Greg’s Celebrity Encounters: Billy Baldwin!
One thing that was so great about ABC’s Dirty Sexy Money series is that Billy Baldwin’s politician character was in an extramartial relationship with a transgender woman played by real-life transgender actress Candys Cane.
The two did a lot of press together and I first met them at the 40th anniversary party for The Advocate but did not have a camera that night. Some months later, at the 2008 GLAAD Media Awards, I did have a camera and my pal Jim Key and I wanted to get our photo with the cutest Baldwin brother. But the first two times, the flash didn’t go off so we gave up. But once we figured it out, we found Billy and he happily posed with us again.
