Brent Corrigan Mainstream Film Truth
The mainstream film, Truth, I posted about once before is now out on DVD. It’s being classified a psychological thriller and it stars former porn star, Brent Corrigan. He’s using the name Sean Paul Lockhart.
Truth, a psychological thriller starring former porn star Sean Paul Lockhart (a.k.a. Brent Corrigan), is now available on DVD. The plot follows Caleb (Lockhart) as he pursues a romance with Jeremy (Rob Moretti), whom he met online. As they begin to fall for each other, it soon becomes clear that there is more to Caleb than meets the eye. A troubled past and a mentally ill mother are among the dark secrets he tries to conceal from his new lover, who finds himself tangled in Caleb’s web of lies. Steamy and suspenseful, Truth is a cautionary tale of romance in the digital age that also features a stellar performance from Emmy-winner Blanche Baker, of Sixteen Candles fame.

I find this interesting and I’m going to follow it just to see how…and if…he makes the full transition to mainstream films. I’m not sure it’s ever been done before, and with a gay porn star at that. Evidently, he’s landed a few other small mainstream roles, too.
Since his indie gay film debut as Sean Paul Lockhart in the Charlie David mystery-drama, Judas Kiss, adult favorite Brent Corrigan has managed to make a new name for himself as a legit actor in a mixed bag of indie features including Sister Mary, Triple Crossed and now, the new romantic chiller, Truth. From the film’s trailer it looks like Lockhart gives a pretty convincing performance. He’s the apparently sweet, yet truly Jekyll-and-Hyde kind of guy who anyone might fall for — in this case writer-director-star Rob Moretti.
There’s more here. I’ve often wondered if it’s possible for an author of over 100 gay erotic romance novels and various short stories to make the transition into mainstream fiction. I’m not sure it can be done, but I’ve been aching to try it out. And this might be the year.
Benham Bros on HGTV
I knew this was coming when I first posted about it last week. The Benham brothers who had a show canceled on HGTV for being closely associated with anti-gay organizations are now claiming that HGTV was bullied by the gay agenda. I guess they fail to realize that there are straight people with gay family members watching HGTV, or straight people with gay friends and co-workers watching, too. Or for that matter, gay people who own or are connected to HGTV. That lack of reality always surprises me even though it shouldn’t at this point. Are these guys living in such a hooded environment they don’t know any gay people themselves? It’s actually hard to imagine this anywhere in the US.
In any event, here’s what the two Christians are saying now:
“We love all people. I love homosexuals. I love Islam, Muslims, and my brother and I would never discriminate. Never have we — never would we,” David Benham said in the above clip. “Never have I ever spoken against homosexuals, as individuals, and gone against them. I speak about an agenda. And that’s really what the point of this is — is that there is an agenda that is seeking to silence the voices of men and women of faith.”
I’m not even going to comment. There are numerous articles out that show the anti-gay beliefs…among many other “anti” beliefs that surprised even me. I just wonder how these “Christians” go to sleep at night after dealing with all that hate. And I’m not joking about that.
There’s a lot out about this one. You can read more here…and here…and here… The last link will show you how David Benham is the co-founder of a hugely twisted, unhealthy coalition that causes more damage to gays than school yard bullying with their approach to being gay and Christian.
Flip Benham’s eldest son, David Benham, is a co-founder of the Coalition and serves as its strategic coordinator.
And they are still crying bully.
North Carolina Gay Marriage Licenses
If Mark Chilton of North Carolina becomes the next Register of Deeds in Orange County, N.C, he’s promised to start issuing same sex marriage licenses even though same sex marriage is illegal in NC.
“I’m a legal scholar as well as a real-estate attorney,” said Chilton Thursday. “And after reading all of the cases that are involved with same-sex marriage that have come down from the federal courts, it seems very clear to me that North Carolina’s state constitutional amendment against same-sex marriage is definitely contrary to the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.”
It should be interesting to see what happens if he does get elected and does issue the licenses. I’ve read the legal argument he mentions above before, right here in Pennsylvania. However, Mayor Nutter of Philadelphia, and the Mayor of New Hope flatly refused to perform same sex marriage because it’s illegal in Pennsylvania. Both mayors support same sex marriage publicly. I’ve also posted about the Montgomery County, PA, clerk, Bruce Hanes, who started issuing same sex marriage licenses even though it’s illegal in PA. And a judge ruled against him and ordered he stop issuing the licenses.
At least Hanes went down on the right side of history and he was willing to stand up for something he believed in.
