Gay Porn Company Uses Proceeds To Help LGBT People In Need

R-DEEP-IN-THE-DARK-large570
Torn between your passion for social activism and your love of gay erotica? Thanks to Boys Town Studios, the new branch of Monarchy Distribution that's launching this upcoming fall, you'll apparently get to kill two birds with one...um...bone. 

"100 percent of the profits from all these movies, including DVD sales, video-on-demand, cable and broadcast will be donated to our newly-created non-profit," said Mike Kulich, owner of Monarchy Distribution, in a statement to HuffPost Gay Voices. 

"Anyone will be able to write Boys Town Studios and tell their stories about how bigotry and homophobia has affected their lives, and we will step into help those victims as much as we can."

The studio's first film, Deep In The Dark, will be released this October, and will specifically target its funds towards LGBT aid and advocacy in Russia. While Boys Town doesn't claim to be making any sort of statement by using gay porn to generate funds for charity, the studio is bound to raise at least a few eyebrows when it comes time to donate its proceeds. Nevertheless, since anti-gay activists have previously used gay porn to scare up support for their cause, it is nice to see the scales tipping back in the other direction. 

Is Boys Town on to something? Is it a good idea to use gay porn to generate proceeds for charity? Sound off in the comments section below.

  1. There is no reason why the gay community shouldn't turn the income from a work product we all buy and enjoy into helping other gay people with the challenges of life - downpayment on a home, getting an airline ticket to get out of Russia, dental and medical expenses, education - wow, a thousand and one needs devoted entirely to the gay community. I'm all for it! I'll buy all my porn from these guys if they stick to their word.

  2. If Russian women knew more about gay porn, they'd change their minds about gay rights.

  3. I think making money off of simulated non-reality is a good idea. HuffGay staff should do a porn. They could set it in a Russian prison.

  4. That's great!!! Hopefully their gay porn sex scenes are not Bareback scenes. Condom sex is safer sex and should be encouraged by all who care about their gay brothers.

  5. Does anyone know whether "our newly-created non-profit" has a name, and what it actually does? Sorry for being cynical, but this sounds like a tax write-off scheme. Generally if you start a charity to support a cause, you advertise in a way that tells people about the cause and how they can help it, rather than just about the fact that you are supporting it. It sounds to me like they just set up a 501(c) as a tax shelter and are hoping it'll double as a marketing ploy. Maybe I'm being too cynical, but I think if they want to appeal to socially-conscious porn consumers, they at least need to disclose some more information about where the money's going.
