Twenty years after he was named Playgirl‘s Man of the Year, Dirk Shafer is returning to the magazine in the upcoming issue hitting newstands on September 4.

Shafer, 49, wasn’t out publicly when he appeared in the mag back in 1992, but fairly soon after recounted his experiences as a closeted sex symbol in the mockumentary Man of the Year, which he wrote, directed and starred in.

Playgirl editor Nicole Caldwell told Queerty Shafer is getting a 16-page spread and interview with his actress friend Lucy Lawless.
