Gay Porn Star, Erik Rhodes has Died


I wasn't aware of all the demons Erik (James) was fighting, but after reading his "obituary," I was saddened and felt like his story needed to be shared.
I'm hoping sharing this post will help someone facing the same demons.

 SAN FRANCISCOFalcon Studios contract star Erik Rhodes, 30, died at 5:30 a.m. Thursday morning in New York from a heart attack during his sleep.
Falcon officials, including Adam Q. Robinson, Falcon’s vice president of production, issued statements through various social media outlets this morning about Rhodes’ passing.
“It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of Erik Rhodes this morning. Erik died of a heart attack in his sleep,” Robinson tweeted. “Erik has been an amazing friend & part of the Falcon family for 8 years, a man of steel on the outside but all teddy bear on the inside.”
Chris Ward, Falcon/Raging Stallion Studios president, offered the following statement: "We are deeply saddened by Erik's passing. He was a part of our family and we are devastated.  Our thoughts are with his loved ones."
