I believe another classic "homo nativist" was Joerg Haider of Austria, leader of the Freedom Party. (He died in a car crash in 2008.)

That said, this subgroup of gay right-wingers is not entirely without scandal. A Hungarian MEP from Orban's Fidesz party was arrested after escaping a 25-man orgy in a private apartment, with a rucksack full of narcotics. https://www.politico.eu/article/police-arrests-20-people-including-eu-officials-at-lockdown-party-in-brussels/

But it's strange times we live in that the main story was the breaking of lockdown rules and not, you know, being at a chemsex party.

This article is misconceived if the author thinks of the Conservative Party as having anconnection with "the Right". Such a group does not exist in the UK and the Tory party has been at one with left of centre globalisation since before Cameron-Clegg abandoned all pretence at it being a freedom loving small state party.
