From On Top Magazine:
Gay porn star Arpad Miklos, real name Peter Kozma, is dead. He was 45.
Speaking with Howard Bragman on his web show Gwissues, writer Randal Lynch said Miklos was found dead in his New York City apartment on Monday.
“He passed away sometime on Sunday,” Lynch said. “He had, unfortunately, committed suicide.”
A chemical engineer by trade, Miklos was discovered in Hungary by gay porn director Kristen Bjorn. His first appeared in the 1995 film The Vampire of Budapest.
“He was a great guy. On top of that, there was a lot more to him than just that surface persona. He was a very active person in the gay community. He gave a lot of money to charities, and just overall a really a good guy,” Lynch said.
What a fucking tragic time this has been for the gay porn community. Maybe there should be special services set up by porn stars for porn stars to prevent these things from happening. If you look to the studios for this service, it will never happen! Maybe a free hotline, or something. Maybe the fans could pitch in? Such a fucking waste! Everyone looks on and sees the troubles. depression, and pain and does nothing! How does this happen? Does nobody care?
For those of you who wonder if being an adult entertainer influenced Arpad’s choice to end his life, perhaps you should read Colby Keller’s thoughtful reflections on it here. Colby both knew Mr. Miklos and also is himself in the industry.
