The thing about Richard Simmons is that his freak, trumps his gay , which in turns makes him more acceptable by the popular majority. Growing up I saw public figures like him and Boy George , but didn’t know how to categorize them in my mind. There were, queers, jocks, actors,musicians but I didn’t know what Mr Simmons was, really. He wears negative length shorts, nude tights and a picked out white mans afro. I was afraid to be caught watching him in fear that I would be busted, of what I don’t know. I have to admit something to you, I LIKE RICHARD SIMMONS. He’s funny, outrageous and doing his own thing ( I applaud) . Growing out of my peculiar somewhat homephobic views on flaming queens, I accept Richard in all his lady like glory. Keep on keepin’ on Mr Simmons
