Al Parker (born Andrew Robert Okun June 25, 1952 – August 17, 1992) was a gay American porn star, producer, and director. He died from complications of AIDS at the age of 40.
Back in the early days of porn - being on reel to reel - it seemed there were few good looking and sexy guys available and Al Parker seemed to be one of the first hot sexy masculine hung men to hit the porn industry and even run his own studio.
He was - for a long time - a major part of gay sex culture and yet when he died almost no gay magazine wrote a single word about him and here in the UK, the silence was deafening. It seems back then, porn stars were still seen as second rate even in the gay world and where the gay media - who are all basically shits anyway, completely ignored this mans passing while jacking off to his movies. Good enough to fuck with but not good enough to respect.
Times have changed and so they should as sex workers are more valid than many give credit for and many who speak against, are often jealous. PERIOD.
