Advocate: Dustin Lance Black Responds

Dustin Lance Black Responds - Yahoo! News
Three year-old photos of Milk writer Dustin Lance Black engaged in what appears to be unsafe sex popped up on the internet Friday – but they wont stand in the way of the Oscar winner's work in support of gay rights.

"It is unfortunate that individuals and other outside parties are trying to profit from material which is clearly private," Black said in a statement released to E!

More important than the embarrassment of this incident is the misleading message these images send. I apologize and cannot emphasize enough the importance of responsible sexual practices."

According to Malkin, the photos are of Black and someone he was dating at the time. Black's lawyers are said to be seeking legal action to stop distribution of the pics....
