In 2007, after what seemed an eternal hiatus, John returned to his acting roots in “The Touch” and followed that with the supporting role of ‘Ben’ in “MOM”. He can be seen currently in the recurring role of ‘Guy’ on the web-series “We Have To Stop Now” and was most recently cast in the lead of Film McQueen’s new full-length feature “Meth Head,” Which he has also signed on as co-producer.
John is also writing a one man show based on his life.
West Hollywood Gay Men's Forum
The City of West Hollywood will host the "Gay Men's Forum: Dialogue and Workshops" on Saturday, May 2, 2009 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Fiesta Hall at Plummer Park, 7377 Santa Monica Boulevard, West Hollywood. This FREE day-long event will focus on the theme: "Where We've Been. Where We Are. Where We're Heading" and will include contemporary experiences of gay men, panel discussions featuring a range of perspectives from the Gay community, special performances and interactive workshops. The event is free.
"Where We've Been. Where We Are. Where We're Heading" is the premise of the
West Hollywood Gay Men's Forum," said West Hollywood Councilmember John Duran.
"The rationale for these three premises is simple. We cannot understand why we
face the things we face as gay men if we don't understand our
nncontemporary history, and that's why we'll start the day with a theatrical
performance by Michael Kerns and fellow actors, which will walk us from the
biggest stepping stones in LGBT history from Stonewall days to Prop 8.
The Gay Men's Forum will also feature panels focusing on a variety of issues impacting gay men's lives. Some of these issues include life in the circuit party and drugs, apathy and political involvement, intimacy issues and relationships for gay men, nurturing up and coming gay leaders, HIV positive v. HIV negative: a divided community, and more.
The forum is being held in collaboration with the City of West Hollywood's Lesbian and Gay Advisory Board, community organizations and the City's Social Services Division.
