It’s a story that was first reported by UK tabloid the Daily Star — one of the members of The Household Cavalry on duty during the Royal Wedding was Dan Broughton.

On the day of the wedding, The Household Cavalry provided the escort for the carriage of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as they toured Windsor following the ceremony.

Dan Broughton won Mr Gay UK in 2007, and went on to appear in gay porn productions with a number of studios.

What’s interesting about this story is that it wasn’t a story. Even the Daily Star couldn’t find much to get outraged about — a gay guy did his job, and that gay guy has done some porn which everyone already knows about. Of the two billion people who watched the event, it’s hard to find anyone that cares that Dan Broughton was there, doing his job as a member of The Household Cavalry.

Porn director Michael Lucas describes phenomenon as ‘the pornalisation of society’ — porn is now such a commonplace part of our everyday lives that it doesn’t shock us or embarrass us. In a world where everyone is sending each other naked selfies and filming themselves having sex, we’re all porn stars to some degree.

Dan Broughton looks great in his uniform, and he looks great out of his uniform. He’s setting a great example of how to live honestly and authentically in a world where you always need to bring your A-game.
