2 Remarks

  1. Happy Birthday Wilson

  2. I personally don’t think Wilson Cruz gets enough credit for breaking boundaries long before others did. I loved every episode of My So-Called Life, but what I always remember (and probably wrongly, LOL) is when a female class member had a crush on him and he thought maybe he could be straight. Straight people will never realize how much of the anti-gay hatred is not just a constant but is internalized, much in the same way I imagine people who aren’t black (I’m not) will never know how relentless racist ugliness can be and is. When Rickie thought for a brief moment that his life could be so much easier, it broke my heart, because I’ve been there too. I think a lot of gay guys and women have. When people talk bs about choices and lifestyles, it infuriates me. Why would anyone choose to be rejected, humiliated, shamed and demonized if there was another option? That makes no sense at all.

    Wilson Cruz (or more honestly, Rickie) showed me that there were others who felt like me, struggling to accept and celebrate our own beauty and strength while still wondering what it would be like to have been granted the far easier path in life.

    It makes me very glad that he is still so successful now, and he has been a gay champion for decades now. Much power to you. I wish you all the best, now and forever. :-)
