wilson cruz

Wilson Cruz is a well known and openly gay American actor of Puerto Rican descent, who is best known for his role as Rickie Vasquez in the hit 90’s show “My So Called Life”. When Cruz was 19 years old and came out to his parents, his father immediately kicked him out, which forced him to live in his car for many, many months. This incident had a profound effect on his life, and would encourage him to serve as an advocate for gay youth, especially gay youth of color.

Childhood crush: Scott Baio. Yeah, I said it! Between Happy Days and Charles in Charge I was going to lose my mind! Most regretted fashion choice: All the Cross Colours clothing I wore in the nineties, not to mention the whole hair experience during My So-Called Life. Lord, what I did for love! Who will play you in the film version of your life story? My incredibly talented brother Josh Cruz. He's pretty enough. The perfect song to have sex to: Fire by Lizz Wright My vision of hell is: A world without art.
