Perfume Genius is the stage name for solo artist Mike Hadreas. A 16-second promotional video for his second album,Put Your Back N 2 It was banned on youtube, for content that was deemed to not be "family-safe".
The video in question showed a clothed Hadreas and porn-star Arpad Miklos embracing. Both Hadreas and Miklos were known to be well involved in their respective gay communities.
It's been a year since that video was released, and earlier this month Miklos committed suicide.

In an article about Miklos' death, bring up that "Miklos's untimely passing appears to add to a recent slew of death in the gay porn industry, most recently Josh Weston's late last year along with well-known former actors Dror Barak and Erik Rhoades, calling into the question the mental health issues surrounding those in the adult film industry."

This post was deleted for the following reason: This is pulling a lot of different hot-button issues (censorship, porn, gay porn, suicide, mental health) under the same umbrella, while not really offering any insights or info aside from suggesting these are related, and as such is ripe for more-heat-than-light discussion. Maybe think about a re-do on this, and contact us if you have any questions. -- taz
