Gay adult studio Noir Male responds to allegations of “not catering” to the black community
Last week gay adult performer Jace Zhu stated that he had stopped working for the studio Noir Male (tagline: “Showcases Black Men As They Deserve To Be Seen) because he felt he was “being used to sell a product that doesn’t cater to our community.” A popular gay adult gossip blog followed up on Zhu’s comment by alleging that the studio has a 37-to-30 black-to-white performer ratio, a count that the studio says is inaccurate.
We reached out to Noir Male for comment and they’ve refuted several of the Zhu’s and the gossip blog’s assertions.
In an official statement give to Queerty, Noir Male wrote:
“We were slightly shocked by Jacen’s comments, but respect his personal and professional choices, and wish him the best. We have loved working with him and even tried to get him involved in the creative process when he voiced concerns in the past as to representation; however there was no continued follow through on his end. We always ask performers to come to us with any ideas or concerns; we want this to be a studio that performers are proud of and represent MOC (men of color) in a positive light.”
See All the Times Spider-Man's Tom Holland Gave Away Avengers Secrets
Tom Holland may be in the middle of all The Avengers action but the star forced directors Joe and Anthony Russo to keep him out of the loop after a series of spoilers on Holland’s part.
Holland, 22, has a history of giving away Marvel’s secrets when it comes to several of the studio’s superhero films, albeit accidentally.
He famously revealed there would be two Spider-Man: Homecoming sequels long before the studio had announced the franchise offerings.
Holland was also the first one to share the title of the upcoming film Spider-Man: Far From Home, showing a photo of the logo on his Instagram account months after Infinity War dropped.
This History of Gay Bars Is Also a Tale of LGBTQ Liberation
The new documentary San Diego's Gay Bar History surveys some of the 135 bars that have existed in the city and chronicles the various aspects of the LGBTQ community that have grown within them. Directed and produced by Paul Detwiler, the film has been released on the city's PBS station, KPBS.
The earliest example of a gay bar in San Diego came in the 1957, when straight ally Lou Arko bought the popular lunch club of the 1930's, the Brass Rail, and extended it into a meeting spot for gay people at night.
The post-World War II era heralded the opening of many more bars, catering to the independent men and women who had moved to the bustling port city for military jobs. During this time, when homosexuality was criminalized and it was even against the law for two men to dance together, the bars provided a meeting place for LGBTQ people who were otherwise isolated.
Ryan Phillippe Knows His Butt Was Your Gay Awakening
RYAN PHILLIPPE AND HIS BUTT HAD A BIG IMPACT ON THE LIVES OF YOUNG QUEER MEN.
In 1999, the Cruel Intentions cast was “old enough to know better, but too young to care.” The movie quickly became a cult classic and a box office smash, earning $75 million. Now, after nearly two decades, the movie returned to theaters, and the cast recently reflected on their experience working on the film.
Starring Ryan Phillippe, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Reese Witherspoon, Selma Blair, Joshua Jackson, Tara Reid, Swoosie Kurtz and Sean Patrick Thomas, Cruel Intentions is a cinematic buffet of the 2000s hottest young stars. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Phillippe opened up about his most bootylicious scene from the film.
Jane Fonda Calls For Hollywood to "Invest as Much in Saving Films as Making Them"
Emphasizing that the resources available to preserve Hollywood’s film history are “woefully inadequate,” Jane Fonda urged the Hollywood community to “invest as much in saving [films] as making them."
That was the call to action at the The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) Film Restoration Summit, which the HFPA presented in partnership with The Film Foundation and Institut Lumière, Saturday at the Theatre at Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.
"More than 50 percent of films made before 1950 are lost to us forever," HFPA president Meher Tatna warned, explaining that the HFPA's commitment to preserving cinema history through support of film restoration is one of its most important initiatives. She added that the HFPA’s “decades long” support of this mission has already seen more than $6.5 million invested in 125 film restoration projects.
Fonda noted that this isn't just about preserving Hollywood classics, but also newsreels and documentary material. "Films were made because filmmakers wanted to make sure what happened would never be forgotten," she said. "If we allow documents of our past to disappear we end up [without the whole picture]. We can't know where we are going if we don't know where we have been."
Gone with the Wind Heads Back to Theaters for Its 80th Anniversary
An all-time classic is making its way back to the big screen.
80 years after its initial release in 1939, Gone with the Wind will screen at participating locations for two days only this year. Fans of the Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh classic can watch the movie at the end of this month on Thursday Feb. 28 and Saturday March 3.
Though the movie remains a classic, modern audiences have received it with mixed views due to its representation of black people. It was most recently pulled from an annual summer movie festival in Memphis after attendees complained about its racial insensitivity.

Even though there is no one out here in La La Land I've met who thinks Black Panther is that good as a movie. Yet, as a piece of representation, they are supporting it."

2. "They've forced me into having anal sex several times and said that 'black people can handle the pain better.'"
Some white guys say that they don't like 'dark guys' (this term is awful) because of taste or because their dicks are too big for them. Some friends have hooked up with me thinking only about the chance to see a big dick or because they imagine that black guys are better in bed. They've played with my hair and 'complimented' me on my sexual performance because I'm black. They've also forced me into having anal sex several times and said that 'black people can handle the pain better.' —Rafael Porto, 25 years old.
