Winning a car on The Price is Right in 1980

by | Mar 6, 2010 | Anita Mann and Acting Gigs, Family and Friends, Gay Life, My Fabulous Disease | 1 comment

I was a 19 year old gay man on vacation with my boyfriend Charlie (that’s him in the audience in the matching outfit), and Bob Barker asks, “Do you have a girlfriend?” It’s 1980, people, so don’t expect me to have come screaming out of the closet on national television. The experience is used as a narrative device in the prologue of my book “A Place Like This,” about my life in 1980’s Los Angeles and the dawn of HIV/AIDS.
