NEW YORK, NY — Gay producer Michael Lucas will be debating at Oxford University in England on June 3.

The debate, in proposition of the motion “This House Believes That The Gay Rights Movement Has Undermined Family Values,” will be held at the Oxford Union.

When asked why Lucas was chosen as a debater, Alexander Lau, organizer of the debate said, “First, we thought that his resolute identification with the Jewish community, in the context of open homosexuality, would lend him strong opinions on the ‘family values’ around which our debate centers. Second, his vociferous advocacy of safe sex in the gay community epitomizes attempts by the gay rights movement to appear more closely aligned to traditional mores, and to move away from old stereotypes. Michael's position at the forefront of the gay entertainment industry can but make this message all the more compelling.”

Lucas said, “Oxford University is a world-renowned institution, and a global leader in education and scholarship. I am honored that Oxford chose me as a debater on such an interesting and important topic. I will do my best to convey how the GLBT community has expanded and improved upon concepts about what it means to be a family.”

No stranger to the lecture circuit, Lucas has tackled topics ranging from the adult industry, safe sex, and relationships, to politics, the GLBT community, and Israel, the company said.

He has previously spoken at Yale University (first at a master’s tea, then as a member of a panel discussion on pornography), New York University, Rutgers University, and Stanford University. His appearance at Stanford sparked five highly discussed articles in the school’s press.

In addition, Lucas said his article “On Gay Porn” was included in a 2006 volume of the Yale Journal of Law and Feminism.

Lucas is President and CEO of Lucas Entertainment.
