SAN FRANCISCO — Gay porn star Josh Weston has died from HIV-related complications, according to TheSword.

Weston, 39, worked exclusively for Falcon Studios before appearing in features for Hot House, Colt and Channel 1 Releasing.

Officials at Falcon and Hot House confirmed his passing yesterday morning, TheSword said.

Weston, 39, began his career as a dancer at the Nob Hill Theater in San Francisco, and later was discovered there by Chi Chi LaRue.

He signed with Falcon in 2001 and went on to star in "Deep South," "Heaven to Hell" and  "Taking Flight" — some of the studio's biggest titles.

Weston joins other gay porn stars who have died in 2012. That list includes Erik Rhodes, Adam Faust, Corbin Fisher’s Sean, Roman Ragazzi and others, according to TheSword.
