Currently, Frank (DBA Turk Mason) is the Editor-In-Chief & Creative Director of Gloss Magazine, Graphic Artist for various venues & promoters from SF to Las Vegas, and co-creater / talent scout of Sweet Turkie.
These two San Francisco based entertainers joined forces in late 2011, and have since taken the SF gay night life by storm. Their first joint endeavor was in 2008 when they co-hosted a Halloween event for the STOP AIDS campaign. Years later they met again to co-host a series of events at Supper Club SF. From there, Turk was featured in the music videos for BeBe's third and fourth singles and accompanied BeBe on tour as a backup dancer. They later went on to co-star in a short film released in mid 2014.
Realizing how good of a team they made, the next logical step was to develop and co-host a party of their own; this party became known as 'Porno'. The premise behind this party was to have a venue where adult industry performers, producers, promoters, fans, and friends, could meet, dance, drink, and have a great time. Porn Stars and Drag Queens have always had a certain kinship; this party brought them together, naughtily of course.
With the resources and contacts that BeBe and Turk have made over their long careers, they have been able to create this incredible talent collective.
