Performer Jack Wrangler, a star of gay adult films and musical theater, died April 7 from complications from lung disease at the age of 62.
The 1970s pornographic actor was recently honored in the documentary Wrangler: Anatomy of an Icon, which won the 2009 GayVN Award for best alternative release. The DVD is available from TLA Releasing.
“Jack was one of the earlier pioneers in helping to bring awareness to the gay community by being open about who he was and about following his dreams,” said Lewis Tice, director of publicity and marketing for TLA Releasing. “We are deeply saddened as he is an essential part of our gay history. Our sympathies go out to his family.”
