Bartender Profile: Frank August Fanucchi
By Out.com Editors
My name is Frank August Fanucchi, and I am Irish, Italian, and Native American. I was born and raised in the beautiful valley of Sonoma, California, but have lived all over northern & southern California. I am 27 years old, living in San Francisco and currently working as an Esthetician by day in the Castro districts Hand Job Nails & Spa, where I am also the cover model for our Hand Job clothing. By night I am a bartender at the one-and-only house music after hour’s club, The End Up. Also by night I am a Go-Go dancer / backup dancer. You can find me at the Spa Thursdays and Saturdays, at the End Up Saturday nights and Sunday days, and Go-Go dancing Thursdays at The Monster Show, a local Drag Show thrown every week by Cookie Dough, with DJ MC2 spinning at The Edge (with a limited engagement at The Midnight Sun). You can periodically find me Go-Going all over the city (and the US) at other parties such as Boy Bar, Sunday Funday, 80’s Remixed, Pulse, and Sugar, at The Café in Castro, Pledge and Stallion at Rebel in Hayes Valley, Booty Call Wednesdays at Q Bar in Castro, The Crib in Soma, Zona Rosa at The Grand, and many more.
My good friend and colleague, Bebe Sweetbriar, and I have also just started our own party to begin July 19th and every third Thursday of the month from there out, called ‘Porno’ at Beatbox in Soma. The party will feature Porn Star DJ’s, Porn Star Go-Go’s, a Naughty Photo Booth, and porn giveaways, hosted by Bebe and my alter-ego Turk Mason – oh did I mention I am also an International and Award-Winning Adult Entertainer? Haha! Yea that too, gay, straight, and transsexual films, 8 years and counting. Check me out in Bebe’s music videos and my debut acting role alongside her in Amir Jaffer’s Hours (a short film that’s part of the feature Eternal) In addition to all of this, I am a web designer, model, actor, and writer, currently writing my auto-biography, Nakkid Youth, also the title of my personal website www.nakkidyouth.com (NSFW).
Nakkid, is a word I coined years ago. It is a mash-up of the words 'naked' and 'kid'. "Kid", as it is used in slang terminology, as an affectionate description of an individual of any age. Nakkid relates to the freedom, beauty, and undeniable truth of not merely being nude physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well. We ‘re all children in this world, naked, growing, changing, and evolving at every age.
Nakkid is the state of human beings in their truest form. An exclusively human characteristic that encompasses the mind, body, and spirit. A characteristic that we all wish to hang onto for as long as we live – It is true, it is raw, it is beautiful.
Parties I bartend: Kontrol, Popstar, Shangrila, Fever, Sunday Skool, T-Dance, Sunday Sessions, Trend, Electric, The Show, etc.
