on the animated TV show "Rainbow Brite."
I was about 4-years-old when the show premiered in 1984.
And I was enamored by the cute, athletic guy, who was dressed from head to toe in MY favorite color - BLUE! I mean, what's NOT to love?
To this day, I am still baffled that my parents were actually so surprised that I was gay.
I had all of the "Rainbow Brite" toys and even (great gay gasp) "Rainbow Brite" curtains!
I'm also baffled why Buddy Blue never had the courage to ask Red Butler to ride the rainbow with him...
