    • Synopsis
    • “Porno Uncle Jim” follows a nephew's search to uncover the truth behind his infamous and controversial great-uncle, J. J. Proferes – Washington D.C.'s forgotten king of porn.

      Described as a “renaissance man”, J.J. was instrumental in the gay rights struggle of the 1960s and 70s and his rise to becoming the “Sultan of an X-Rated Empire” (Washington Post) is an as-yet-untold story of a man who lived life at its extremes and reached his pinnacle before losing everything.

      “Porno Uncle Jim” shines a light on the gay scene of the 1960s and 70s, the history of gay rights and the rise of obscenity laws in America, ending in J.J.’s bizarre and eccentric life being turned on its head.
