Writer's Block: Close Encounters of the Celebrity Kind

Have you ever met a celebrity in real life? Who was it and how did your paths cross?

I met Wilson Cruz who played Ricky on the TV show My So Called Life in the 90's.

He is now often seen on the gay TV channel Logo and in gay movies. He played a bisexual teenager who wore make-up on My So Called Life. He was the first gay teen full time character on TV. I met him at a gay pride parade. I was there with my high school. My high school was the first high school to ever march in Boston's Gay Pride Parade. I remember i talked to Wilson for about 45 minutes about the march, my high school, and of course My So Called Life which was my favorite TV show back then. It's actually still one of my all time favorite shows. It was such a disapointment that it was only on for 1 season. I remember that the show got a lot of slack for being too grown up for it's teen audience, and parents all over the place were banning their kids from watching the show. That left the show with fewer viewers and most people didn't get into the show until it was cancelled and the reruns were on MTV.

Anyway, i'm glad i met Wilson Cruz. He was rteally cool and the perfect celebrety for me to meet.
