“NO, I Was NOT Born Gay” Book Written By My Fabulous Friend, Jay L. Hudson
I met Jay in 1986 at the “Wharf Theater” in Monterey, California. He was a ‘flaming queen.’ At any rate, I instantly loved Jay-He was a class act & dressed immaculate…Possessed beautiful, big, white, teeth -black hair and the most gorgeous, deep, blue eyes, a drop dead gorgeous physique… Jay can sing like you can’t believe & is an extremely talented individual.
When I met Jay, we were instantly connected. Our spirits were kindred. Jay had an open heart as did I. I can remember to this day, walking down the wharf after a production: He, in his long, black, leather trench and a leather black fedora and me in my black/gold lace pants with a gold sequin cap…What a pair 😉 I remember asking Jay, straight up: “Are you a fag?” (That was how I talked because I have always been a blunt individual) Jay, sadly said “Yes.” “What a shame,” I replied… Then, I said: “Well, whatever, I really like you and I believe in 2 years time, we’ll meet again and everything will be different.” We walked back to the theater, gave each other a hug goodbye.
2 years, we DID meet again at the Hartnell College in Salinas, California. Jay was so sad. I asked what was wrong and he just said “I don’t know, just in a turning point and don’t know where I am going.” A few months later, we were at an audition for the musical, rock opera “Tommy.” Jay landed the part of Tommy’s father and I landed the part of the Acid queen. Jay was different this time: He had a light in his eyes. I asked him what it was that was in his eyes, “He said JESUS!” ‘Jesus?’ I said… I was thinking, what the hell is so special about Jay A GAY that this Jeeeesssssus cared about and didn’t care for me… I was jealous. 😉
At any rate: Jay had become a Christian & left the gay life-style, completely. He married a beautiful woman (I will call her Lara) and they had a beautiful son. Jay was diagnosed with AIDS in 1994-95 and has been living with AIDS for 20 years. Jay’s life is an amazing testimony of how GOD can change things. Please read my wonderful friend, Jay’s book.
