Goodbye, Arpad Miklos

Arpad Miklos, we will miss you.
It was very sad to read today, over the Internet, that Arpad Miklos took his life at the age of 45. I was always very fond of this Eastern European gentleman and thought he was one of the sexiest of the male-adult-film superstars. In fact, it was almost exactly a year ago that I labeled him one of my Top Five Most Fabulous Men.

Arpad's real name was Peter Kozma. (That's also a good name for a gay porn star; sounds like "Cosmo"!)  He was a chemist from Hungary (emphasis on "Hung") who, once he was recruited as an international porn star, moved to New York City where he ended up admired in a career through films, videos, magazines, live performances and as an escort.

He appeared in a music video I enjoyed, as well, by Perfume Genius.

"It is with great sadness I report that Arpad Miklos, my co-star in my very first movie, passed away yesterday. He was, for a time, an incredibly close friend and confidant. A beautiful, smart, loving and complicated man, may he truly rest in peace...," singer Frederick Ford said today on Facebook. 

According to Joe.My.God., "[I]n New York City [Arpad] contributed to several LGBT charities and worked on an American Apparel fundraiser for the Ali Forney Center."

R.I.P., Arpad/Peter. So young, so tragic. You will be missed by many. God bless!
