Gay porn studio will donate 100% of sales to gay Russian refugees

A new porn studio has been launched to fight for gay rights.

Monarchy Distribution, based in Sherman Oaks in Los Angeles, announced the launch of Boys Town Studios, a gay porn studio that will donate 100% of sales to supporting LGBT rights.

Mike Kulich, owner of Monarchy Distribution, said in an interview with XBIZ he created this new non-profit studio to ‘give back to the LGBT community’.

‘I want to help the people suffering all over the world and living in persecuting countries using the best way I know how: making quality porn.’

Scott Hunter, who has worked for porn studios including COLT, Raging Stallion, Lucas Entertainment and Men.com told GSN: ‘I think it’s incredibly humbling that a studio would choose to donate all of the profits to charity. In a way it reassures you that there still peoplewho value the community we have, and people who are willing to support others in their difficulties.’

When asked what segment of the LGBT community he’d like to see supported by Boys Town Studios funds, The Grabby award-winning adult actor told GSN: ‘Helping young people who have been thrown out of home, or who need counselling for bullying or harassment, or those having suicidal thoughts due to their sexuality is vital.

‘I think something to offer emotional, housing and even psychological support is a very worthy cause.’

Kulich said profits from the first film under Boys Town Studios, due for release in October, will go to gay Russians seeking asylum. 

Since Vladimir Putin signed into law a ban on ‘homosexual propaganda’ in Russia, gay Russians have been increasingly subject to discrimination from politicians and fellow Russians.

Earlier this week a Russian lawmaker said gay rights activists must die for their ‘extremism’.

‘While the advancements of gay rights in the U.S. have changed our society for the better,’ Kulich said, ‘the setbacks abroad particularly in Russia made me see that this type of project was a necessity.’

The porn studio owner hopes that members from the LGBT community around the world will reach out to Boys Town Studios for help.

‘Anyone will be able to write Boys Town Studios and tell their stories about how bigotry and homophobia has affected their lives, and we will step into help those victims as much as we can.’
