Popular gay porn star Arpad Miklos has been found dead in his New York apartment.

On the latest installment of “Gwissues,” Howard Bragman interviewed New York writer Randal Lynch, who confirmed that Miklos (whose real name is Peter Kozma) died Feb. 3 after having apparently committed suicide. He was 45 years old.

Though Lynch said that a suicide note had been found, he offered few additional details. “He was a great guy on top of [being a porn star]. There was a lot more to him than just that surface persona,” he said. “He was a very active person in the gay community.”

“He wasn’t happy, I would say, but he wasn’t going into crying fits,” Lynch added. “He was a hard nut to crack.”

In 2012, the Hungarian-born Miklos gained more mainstream exposure when he starred in Seattle singer-songwriter Perfume Genuis’s video for “Hood,” which was eventually banned from YouTube.

Among those to offer their condolences was co-star Colby Keller, who described Miklos as “an incredible performer” who “kept cast and crew continually entertained” with his sense of humor off-screen, in a poignant blog post [link NSFW].

“Like any physically-demanding, socially-vexed form of labor, sex work isn’t easy work — not least because of the stigma and meager income,” Keller noted. “We should remember to celebrate Arpad, the sexy man behind the scenes and in front of the camera who gave so much of himself for our desire, and not condemn a choice privately considered and personally significant enough to result in such extreme measures.”
