Biography

American publisher and founder of a porno magazine, Hustler, in 1973. He also founded Busty Beauties and Barely Legal, all of which featured models with frontal nudity and genital shots. Flynt is a nightmare version of the American dream come true, the epitome of vulgarity and lack of principles, white trash with money. An unabashed redneck and deep-fried hillbilly, he was a high school dropout. Flynt ran go-go clubs, and in the mid-'60s, began publishing a two page newsletter, Hustler. After three prior marriages and four kids, he and his fourth wife, Althea, a former go-go dancer, pursued their bawdy dreams and built up a publishing empire worth millions. They lived a lifestyle of drugs, sex and dissipation. He once confessed to having sex with a chicken, along with many other obscene adventures and bar fights.

On 3/20/1978, Flynt was shot by a sniper and paralyzed from the waist down. He became a "born again" Christian through religious mentor Ruth Carter Stapleton in 1977, until he fell by the wayside of sin as a backslider. He has lived a bitter life in a gold-plated wheel chair in an eight-bedroom mansion in Hollywood. Althea died on 6/27/1987; she was found in the bathtub and had AIDS.

A major film release "The People vs. Larry Flynt," 1996, told his story. Flynt's autobiography was published in 12/1996, "An Unseemly Man"

On 6/20/1998, he married his longtime companion and former nurse, Elizabeth Beeios, 38, from his wheelchair. It was his fifth marriage and her first. Of his three daughters, Tonya Flynt-Vega traveled the country speaking out against pornography in the late '90s, claiming that her dad sexually abused her from the time she was 9 to 18.

On August 8, 2003, the self-proclaimed "smut peddler" threw his hat in the ring of the California gubernatorial race.
