Larry Claxton Flynt Jr. LFP mainly produces magazines, such as Hustler , and sexually graphic videos. Flynt has fought several high profile legal battles involving the First Amendment , and has unsuccessfully run for public office. He is paralyzed from the waist down due to injuries sustained in a murder attempt by serial killer Joseph Paul Franklin. Due to his father's absence, Flynt was raised solely by his mother and maternal grandmother for the first three years of his life.
Her death here revealed the deep connection the Flynt family has not only to the Miami Valley, but also Central and Southwestern Ohio. She began operating a bar called the Keewee Club in the block of Milburn Aveune. After a stint in the Navy, Larry moved here in and by had taken over operation of the Keewee from his mother. Customers I knew best, of course, were working-class people like myself, especially hillbillies. There were a lot of hillbillies in Dayton, and the Keewee was located in the middle of a neighborhood where all the hicks were living.
