Gerald (pronounced with a hard 'G') is an award winning film maker and has received international notoriety playing BOBBY DAWSON on the hit show CSI. He has been involved with DIFFERENT since its inception, creating the role of NEAL PARKER in the original workshop revue and consequently playing the role of SONNY BREWER in a following incarnation of the show. He volunteers for both DEMOCRACY NOW! (the leading source for independent news - headed by esteemed journalist Amy Goodman) and Sylvia’s Place (a NYC shelter for homeless LGBT youth). Consequently, he is politically active and is convinced of DIFFERENT’s ability to realize both political and cultural resonance: and to become a beacon for the global gay community.
