In the terrific & engaging 1980s TV series- St Elsewhere, one of the main characters has a young son who was autistic. In the series finale- The Last One, it is revealed that all the storylines occurred inside the head of the young autistic boy. That boy was played by Chad Allen Lazarri. As a child actor, Allen went on to work on TV series- Our House, My Two Dads, & Dr. Quinn- Medicine Woman, none of which I have ever seen, although My Two Dads is a title that might work well for my porn debut.
In 1996, at age 21, Allen was outed in The Globe which published photos (sold to the paper by his then boyfriend) of him kissing another man, in a hot tub at a party . Since that time he has been a leading & outspoken advocate of gay rights.
Since 2005's Third Man Out, Allen portrays lead character Donald Strachey, a gay private detective in a partnered relationship, in a series of TV movies based on novels by Richard Stevenson.
Allen is in a 4 year relationship with actor Jeremy Glazer, who he met on the set of Save Me. Allen is the best friend of one of my most favorite bloggers, the delicious Philip of the fabulous Felix In Hollywood. Check out his little spot on the Internet & when you are in LA, take his tour. Felix Knows his Hollywood History! Allen turns 37 years old today. I admire his talent, activism & good looks.
