Tyson Beckford Says Black & White Strip Clubs 'Are Totally  Different'

Tyson Beckford is handsome on the cover of HIV Plus Magazine‘s January/February 2015 issue, out on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 44-year-old model and actor had to share with the mag:

On whether he’s lost a loved one to HIV: “Oh, yeah. I lost my cousin. She was a nurse. She was taking care of someone with HIV, and as they were cleaning up the sheets she got pricked by a needle. That was it for her. It was very rapid – within six months.”

On the comparison of his upcoming film, Chocolate City, to Magic Mike: “I hate when people use that reference, because it’s totally about a different kind of experience. Black strip clubs and white strip clubs are totally different. There’s more performance, more energy in a black strip club than there is a white one because the bodies are a little bit more ripped, and the girls have bigger, you know, it’s more so about the butt in black strip clubs than it is about the top, for women. It’s about how big they are down there: how they shake, how they move, how they gyrate. It’s a different experience. I don’t want to say it’s more rhythm-driven, but it is a little bit more rhythm-driven. There’s a lot more acrobatic stuff in a black strip club…. They allow you more to touch in black strip clubs than you are allowed in white strip clubs.”

On his gay fans: “They’ve been very supportive of everything that I do, because they know that I support them. So they definitely supported me all the way through fashion. We brought in some gays and lesbians into the filming of Chocolate City because strip clubs have all different audiences. They don’t separate. We allow everyone to come to strip clubs, so that was very important that we had a table full of guys, a table full of girls. We wanted to show equality when we were making that movie. If you go into these clubs, you see all different kinds of people. It’s not just for women. It’s not just for men.”

    Why aren’t you marring those black women if they’re so great? Instead you marry white women because black men hate being black.
