Andrew Christian Inc., the Glendale-based gay men’s clothing retailer whose flagship store is in West Hollywood, has created a buzz by simultaneously mounting a safe-sex campaign while featuring a bareback porn actor in a promotional video.

San Francisco’s Bay Area Reporter (BAR) called out the apparent contradiction in a story published online Monday. BAR noted that that Andrew Christian includes in its shipments of clothing to customers a postcard produced in cooperation with the AIDS Healthcare Foundation that encourages condom use. But BAR also cited a recent press release from Andrew Christian that announces: “Andrew Christian turn (sic) up the Latin heat with super hung bareback porn star Antonio Biaggi.” The video can be seen online.

An Andrew Christian spokesperson denied any support for bareback sex in an interview with BAR. And an AHF spokesperson told BAR the seeming contradiction wasn’t a story.

Its a stretch to say that hiring a bareback porn star is somehow coming out in support for bareback sex. Porn is FAKE, it is entertainment! If a company hires Tom Cruise does this mean it has thrown its allegience to the Church of Scientology? Cruise is an actor that gets paid for a job. Biaggi is a model that got paid for a job. Get over it!

AIDS Healthcare Foundation says it’s not a story, yet they were the ones who shoved the mandatory condoms in all porn down our throats and made us all gag on it……when michael weinstein wants something, he gets it at ANY cost (money, fear, intimidation etc)….he is a real piece of work

I’m more in favor of Andrew Christian hiring Antonio Biaggi for promotional purposes than I am them promoting AIDS Healthcare Foundation with their postcard.
