My first gay crush was super hot actor Mike Henry.
He was an ex-football star who ended up playing Tarzan in three 1960’s movies.
In the early 70's, at around age 10, a friend of mine showed me a movie magazine about Tarzan films and there was a photo spread on Mike Henry.
The man was all muscles and chest hair and chiseled features.
And I felt something tingling inside me.
I found him very, very attractive.
I talked my friend into giving me that magazine, which I kept for years. No one knew about my crush because homophobia was at its zenith back then.
But I never forgot about Mike Henry.
“Body by Michelangelo” was his catchphrase.
Which was a pretty good description!
