Practically ancient video footage of a Karen Dior Tribute from 2004 is being distributed by TriangleDream.com Video.
The DVD includes porn pup Kevin Kramer flagging, Lana Luster vamping, and singing by Richard Halpern, Billy Masters, Sharon Kane, the Fabulous Phyllis and Chi Chi LaRue. The event occurred at Micky’s Bar in West Hollywood, Calif., and plenty of fans and friends of the late diva—often known as the Rev. Geoffrey Karen Dior—appear (including me), saying their farewells to the grande dame of gay porn.
The video is rather messy (Jackie Beat and a few other participants obviously didn’t want to be shown). The sound is terrible, too—but it was in real life. However, the product is undeniably a snippet of gay porn history.
TriangleDream.com offers photos and on-demand video of naked guys engaging in fetishes like nude massages, tickling and bare feet.
My friend Lucas Kazan told me that a lot has changed in the dozen years since he filmed Journey to Italy in his home country. Italy now enjoys out and proud gay elected representatives, and Rome hosted a Euro Gay Pride celebration in the shadow of the Vatican.
“We’ve made some significant steps forward since 1997,” Kazan said.
This month, mainstream filmmaker Alberto D’Onofrio plans to film a half-hour documentary for CultTV/Sky. Among the segments to be incorporated: a visit to Kazan’s set in southern Italy.
In addition, on Oct. 10 Kazan plans a live show with fashion model and actor Francesco Arca in a trendy Milan disco. Kazan’s exclusive models Guiseppe Pardi, Matthias Vannelli, Daniele Montana and Ettore Tosi all will perform. Look for those guys in the new Kazan title Daniel and his Buddies, directed by Tosi, who is a hot model himself.
A few more quickies:
- What a way to have a birthday! Owen Hawk got a blowjob for his birthday, and the clip is available for free at DarkAlley.com. Hawk enjoyed a rip-roaring 30th birthday bash Oct. 4 during a kinky underwear party in the basement of Manhattan’s SpeakEasy.
- Tipo Sesso’s 70-percent-off sale ends with October. Nineteen of the studio’s top titles have been slashed dramatically. Bareback Ranch, Barebone Raw Adventures and the Fuck Fixation series are included.
- TitanMen is preparing to release Folsom Maneuvers Oct. 13. Some of the incredible scenes include J.R. Matthews on all fours for Dean Flynn, and Will Parker taking a piss and then getting a mouthful of piss from Gio Forte. The title will be available as an expanded director’s cut on standard DVD and Blu-ray Disc.
- Hot Desert Knights found a bunch of bottoms who are Absolutely Fucked! The title says it all. Muscle studs including Ray Dalton and Patrick Ives bend over for this one.

- Director Steve Cruz is very cute in the behind-the-scenes promos for Mustang’s Green Door. Sexy star Nash Lawler narrates while Cruz introduces his co-director and support staff, explains the difficulty of lighting and more. Lawler talks about the different uniforms featured in the flick and how the definition of male attractiveness has changed since the 1940s. Once you pass the portal, you’ll never return. Zak Spears stars in the movie itself, and the behind-the-scenes clips show a lot of interesting Falcon Studios secrets.
- Tom of Finland’s erotica is hanging right now at the Museum of Modern Art and at the Italian Venice Biennale. In this case, one might say the artwork is both hung and hanged.
