BeaMonstar Sponsoring Bijou’s 40th Anniversary Celebration
By: Laudi Jaterka, Staff Writer
BeaMonstar Products will help Bijou Video and the Bijou Theater and Sex Club celebrate four decades of sex with a sponsorship of Bijou’s 40th anniversary party taking place Jan. 22 in Chicago. BeaMonstar Products President Jeff Bolanos said that the sponsorship signifies BeaMonstar’s support of the GLBT community, and all sexual lifestyles.
With all the current media coverage of the sudden increase of gay teen suicides incited by bullying and the controversy surrounding gays in the military, BeaMonstar Products would like to extend our support of the gay community, who have to stand courageously against discrimination,” Bolanos said. “The Bijou Theater has stood strong for 40 years, and we at BeaMonstar applaud them and are more than happy to align ourselves with their successful brand.”
Bijou founder Steven Toushin, has been operating the theater continuously since 1969 as a sex-positive gay erotica resource for local Chicago men as well as for customers seeking classic gay erotic video worldwide. “A gay porn theater and sex club in business 40 years: ‘Impossible! Unheard of!’ Most businesses don’t last half as long,” Toushin said. “I gotta tell ya it’s been a-hell-of-a-ride through the busts by the federal government, the Internet, and I have no idea how I’ve done it. What I do know is that I’m so very proud that Bijou has serviced, given sexual satisfaction to over five and a half million gay men in its 40 years.”
BeaMonstar is set to expand their reach in the Gay and Lesbian Marketplace in 2010/2011 season. Make sure to stay tuned to JRL CHARTS for all of BeaMonstar’s exciting new products coming to retail stores nationwide.
