Domenick Scudera

In 1977, there was no positive gay imagery in American culture. No movies or television shows had gay characters. "Coming out" was not a thing. I had no idea what homosexuality was. So ... Luke became my boyhood hero, my role model. He was someone who feels different and has a secret, like me.
