Cleveland, OH (1965)
As a kid, I was always into performing. Acting, playing piano, pretending. I just remember always loving the spotlight! All through high school and college, I was very involved in theater, choir, and any other music related activities.
I think I felt different around age 12 but I didn’t know why. All through school (Catholic grade school, high school, AND college), I just felt strange and didn’t know why.
It wasn’t until age 22 that I realized I was gay, and not until age 25 that I accepted it.
I LOVE this picture and often refer to it as my first head shot!
