Press Release Roundup: Performer-mogul Brent Corrigan stars in a new safer-sex public service announcement produced by the Washington D.C.-based advocacy group DC FUK!T. “Although when Mr. Corrigan first entered the adult industry as a teen, he performed in bareback porn films, he has long since become an advocate for safer sex and has very publicly apologized for his past appearances in films depicting high-risk and unsafe sexual practices,” a DC FUK!T spokesperson said. The group cites “his ability to learn from his professional mistakes years ago and change his behavior” as a factor that lends added credence and emphasis to his advocacy, particularly “at a time when both bareback porn and HIV are unfortunately making a comeback,” they note. Constant Readers will recall that last autumn megastar Matthew Rush shot a hardcore how-to PSA for DC FUK!T on proper condom usage (see the link below). The gay-gossip blogosphere has picked up the story of Mr. Corrigan’s PSA, however, including the Advocate website and popular gay blog Joe.My.God, whose post is melodramatically titled “A Barebacker Repents” and has drawn more than 100 comments ranging from the by-now-familiar mix of admiration, dismissiveness and spit-flecked outrage. The condemnation stems not only from Mr. Corrigan’s early condomless sexpics but also his controversial past as an underage performer. A stubborn contingent of gay men simply refuse to accept his public atonement. Two additional PSAs were filmed, including one with Mr. Rush, and will be released this summer.
