Rare Photo of Dion McGregor

1 Dec

Dion McGregor made a brief appearance in his friend Peter DeRome’s 1971 film Mumbo Jumbo. Here’s a detail from a still that came my way via Ed Grant of Media Funhouse. Ed’s friend David McGillvray happens to be the fellow behind the recent documentary about DeRome (who, as a roommate of Dion’s in the 1950s, was subjected to many noisy somniloquies). The new film is called Peter DeRome: Grandfather of Gay Porn. Thanks to both Ed and David for providing this image, to Mr. DeRome for capturing it, and to the producers of the acclaimed new flick. DeRome, it appears, is something of a cinematic and cultural pioneer. {I was unaware at the time of writing that Mr. DeRome had passed away on June 21 of this year. See obituary posted on 28 Dec. SV}
