  • Dehenna Davison, 28, branded ‘sinful’ and ‘deluded’ by twisted online trolls 
  • The Conservative MP for Bishop Auckland had revealed she was bisexual 
  • But she outed several hateful messages that criticised her for coming out  










Conservative MP Dehenna Davison was branded ‘sinful’ and ‘deluded’ after twisted online trolls targeted her for coming out as bisexual.

The Bishop Auckland MP, 28, was told a relationship between two women was ‘a sin’ in one cruel post.

She was also told she wouldn’t be allowed in a church again and branded ‘deluded’ in other hate-filled messages. 

Davison, who is in the process of divorcing her husband John Fareham, revealed her sexuality on Sunday and admitted she did not consider it to be ‘a big deal’.

Ms Davison is understood to be the first female Conservative MP to come out publicly as bisexual.  

She told GB News: ‘If anyone were to explicitly ask me, I certainly wouldn’t try and hide it because I don’t think it’s anything to be ashamed of.

‘The reason I haven’t done a kind of, “By the way, guys”, is because I don’t want being bi to be considered a big deal. 

‘If I did a very public kind of coming-out parade, that would be me saying there’s something really unusual about this and trying to make a big deal of it when to me it’s not. It’s just part of who I am.’

After news broke on Sunday, Davison tweeted: ‘Really overwhelmed by the outpouring of love this evening.

‘Thank you so much for your support.’

But the Tory MP’s announcement wasn’t entirely met with praise – with a hateful section of online commenters accusing her of a ‘publicity stunt’.

One Twitter user wrote: ‘Publicity stunt.

‘Be more surprised if celebs and MPs came out as straight to be honest.’

Troll Chakib Miraoui added: ‘When admitting sexual duality becomes a virtue in itself.

‘Sex between two women is a great sin in the eyes of God.

‘I hope you’re not planning on ever going to church again.’

Davison also outed one person’s particularly cruel message which described her as ‘deluded’ and demanded she be ‘deselected’ at the next General Election.

The anonymous email read: ‘If you are so deluded to think bisexual, homosexual, trans etc is normal, you are not someone to represent us in Parliament.

‘I dread to think of all the hate crime, pro queer laws you would want.

‘You have been deselected.’

In response, Davison joked: ‘Someone clearly needs more rainbows in their life’. 

Fellow Tory MP Chris Clarkson, who is openly gay, quipped: ‘Wait until they meet the rest of the Parliamentary Party.’ 

Ms Davison became the first Conservative MP in the former Labour stronghold in more than 80 years when she won the seat from Helen Goodman in 2019. 

She won a majority of almost 8,000 as her party made unprecedented gains across the North East.

Following the General Election, she split from Hull councillor John Fareham – who she married in 2018.
