    Hi RambleRed Head,
    I’ve been catching up on your interviews and just wanted to tell you that I’ve enjoyed them immensely. The interview with Mike Hipp was terrific. He seems like a down to earth, really special man. I like his constitution. I wish him the very best with his business, his website and his love, and will mosey over to his website and make a purchase. Thank you, RambleRed head for these captivating, wonderful interviews that shed light on other peoples journeys. My best friend came out fearfully 4 years ago and it’s been a wonderful, lonely, enlightening, terrifiying and ultimately, freeing experience for him. What an truly important thing you are doing. Thank you.

    What a great interview. I am suprised how much of Chad’s early work I have seen.

    I’ve had a crush on Chad Allen since he was on St. Elsewhere and we both had bangs… The crush grew into respect after an interview in the Advocate a few years ago when he discussed his spirituality. Loved hearing more about him in his own words.

    I’ve always admired Chad Allen as an actor, and as a person. We seem to have some similar beliefs, and it’s nice to know that at least one more gay man is helping to chip away at the erroneous thought that a person cannot be both gay and Christian.

    Chad does seem to have his mind in the right place, and that alone will guarantee that he has a long career. Now, mainstream Hollywood needs to catch up to the times and give this guy a leading role worthy of his talent!

    I think I must be a bad gay! I didn’t know who Chad was either! In my defense, I didn’t get my first television until 9 years ago, and even then I only got it to watch the news!

    Great interview Tom. I agree with what Mike said up above about the change of format…the “question(s) from the audience”, nice touch.

    I appreciated what Chad had to say about the many christians he knew that were growing tired of other christians (presumably the “fun and mentalist”) using their christ as the dividing line between church and gays. I know I paraphrased that, but…that’s just what I do.

    I also chuckled when he was talking about his new film (and yes, I realize I’m late!), “Save Me” and in his discription he says, deadpan and almost bored, “and I find myself falling in love with Robert Gant…”. As if “falling in love with Robert Gant would be a BAD thing! HA! How can I get THAT film roll!

    Great interview. I’ll make an effort to check out some of his older stuff.
