From Tommy Pisani’s article from Next Magazine:
A little rain last Thursday night didn’t stop the crowds from honoring one of the biggest names in gay art. “Wanted: Peter Berlin,” an exhibit of erotic self-portraits at ClampArt, opened September 10th, showcasing some of Berlin’s most titillating stills from over the decades.
Born Baron Armin Hagen von Hoyningen-Huene in 1942, Berlin moved to San Francisco in the early 1970s and became an instant sex icon. “It would be so hard trying to pick up boys when they couldn’t even pronounce my name!,” Berlin said with a laugh. “I needed to submit to the American culture and that started by becoming Peter Berlin.”
