Remembering ‘Bisexual’ Gay Porn Star Jack Wrangler

Porn star. AIDS activist. Chain smoker. However you remember “rumored bisexual” Jack Wrangler, his library of 85 adult flicks will certainly cement him as an industry legend. And, at the personal level, perplexing. Said Wrangler in an interview long before his death from lung disease: “I just couldn’t live the gay lifestyle; it’s too hard to live. I’m very competitive, and with two guys having the same kind of thoughts, it’ll always be too hard for me. With a woman, there are different kinds of challenges because [ women ] come from a different place. Your interactions [ with women ] are always going to be surprising and different, whereas with a guy it’s one-on-one. It was just too hard; I tried it.” Above, the trailer for GayVN-winning documentary Wrangler, Anatomy of an Icon. [Examiner]
