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. 


Royal Winnipeg Ballet School Expels Gay Student For Doing Adult Films

Jeppe Hansen

22-year-old dancer Jeppe Hansen was accepted to the prestigious Royal Winnipeg Ballet School and received a scholarship for their professional division in September 2012. Then officials discovered that in his short time attending the school Jeppe chose to act in porn. Officials decided was no longer welcome in the school, reports CBC.

Jeppe decided to do porn after being frustrated by what he viewed as the constraints of ballet. Porn was a side project that would allow him to be the artist he wants to be, while ballet "is restrictive. Everyone tells you what you have to do, how to look, what to weigh, how to perform [and] be the artist you are."

Emmy-award-winning producer Jake Jaxson, the owner of the site that Jeppe performed for, shares a similar sentiment in regards to the artistic value of porn and is trying to blur the lines between mainstream and adult entertainment. He wants to make films that have storylines as well as sex, and points out that the extreme violence present in many films is not regarded as being outside of the mainstream. This echoes James Franco in Interior. Leather Bar. when he stated "Sex should be a storytelling tool, but we’re so f**king scared of it," and pointed out how the common and natural acts of sex - gay sex in particular - are subjected to much higher levels of censorship than extreme violence.

Though a victim of the sex-phobic culture that insists on the dichotomoy that "porn is bad" but consumes it en masse, slut-shaming the actors who dare perform in it all the while, Jeppe insists that his dancing career is not over. For now, he is taking a break until he can find a place where he can fit in.

'Embarrassed' NY Prosecutor Mark Suben Admits Porn Past: VIDEO

Suden

Just a few weeks ago, prior to his reelection, Mark Suben, district attorney of Cortland County in New York, denied rumors that he appeared in 70s-era porn. Yesterday, he changed that story, admitting that, yes, as a struggling actor he had a few turns in skin flicks.

"Recently materials have been circulated alleging that I was involved in the adult film industry about 40 years ago in New York. Those allegations are true," Suben, first elected Cortland County DA in 2008, said during a press conference yesterday. "I was an actor in adult films for a short period in the early 70s. I was also an actor in other venues including off Broadway, soap operas and commercial advertisements."

He went on:

A few weeks ago, when asked, I denied this to members of the press. I regret that and I apologize for it. I was shocked and embarrassed to be confronted with this so many years later. I was embarrassed for my family and friends who have stood by me. I also denied my actions to my family, my friends and my staff.

Suben described his work in those films, including one called The Lecher, and his subsequent lies as "bad judgement."

AFTER THE JUMP, the YouTube video made by an anonymous tipster who exposed Suben's celluloid past.

Adult Film Star Explains How And Why He Was In 'Innocence Of Muslims'

TimdaxWatching Innocence of Muslims, the bigoted, insensitive video that sparked anti-American protests in Libya, Egypt and Yemen, some viewers recognized an instantly recognizable actor named Tim Dax from his work in gay adult films.

This had many wondering why Dax would involve himself in such an obviously hateful project. The short answer: the film's directors kept the actors in the dark about the movie's actual message. The longer answer, sent in an email to Joe.My.God, is here, unedited:

i can tell you i auditioned for a movie called Desert Storm that was about Ancient Warriors. My character was called Sampson on the paper with a few lines I got each day upon arriving on set. We never saw a full script or any lines after the day we shot them. Many questions were asked regarding absurdity of lines and situations.

Sam the producer who I believed to be, but not certain as Egyptian. His reply would always to work with what we were given as he wrote the script. The clip that I saw part of today for the first time is questionable as to being my voice. The voice over work is dubious at best. a week and a half of work, 75 bucks a day & lunch. ; ) Can't tell you anymore than that other than I'm am very much NOT anti muslim.

one world one love. Tim.

It makes sense that the directors would keep the script to themselves. Wouldn't want anyone spoiling their intentionally incendiary plans!
