Gay adult film star Sharok is used to getting the attention of fans for his extensive x-rated resume on platforms such as OnlyFans.
But last week, Sharok put the focus on his feelings on a personal social issue as he walked the runway for the first time ever at Louis Gabriel Nouchi’s Fall 2023 menswear show at Paris Fashion Week.
Sharok, who is Iranian American, used his couture close-up to draw attention to the ongoing civil rights crackdown going on in Iran, where the government continues arresting and executing citizens who voice dissent.
The uprisings began in September 2022, following the arrest of 22-year-old Iranian woman Masha Amini for not wearing the mandatory hijab covering in accordance with the regime’s regulations. While at the police station, Amini was taken to the hospital and later died under suspicious circumstances.
In the weeks and months that followed, Sharok has used his social media to add to the voices expressing their outrage to the situation in Iran.
Not wanting to waste having the spotlight on an international stage, Sharok decided to utilize his appearance at Paris Fashion Week for a larger and more important cause.
Amid the scene of the show’s other male models, Sharok walked the catwalk with his shirt unbuttoned revealing a tattoo that translates to “Women. Life. Freedom” while holding up a sign that read “Stop Executions in Iran.”
