In the late 1940's ,my MOTHERE took me to "ICELAND"in PARAMOUNT.. This world famous RINK was oned and operated by the ZAMBONI FAMILY,...Year after year i gradually became aquainted with many of the young skaters (i was in my pre-teen year's in late 40's)
One day I skated to a FANTASTIC SKATER 'RHODI MICHAELSON" for a breif moment I thought she was going to KILL ME ... iInstead she used a WORD CONTAINING 4 letters beginning with an"F"........ At that moment i fell madly for RHODI..... Being GAY in was only a BRO SIS relationship She was amazing...Later I became aware of the most ELEGANT MAN I had ever seen....... his name was "BILL KIPP"...... Bill could make a simple WALTZ JUMP LOOK AS THOUGH HE WAS FLYING...... He was also the first MAN I ever saw in a FUR COAT.........His FRIEND was a great looking GUY named J.J.Bejack,( not sure of correct spelling)
I was also to meet a great skater named ROGER CAMPBELL......... there was also ,the most ELEGANT LITTLE GIRL ,,, PEGGY FLEMMING..........
The years I spent at "ICELAND" were the most GLORIOUS of years
Then came 1961 when suddenly the news said that the INTIRE US OLYMPIC TEAM WAS KILLED,,,,,,,,, When I soon realized that so many of my great friends at ICELAND were on that plane....To say that iI was devastated in an understatement of BIBLICAL PERPORTIONS >>>
Bill Kipp was my part time COACH as well as JOANNI ZAMBONI, I was 23 at the time soon met my PARTNER ,.We went skating for a while but it simply was not the same..
I soon became a GAY ACTIVIST...(see my name on google or yahoo).and hng up my BLADES
