After 44 years, Matthew Rush’s “golden ticket” arrived in the form of a phone call.
Matthew Rush, aka Greg Grove, was the first bi-racial porn star at a time when skin color was not part of the national conversation and diversity in gay porn was even more fleeting than it is now.
Long before social media and insta-fame viral videos, Matthew Rush achieved true gay porn superstar status the hard way: film by film and magazine cover by magazine cover. Yet it was recently on social media he revealed he has now found something he was missing all along the journey.
“Some children never get to know their biological parents. Some children are born into this world and get passed around from foster home to foster home. Some have two moms or two dads. Some never make it out of the womb.
Me, well I have amazing parents who told me every day they loved me. Some kids never hear that their entire lives. I’m grateful for my upbringing, but I was different. I looked different than my family. Then a month ago I get a call that completed the puzzle of my life. It was my biological father. We talked for hours. It was so amazing. I finally feel complete. I don’t have that missing piece that haunted me for years. I have two dads, a mom and stepmom and a brand new set of siblings! How cool is that?!
So guys, meet my papa. This is my favorite pic of him. We look so much alike! I love it. I can’t wait to unite with him.”
It was after his days at Falcon that I was fortunate to work with Matthew on over two dozen scenes for Pride Studios. Fortunate being the operative word. Matthew’s biological father has a lot to be proud of. They both found a golden ticket in each other and may they enjoy it for many years to come.
