Gay Star Interviews: There’s something I wanted to ask you about, and you tell me if you want to talk about this or not. You were in a serious car accident a few years ago.
Jason Pitt: Yeah.
GSI: How did that affect you? I don’t mean just physically, but your outlook and emotionally.
JP: It doesn’t affect me as much as it use to because I have a lot of support from a lot of my friends, but when the accident happened and I got out of the hospital and saw myself for the first time in the mirror next to my computer I started screaming and crying. It scared me to death. I cried for like 45 minutes because half my face was gone. And I still keep the scars covered up with my bangs. I want to go shorter with it but I’m not comfortable with it even though Chi Chi LaRue and all my friends, they all say it looks fine, it’s a good story. I get where they’re coming from, but I’m not too comfortable with it yet and I still have more surgeries to do. I just have to get those done before I feel more like me again.
GSI: I was going to ask you about the surgeries. Is there one eye that you can’t close completely?
JP: Yeah, my right eye stays open when I sleep. It doesn’t close all the way. I can’t wear my contacts for too long because the one in my right eye gets dryer quicker. It’s just small stuff like that that just gets to me and irritates me sometimes.
GSI: So the surgeries are going to correct that?
JP: Yeah, I’ve had three surgeries on my right eyelid ’cause when I had the accident it took my entire eyelid off and my eyebrow and everything, so they keep doing skin grafts from behind my ear like every six months, but when the skin graft heals the scars shrink and pulls it up a little more, so it gradually gets better each time I have the surgery but I just have to keep getting more until it closes all the way.
GSI: I’ll be honest. Since I found out about the accident I have really been looking at your pictures closely and I haven’t been able to notice the first scar or anything.
JP: Well, I’m glad. When I shoot pictures I shoot from different angles and when I shoot movies and stuff like that I sit down with the directors and tell the the angles that I’m comfortable shooting from and every thing like that so the scar doesn’t show and the eyelid looks like it closes. Like I can’t be shot above my head, like if I’m looking down at my penis while I’m jacking off or something like that; I can’t be shot above my head because you can tell that my eye stays open. Those are just the things that we have to work around.
GSI: Well, that will get better in time. Your skin will relax, the surgeries will do their thing. I just didn’t know a lot of the details other than you were in an accident and had a few surgeries, that’s about the extent of it.
JP: If you notice in some of my videos my right collar bone sticks out really far. It broke and almost came out of the skin. It’s still a big bump and I need to have it shaved down, I just don’t know if I want another scar on my chest from it.
GSI: You talked about your face, but how much damage did the accident cause?
JP: Well, we flipped to miss a deer and we plowed into a tree. My seat belt broke my collar bone and three of my ribs. Then the seat belt broke and I went through the windshield and it took off all of the skin on my face. I had torn ligaments in both my legs and I broke my ulna in my right arm and the main bone in my left forearm broke and came though the skin, so I have a scar there where the skin was peeled back and the bone came through. I had three cracked teeth which got pulled three months after the accident. I have the scars on my forehead, I have a scar on my hip from it and I have scars on the top of my head but the hair covers it up.
GSI: Oh my God, Jason, you’re lucky to be alive.
JP: Oh yeah, yeah. I know, definitely. And I’m thankful every day that I wake up that I’m still alive.
GSI: Someone was really looking out for you. For that seat belt to break and you to go through the windshield like that…
JP: It was a pretty bad night. I don’t remember the car accident, I don’t remember three weeks before the accident or a month after the accident. But a group of Mormons saw the accident and came over and they sat with me until the ambulance and helicopter got there. They put a divinitive prayer on me and that raised my religious views a lot more, especially being more respectful towards other religions and what they believe. They came to visit me like every other day in the hospital. They drove all the way from my home town to Atlanta just to see me and checked up with me almost every day when I got out of the hospital. They would come to my house. It was just really cool.
GSI: You really don’t remember anything three weeks prior to the accident?
JP: Yeah, like I don’t remember going to work, I don’t remember making money, I don’t remember going to school. It’s like a complete blank in my head from that period of time. I remember waking up in the hospital sometimes, but it’s just bits and pieces.
GSI: I hope you don’t mind me asking you about that. It’s a fascinating part of your life.
JP: Hey, I don’t mind talking about it. I’m completely comfortable with it now. It’s meant to be told. I survived something horrible and if I can share the story and save someone else’s life I’ll tell it 3,000 times.

Gorgeous Boy, Jason Pitt (Gay Star Interviews)
It's an interview with Phillip Aubrey: porn star, Spencer Reed's boyfriend, burp fetishist.
The COLT superstars joined a protest in Rome against the Catholic Church in order to make the claim that gay people are not pedophiles. There was a chihuaha involved.
I feel sorry for people with fetishes that can never be realized in real life. Take this Flickr user, who has to make do with his giants fetish using Photoshop.
I'm not one for bragging about intellectual accomplishments (it's something I learned from, you know, graduating with honors from Brown University), but Conner Habib is justifiably excited about his blurb in a book written by Carl Sagan's son.
