Netflix recently dropped the documentary Circus of Books on its platform.

The series focuses on Jewish couple Barry and Karen Mason, the owners of a gay porn bookstore, who share how they got into that kind of business.

The store became a hub for the gay community in LA and the Netflix show sheds light on the history, culture and importance of the place in the ’80s.

Circus of Books features Barry and Karen’s children – Rachel, Josh and Micah. So, let’s meet Josh Mason on Instagram and get to know the Netflix star better!

Josh revealed that it hasn’t been easy to come out because of the religion and traditions of his family. Drawing on past experience, Josh candidly shared his emotional journey and how his family accepted him for who he is.
