Greg In Hollywood meets Greg Rikaart!
I must’ve gotten the worst stacked parking spot in all of the Ford Ampitheatre last night – all the way up a hill and in a back corner.
So I arrived at the Outfest closing night movie last night pre-occupied with thoughts of: “How the heck am I going to ever get out of there?”
Then, I saw him.
He’s Greg Rikaart, a star of the CBS soap The Young and the Restless who decided to come out via Twitter the day after the Supreme Court’s rulings on DOMA and Prop. 8.
I had just gotten home from the West Hollywood rally and celebrations when his tweet came across my feed and must have been the first to post about it.
Greg, who I had met briefly on the red carpet of the Emmys about four years ago, said he had seen the piece and thanked me for the respectful tone.
I let him know that I’d love to do a follow-up interview when and if he wants to and we posed for a photo together. When Greg reviewed it on my camera, he decided we’d look better of we switched sides.
So we did!
Greg is on the left in his preferred pose but I’m sharing both with you here because I think he looks utterly handsome in both!
