SAN FRANSISCO —Raging Stallion exclusives Steve Cruz, Jake Deckard, Damien Cross and Antonio Biaggi will travel to New York City this week, for a one-day meet-and-greet at the Virgin Megastore. The Men of Raging Stallion will also appear at several events, in connection with New York City Pride festivities over the weekend.

The models will appear at Virgin Megastore, located in Union Square, from 2-5 p.m. on June 28.

“Being in Virgin Megastore is huge,” Raging Stallion’s Kent Taylor told XBIZ.

“We owe this entire event to the hard work of Jake Deckard. He made all the arrangements,” Taylor added. “Because of NYC Pride week, we have quite a few models making appearances in New York. He saw the opportunity and contacted Virgin directly and they were thrilled with the idea. The rest will be history on Saturday.”

Deckard, who won a Best Performer award at last month’s Grabby Awards in Chicago, will be at the store signing with Cruz, who took home a Grabby for Best Newcomer and also has been featured in a Bay Area radio and print campaign promoting STD/HIV testing.

Taylor said that for other NYC events, the studio is working with event promoter Max Scott, who has arranged for appearances at a dozen Pride week events, including several club events at the Stonewall Inn and View Bar. For a detailed list of appearances, click here.

The Virgin Megastores location in New York City’s Times Square also has hosted other adult industry personalities including starlet Tera Patrick, as well as the cast of gay producer Michael Lucas’ adult comedy hit “The Intern.” Virgin has also offered mainline gay studio COLT’s product line since 2005, in several of its store locations.

According to Taylor, Virgin Megastore also carries Raging Stallion product, and the Union Square location may have several DVD titles featuring Deckard, Cruz, Cross and Biaggi available for purchase on Saturday.
