On another thread, there’s a comment that gay pornstar was on an episode of PBS’ In the Life. Does anyone know which episode it was or which year? Also, there comments that he was actually openly gay. Is this true?

I was a young gayling in the early 90’s in Boston and he was definitely one of what they call the “A List” queens. Any gay Bostonian remember Michael Smith aka Dolly DePeyster and her dreadful gossip column? He ran with this crowd and was out a lot, I think he may have even been a bartender.
Anyways he was very pretty back then, this had to be 30 years ago, and I’m 50 so he’s gotta be in the neighborhood next to 60 by now. I’m pretty sure his name is Michael.

Aww, thanks R18. I came out very young and though I’m not retired at 52 here in Tampa yet, it’s definitely a retirement from hectic single life the last 20 years scraping in NYC. I took a job at Club Cafe when I turned 16 so I got a head start in gay life very young. I remember being SO jealous of all the fun the older boys were having, and BOY do I not feel that way now!

I read something about him years ago. After he left porn and eventually landed back east he had less than zero interest in talking about his porn past and would you know right quick. I don't know if he was embarrassed or ashamed of it or what, but people who met him found out very fast not to bring it up.

Phil Bradley by all accounts was from New England and those stories about being a bartender before and after doing porn seem repeated enough to credit. SmutJunkie link above has comments from a poster saying PB was an alcoholic who finally turned his life around.....
Whoever Phil Bradley was he certainly managed to hide his tracks well. There simply isn't any information regarding real name, place of birth, DOB, etc... out there. Donnie Russo and other former co-stars may know something, but they aren't telling. Colt, Catalina and other studios he shot films for certainly had the basics in their records, but again no one is spilling that *T*.
|by Anonymous||reply 48||03/30/2021|
The fact that so little is known about him après porn lends credence to the info that wanted nothing to remind him of his time with it. Sounds to me like he decided if his life was going to be a success he had to do everything in his power to wipe the slate on that part of his life clean.

^Still, there seems to be nothing online nowadays definitive about his death or current whereabouts. I am *certain* that the consensus in gay mags back in the mid-90's was that he had died of AIDS, like lots of other porn stars then, many of whom died JUST before medications were rolled out that helped men survive the infection. I remember the news that he had died because I always thought he was pretty sexy.
|by Anonymous||reply 62||04/02/2021|
There are a lot of articles online about gay and straight porn stars from the 80s and 90s who have died and every major city has a gay periodical, so it would likely have been printed somewhere if it is true.

PB looked good in that 2005/2006 dated clip. If he got off (and stayed away from meth), along with sticking to AIDs meds and leading a healthier lifestyle he may still be with us.
Many New England gay communities are insular as those in small towns. If Phil Bradley died word would have gotten out somehow even if only by local gossip.
Then again who knows... For ages people were trying to run Cully Holland (the hunk in music video "Voices Carry") to ground with no concrete answers. There were rumors he died of HIV/AIDS related issues, but nothing could be found anywhere. Finally several years ago word finally got out with confirmation Kevin Joseph Gallery died in 1991...
Many who worked with Phil Bradley (such as Donnie Russo) are still alive and likely would have heard something in back channels of porn community if the guy had died.

No, don't believe that is correct.
On a website Kristen Bjorn (IIRC) talks about first shoot Phil Bradley was supposed to do for him in Montreal. He was turned away at the border because of some "other problems" Mr. Bjorn had previously with actors/models. On second attempt things went smoothly.....
This would not have happened if Phil Bradley was a resident of Montreal and Canadian citizen.

Same persons who would know about any of the various porn actors or models whose names appear in the litany of "WHET" (instead of WEHT) threads.
Other porn actors/models, those who handled the administrative nuts and bolts for porn studios or models (contracts, payroll, talent scouts, etc..., directors, producers, photographers.... Of them all the latter people would have at least Phil Bradley's real name and other information such as DOB because it would be needed on contracts, tax filings, etc....
Since it was mentioned in this thread those involved with that "In The Life" segment certainly also at least know PB's real name and so forth because he would have had to sign various consent forms.
As with so many porn actors or models who seemingly have vanished off face of earth it is highly likely people do know who and where they are, even if in their graves. They just don't see it as any of their business putting other people's personal business out on internet.
