was unconscious, and he replied he had not.
The victim told the jurors: ‘I felt angry because you don’t carry on having sex with someone when they pass out. I said, “you’re disgusting.”‘
Port has pleaded not guilty to 29 offences against a total of 12 men, including four murders, seven rapes, four sex assaults and administering a substance with intent, according to Evening Standard.
