DESCRIPTION/STATEMENT: My gay sexuality has always been about loss to me—self-identifying as gay in the 80s, always scared, always alone–never finding the right one—like this man in the desert. Objectified gay porn star bodies were my sex education and at times virtual boyfriends. Teachers teaching me eroticism, sensuality, and sexuality. Not real people, just objectified bodies; mostly working bodies. Neither of us was safe from AIDS, violence, or shame. I honor my gay porn teachers who stood by me in my darkest hours.
