Gay Porn Industry Mourns The Loss Of Dill, Sterling

Posted December 7, 2006 10:00 AM by with 0 comments

Legendary director Matt Sterling and porn star/director Andy Dill both died yesterday.

Matt Sterling — considered to be one of the founders of the gay porn industry, having directed some of the first gay porn “loops” for his own Brentwood Studios, along with best-selling pre-condom classics like The Bigger The Better — died after an 18-year bout with a neurological disease that caused him to be wheelchair-bound for the last several years of his life.

He starred in about twenty films for Raging Stallion, Titan and MSR before going on to start Dill Media, where he produced and directed “Bedrock” and several websites focused on red-headed guys. He was most recently named Vice President of Bear Films.

Matt Sterling remembered by GayVN, Fleshbot, Jason Curious.

Andy Dill remembered by Lavender Lounge, J.C. Adams, Fleshbot.

    I met Andy Dill last Fall on the Bearfilms Caribbean cruise and he couldn’t have been sweeter and more genuine. A really, really nice man. This news is so sad! Very sorry to hear about Andy.
