About Us: What Exactly Is Str8UpGayPorn?
Two adult industry insiders, Zachary Sire and Davyd Dixon, are proud to announce the launch of a brand new news, gossip, and entertainment megasite covering all facets of the gay porn industry, the aptly titled “Str8UpGayPorn.com.” With a daily focus on breaking news, opinion, and analysis of industry trends, Str8UpGayPorn’s Editor-in-Chief Zachary Sire will shape the conversation and frame the debate for readers wanting the very latest in gay porn.
Additionally, Str8UpGayPorn delivers new release and casting updates, hardcore galleries and trailers, trending studios and performer charts, plus a collection of hand-picked news items tracking gay culture and entertainment news. Str8UpGayPorn is not a blog, it’s a one-stop destination for all things related to gay culture, gay porn, and everything in between.
The brainchild of marketing and public relations guru Davyd Dixon, Str8UpGayPorn was initially conceived over a year ago, and with the recent naming of writer and journalist Zachary Sire as Editor-in-Chief, the site’s infrastructure was complete. Dixon and Sire’s vision for Str8UpGayPorn is to cover the adult industry with one agenda: That there is no agenda. While today’s media—whether it be mainstream or otherwise—seem to pay lip service to their advertisers through glowing reviews and toothless regurgitation of press releases masquerading as “news,” Str8UpGayPorn publishes the good, the bad, and the ugly hard truths that readers crave and some in the industry fear. As the site’s tagline reads: No Filter. No Agenda. No Censors.
“I’m thrilled that this project is off the ground, and I couldn’t think of anyone else who I’d rather launch this with than Zach,” says Davyd Dixon. “He is one of the only people doing true opinion writing, and his voice is something that the industry not only wants but actually needs. I thought Str8UpGayPorn was the perfect platform for Zach to shine, and I was right. Even though we just launched, the site is chock full of fantastic stories and entertaining news items from left to right! In the first six days of launch—around a holiday no less—we’ve already seen a huge reaction from both fans and industry, so I couldn’t be happier.”
“Editing this site is literally a dream come true,” says Zachary Sire. “Literally, I dreamed last night that I was editing the site, and then I woke up this morning and started editing the site! Seriously, I’m so grateful to Davyd for bringing me on board, and I’m so proud to be a part of something so bold and untethered, which is in such great demand these days.”
Davyd Dixon has worked with the biggest entertainment companies in Hollywood, including William Morris Agency, IMAX Corporation, Universal/Vivendi, and others. In 2005, Davyd Dixon Entertainment (DDE) entered the adult entertainment business representing the biggest names in the adult space, handling several facets of the clients’ business from marketing, PR, advertising, branding, business development, strategic partnerships, mergers and acquisitions, and more. DDE’s current long term client roster includes the biggest gay adult brands in the business.
Zachary Sire began his career covering the adult industry in 2008 as an associate editor for Unzipped, Men, and Freshmen magazines under the here! Media Specialty Publications umbrella. By 2009, he was named editor of the mags’ online home, Unzipped.net. In 2010, Sire was offered the position as Editor-in-Chief of TheSword.com, which he accepted. During his tenure, Sire steered TheSword to traffic and ad revenue records through his unparalleled industry coverage, exclusive scoops, and sharp critiques. After three years, Sire sought a new, independent home to showcase his reporting and unrivaled brand of wit, and in late 2013 co-founded Str8UpGayPorn.com.
