UPDATE: Kevin has blocked me from Facebook (we were never friends), but I am told he took the picture down. But not before he write, in response to his own friends chastising him about his absurd Trumpism, that Trump's pussy-grabbing was no big deal because that's what women want behind closed doors. Talk about someone with a truly warped vision of the world.
Eighties gay-porn actor Kevin Williams — real name Ted Currall — was definitely an icon of his era, studio, hair color and bedroom position — so it's kind of a head-scratcher in 2017 that someone who made his living in a field that doesn't jibe with Republican family values/anti-LGBTQ rhetoric has a boner for Trump.
The former porn actor updated his Facebook page to honor Trump's inauguration. It would appear some of his followers aren't on the Trump Train with him, as expressions of disappointment (so far) outnumber expressions of support.
I don't have any links to statements he's made in favor of Trump, and one of his uploaded photos is of the LGBTQ equality symbol, but the updated image kinda speaks for itself.

Currall is certainly welcome to his opinion, and I am not inviting people to bombard him. But it's news to me when a gay-porn icon can support a man who within an hour of assuming the Oval Office made aggressive moves against LGBTQ inclusion — and who's promised to go much further.
Maybe he has some form of CTE from all the rough-sex scenes? It's a bummer because he is one of the few survivors of the biggest names in '80s porn, especially among guys who bottomed, and his page is actually often generous with personal photos from that era. I imagine many of the guys who died, their photos and effects were tossed in the trash by their families.
Just disappointing in an obviously gossipy and not very meaningful way. I mean, it's not like Ellen turned on us, y'know?
