Paul Lekakis: No More Invitations to his Room
Boom boom boom
Let's go back to my room
So we can do it all night
And you can make me feel right
It was the debut song of 21-year old Paul Lekakis, a Greek-American physique model turned singer. And "openly" gay, quite a courageous act in the 1980s.
During the next few years, he released several singles and an album. Usually his lyrics dropped pronouns, and when they were specific, they were homoerotic.
In 1997, he joined a 12-Step Program, stopped using drugs and hustling, and began recording again. He also became an actor, mostly in roles that allowed him to display his still-impressive physique: Circuit (2001), about the sex-and-drugs-infused circuit parties of the gay 1990s; Just Can't Get Enough (2002), about the rise of the Chippendales Dancers; the gay Halloween thriller Hellbent (2004).
He wrote and directed the short film Don't Tell, Don't Ask, which made the gay film festival circuit in 2006.
on itunes. But tonight it will just be dancing. There will be no invitations to his room until you've dated for awhile.
