He was a model in the early 90s, stunningly beautiful, posed in Playgirl (cover below). Now he looks like a Billy Doll come to life. I have heard he''s poz.\
As far as being a "celebrity photographer", almost all his editorials and covers have been for little-known foreign magazines.
He''s on the cover of Gloss, so he must be important!
Vapid San Francisco ''mo.
Huge party bottom, his hole has been known to swallow many and arm or foot.
Where are the nudies?
Too unmotivated to further search, but it appears that he was Playgirl''s Man of The Year in ''91. Didn''t know that.
He wasn''t Man of the Year.
Usually, MOTY is on the cover. My error.
Sure takes some beautiful photos, the ones of Venessa Willims are just stunning, but the he had a great subject.
Does Blackdogue have Playgirl photos of young Mike Ruiz? And, if so, under what name?
Poor Mike must be mortified by now.
Back in the day, I bought the christmas card he posed naked in a manger setting. Very hot at the time. Doesn''t look bad for his age. I guess fisting doesn''t have to ruin one''s body.
Nice guy. Has dated some closeted Hollywood stars.
He''s one sexy big brother.
Great artist; great personality. Grounded; humorous.\
He''s the only one on that A-LIST show I could stand to hang out with.
She''s 60 if she''s a day.
So . . . when are Mike and Roidney gonna start fucking? I wouldn''t mind being a fly on the wall to see those two hot Latinos get it on.
Judging from the bio on his own site he''s deeply, madly in love with himself.%0D\
His photography is really uninspired. He''s just borrowing other photographer''s ideas and concepts and recycling them...poorly. There''s no creativity there at all, and his execution is really bland.
Unrepentant famewhore. I'm tired of seeing him on RuPaul's Drag Race and that HIV testing PSA they run non-stop on Logo.
Who has he dated?
He's poz tinymeat, right?
Wow, who decided to bump this?
Nice guy. Age 54. Has live in BF.
Whoa he's 54? He looks amazing! I thought he was 45 at most. He really preserved himself well, whatever he's doing. Is he really poz though or some here are just making shit up?
That PSA always annoys me: "I had a friend who died of AIDS..." One friend?!
Blackdogue has a lot of 1991 models posted, but no Mike. I wonder if Ruiz asked him not to post his spread.
Here is his February 1991 cover. Can't find any pics, though.
any more pics of his modeling days? Also which "closeted stars" was he rumored to date?
Is he really poz or someone here just hates him and made it up?
r49, I believe both he and his partner are quietly poz. I've seen them walking around Chelsea and the partner has the "look" of someone who has been living with HIV for a while. I know it's not PC to say, but we all know the look.
And if half of what I've heard about Ruiz is true, there's no way he escaped living in NYC in the 90's as hot as he is without getting it.

What does being hot have to do with one's ability to operate a condom?
This jerk followed me on twitter after I followed Rupaul, and then unfollowed me a few days later because I didn't reciprocate. You know he's just following Ru's followers because he thinks it'll help drum up business. Why the fuck would anyone want to follow him just because they like Ru's show?
I *think* that was the year that they suspended nudes in Playgirl. His layout doesn't even have an ass shot, yet he was the centerfold? No wonder I never heard of him.
