as Officer Jon Baker on "CHiPs."
It was the late 70's, and I was around 7-years old when
I first became mesmerized by his feathered blonde hair and snug-fitting uniform pants.
While most people were in love with his partner Ponch (Erik Estrada), I just couldn't get enough of Jon.
In middle school, "CHiPs" was cancelled. But luckily, every afternoon they ran double
re-runs I could not miss!
Watching them while doing my homework, and drooling over Jon, was my daily routine. And I absolutely hated the seasons after Larry Wilcox left the show.
So by the time I was 12, that obsession pretty
much erased any doubt that I was gay.
