On Earth I Was Briefly Gorgeous

Yes that’s yours truly trying to be, avant-garde, creative, cosmic, or truth be told who knows what?

This is from way back in 1979. My rent was $105 a month. Myself and everybody I knew was on unemployment, and had plenty of time to do stuff like this.

I found that shiny plastic slinky toy thing around my neck at that old thrift store downtown. It was an old brick building that would have crumbled in the 89 quake. It was razed long ago to make way for that rolled up newspaper looking hi-rise at the base of California and market.

My dear friend Rick Maverick, who was a theater queen, cut the designs in my head and helped with my makeup. I must have been about 20 at the time, and wanted to be David Bowie.

Vintage Gay SF — Who Is He?

This image is from a gay pride parade around 1989 or 90. It’s one of dozens under consideration for two photo exhibits this summer, at the Harvey Milk Center in June, and at STRUT SF this July.

Intimidating at first, this tattood hunk of muscle was quite sweet in the end. He took my card but I never heard from him. Several collectors have suggested that he’s made a few adult films.

Waddaya think? Hot or not? Your type? Should I put his picture in the show? Know who he is, and where I could contact him these days?
