American gay film star, known as Al Parker. Okun had his first sexual encounter with another man at knifepoint when he was only 15. A handsome man, he got his entry into the world of porn films in the mid 60s when he was introduced to Colt Film studios. He went on to direct, produce and star in numerous porn movies. As Al Parker , he became synonymous with the "clone" look, fashionable with gay men in the 70s. His biography is entitled, "Clone: The Life and Legacy of Al Parker: Gay Superstar" (published posthumously in 2000).
Okun had a 14-year relationship with producer and actor Richard Cole who died four days after being diagnosed with AIDS in late 1986. Okun became an advocate and activist for safe sex, but he too died of the dreaded disease on August 17, 1992, leaving behind an unfinished autobiography.
