Terry Ray - Ensemble
would like to mention that he is a multi-award winning actor and writer as none of that may be evident by anything you see from him tonight. He is also the co-creator of the GAYDAR GUN toy (available at www.GaydarGun.com or Terry’s car trunk after the show). If you’re unfamiliar, the Gaydar Gun, with each of its 650 different pulls of the trigger, attempts to show us that everyone’s sexuality can be a little bit whacky, but most importantly everyone’s sexuality is A-OK! After all, it’s just like Billie Jean says, “Fair Is Fair!”
