I was 8 years old when I first saw him, as "Rock" from the film "But I'm A Cheerleader," which also featured RuPaul.
Although the film came out in 1999, I didn't see it until 2003.
And I swear I watched it at least twice a day, every day, for 2 and a half months!
And I specifically anticipated seeing him in the football scene.
It's where "Rock" seduces some of the boys at the
"True Directions" homosexuality rehab camp, by stroking a rather phallic rake and wearing a sweaty wife-beater tank-top and very tight denim shorts.
And I have never looked at my gardener quite the same since then. Coincidentally, two years ago I dated a boy for a few months who was called Eddie Serbian, and he worked alongside his father as a gardener/pool boy.
I asked my parents to hire them - which was before I came out to them and told them that we were dating!
