A fictional account of his life, “Man of the Year,” examines the conflict that results from being a closeted gἀy guy who serves as an s*x icon for heteros*xual women. Mr. Shafer’s public coming-out in the movie led to a slowdown in his career as a nμdist model.
In an interview with The New York Times, Stephen Holden wrote that the film:
“gleefully sabotages the notion that s*x objects are sacred objects. On a deeper level, ‘Man of the Year’ treats Mr. Shafer’s modeling experience as a metaphor for the way society pressures gay people to act straight. After watching Mr. Shafer wriggle uncomfortably inside the role he has agreed to play, it comes as a relief when he finally abandons it.”
Circular gἀy circuit gatherings were the subject of another Shafer movie, “Circuit” (2001). through a persona, a police officer from a small town who relocates to West Hollywood and discovers romance and adventure. Later, Mr. Shafer worked as a personal trainer and made one final appearance in Playgirl in 2012.
