Jack Mackenroth is 47 MF’ing Years Old Somehow

We missed yet another hot guy (though I can’t say Big Dick since Mr. Mackenroth is very stingy with that side of things and I don’t know for sure) birthday this weekend and on April 29th, Jack Mackenroth turned 47. And a painting in an attic somewhere got a little bit older and grayer.

In celebration, and just because I like well done photos of sexy gentlemen, here’s a profile on Mr. Mackenroth from the thoughtful and gorgeous BeautifulMag:



6a00d83451cc7469e201bb08ef2760970d-800wiIn the 1980s, gay men were dying of AIDS in frightening numbers so when Jack Mackenroth went to see a doctor for ulcers in his throat, it seemed only logical the doctor ordered an HIV test. The year was 1989. Jack’s test came back positive, which was at this time basically a death sentence. But not for Jack. Even though people were dying all around him, he kept a positive, hopeful attitude. Jack Mackenroth turned out to be one of the lucky ones. More over, looking back now, he sees his diagnosis as a blessing as it got him to do the life-saving work he is doing now and made him the person he is today.

  1. I’ve been a fan of Jack since Project Runway, and like a fine wine he just gets better with age

  2. Jackie, you better lay off the Botox and fillers and face lifts – u are starting to look like a cross between Amanda Lepore and the plastic surgery addict whose goal was to look like a Ken doll
