What do we know about this man, his Wiki page doesn't list a date of birth or age. Seems to be everywhere these days. A-list NY. Lots of rumors, but what do we know?

My BF knows him casually - I had dinner with him once. Nice guy and just as attractive in person.

He's a good friend of RuPaul, directed Ru in "Starbooty" and in a couple of music videos, and was a guest judge in "RuPaul's Drag Race."

Here is a link to Mike Ruiz's OWN web site.

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.

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.

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.

Judging from the bio on his own site he's deeply, madly in love with himself.%0D %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.

Blackdogue has a lot of 1991 models posted, but no Mike. I wonder if Ruiz asked him not to post his spread.

I believe he was on the cover of Playgirl, but never actually posed. Hence the fruitless search for images of him.

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.

Are you guys saying he was some loose, sloppy bottom whore? He seems almost conservative and toppish now.
