PHOENIX — Gay production companies Hyde Park and Dark Realm will host a benefit for Our Brother’s Keeper Foundation to coincide with their “Twink Dreams” release party to be held at Rocks nightclub in Albany, N.Y., on Sept 16.

“We had originally planned a video release party for Hyde Park’s ‘Twink Dreams’ at Rocks,” Dark Realm director Ted McIntyre said. “We heard that Our Brother’s Keepers was having its 20th Anniversary and felt that a fund raiser in their honor would be perfect.”

Our Brother’s Keeper, which provides support resources for HIV-positive individuals and their families, is celebrating its 20th anniversary.

“We are very honored that Hyde Park Productions and Dark Realm Productions would hold a fundraiser for us here in Albany,” Our Brother’s Keeper Vice President James Larson said. “All funds raised from the auction will be used to help those afflicted with HIV/AIDs and their families and I’m sure that with the models’ help, a lot of money will be raised.”

Hyde Park Productions, known primarily for its twink content, is set to release “Twink Dreams” on Sept. 20 through distributor White Tiger Releasing. The title stars Jamie Knight and Ryan Meyers, who also will help to host a benefit auction at Rocks on the night of the release party. Autographed copies of “Twink Dreams” will be one of the items on the auction block.

Knight and Meyers also star in Hyde Park’s upcoming release “Twink Awakening,” which will be filming on location in Albany. The production also features Jerick Dalton, Wes Dynasty and Eric Kadin, who also will be making an appearance at the “Twink Dreams” party.

Rocks nightclub is located at 77 Central Ave. in Albany, N.Y., and can be reached at (518) 472-3588.
