I was an Extra in four non-sexual party scenes of Michael Lucas’ La Dolce Vita, including a big-production fashion show number with celebrities Randy Jones (Village People), Michael Musto (Village Voice), Kevin Aviance, Amanda Lepore and others. It is always very sad and disheartening when Homophobia rears its ugly head and attacks a friend and a fellow Out producer. Being an Out producer and correspondent on a TV magazine news series, there were times when I was denied Press access for fear that being associated with something Gay, or the interpretation of their work by an openly Gay person, would tarnish their reputation. Gay people, like all other people have the right to be inspired by all culture, including classic movies, and to create and produce. I wish Michael good luck in fighting these Bigots and hope it doesn’t cost him too much.
