The death of a young gay man has many in Atlanta asking questions of the adult entertainment business.

Mehran "Ron" Chestnut, 25, of Douglasville, Ga., was pronounced dead by the Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office on Sept. 4. Chestnut appeared in scenes for several adult film studios, most notably Raging Stallion and Next Door Ebony, and was known to work as a stripper and entertainer for Atlanta based clubs, sources say.

On Facebook, Chestnut identified as "Kb Love" and his passing generated an outpouring of emotional online comments and tributes. On the website Project Q, commentator Reggie Dunbar II wrote, "We (the community at large) must train, educate and guide our younger citizens into real and less challenging employment and businesses so that they can care for themselves as all humans should."

An Atlanta Police report states Chestnut was found unconscious inside a hotel room at the Hyatt Midtown. According to the incident report, he was unresponsive and clinging to a bottle of Black Max poppers.

Chestnut, allegedly, met another man at the hotel through a mobile gay "hookup" app. The Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office is waiting a toxicology report to determine the cause of death.

Ebony World Media, an Atlanta based adult entertainment company, posted the following condolences to Chestnut's Facebook page:

SAD NEWS: Our hearts go out to the friends and family of Kb Love with this tragic news of his passing from this world to the next. In the world of exotic dance and adult entertainment, there are many people with huge egos and attitudes that are often outsized and unwarranted. But KB never once exhibited any of those things. Yes, he was gorgeous to look at, but his soul was — is — kind, easy going and genuine. For projects, he professional and courteous on set and off and a genuine pleasure to work with. We will miss him and our deepest sympathies and condolences go out to all who cared for and loved him. — J. Bernard Jones aka

Chestnut gained a following outside of the adult business for his role in a 2013 documentary "Tha Life Atlanta" which revealed his story of battling homelessness and poverty on the streets of Georgia's capital city.
