Short Takes: Brent Corrigan Films Safer-Sex PSA…and More

Porn superstar Brent Corrigan is riding the safer-sex train by filming a series of public-service announcements for DC FUK!T. The Washington, D.C. advocacy group notes that Corrigan’s “ability to learn from his professional mistakes years ago and change his behavior” were reasons that he is the right porn star at the right time to spread the word. They are obviously referring to some not-so-safe activities that Corrigan took part in early in his controversial career. “Brent 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,” DC FUK!T founder Terry Gerace says. The first PSA shows Corrigan demonstrating how to use a condom. Two other videos dealing with sexual health have been filmed and will be released this summer. Veteran porn stars Matthew Rush and Will Clark have also done spots for the group.

Well, now we know where they will be handed out. AVN Media Network has secured San Francisco’s historic Castro Theatre for the 12th edition of the show, which has taken place there twice before (once famously with Kathy Griffin as host). The awards gala will be part of four days of events in conjunction with the Folsom Street Fair. Web categories are included in this year’s GAYVN lineup, as well as a new special Personality of the Year award.…Just because a company produces gay porn doesn’t mean that’s all it can do. British production company Eurocreme has gone and signed a boy band creatively named Boy Banned. The pop group features four European model types. The cuties have already recorded a single titled “One World” (available soon on iTunes) and will be making their debut at Berlin Pride on June 19. Gee, you think they’re being marketed to a gay audience or something?! “Boy Banned has enormous talent and is a fantastic edition to our portfolio,” says Eurocreme founder Max Lincoln, who has also directed films such as this and this. “I was really impressed with their songs and boundless energy.” For more information, visit
