Wilfried Knight

Last night gay porn industry sources began noting the death of performer Wilfried Knight, 35, who some report took his own life in grief over the suicide of his longtime partner Jerry Enriquez earlier this month. Just over a week ago Knight posted a lengthy blog entry in which he blasted the cult-like abuse of Enriquez by the Canadian yoga apparel company that had employed him. In an entry posted earlier, Knight noted that since he and his partner were married in Canada, he had no inheritance rights regarding the Atlanta house owned by Enriquez, whose family is taking everything. Knight was born in Germany and raised in France. He made his porn debut in 2004 and made over 20 films.

How sad that a man's love is not cherished by his family. How awful that a man would be in such despair that he would kill himself. I pray for all those who are in such a plight. In all our enlightenments the greatest sorrow is that there is still so much discrimination and so much fear and greed. I pray that God forgives us humans for our ignorance, and lack of patience.

So sad. First Arpad, now Wilfried. Most people only see them as gay porn stars, but they were human too, and suffered tremendous pain that each probably thought could only be released through suicide, which is so wrong. If only someone reached out to console them or try to help them...

May you rest in peace, Wilfried; you will be missed.

the man just died so it doesn't seem appropriate that anyone would "want him!" or "not for me". how fucking crass horny men can be.

Damn it! Another one gone. I wish this industry had resources in place to prevent these tragedies. How many have to die before someone speaks up?
