Mike Ruiz

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.

by Anonymousreply 110/12/2010

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.

Star fucker.

He is Canadian from a Montreal suburb%0D %0D He comes from a pretty messed up family with an alcoholic father that used to beat him.%0D %0D Has had mental and substance issues..

by Anonymousreply 610/12/2010

He's from Montreal?%0D %0D That's basically a guarantee of social deviance.

by Anonymousreply 710/12/2010

He looks pretty good for 52.

by Anonymousreply 810/12/2010

Has been described as a pig bottom in the NY pnp scene.

by Anonymousreply 910/13/2010

Exactly how tall is he? Does he have a boyfriend?

by Anonymousreply 1010/13/2010

What name did he use when he posed for Playgirl?

by Anonymousreply 1110/13/2010

Alta Gracia Ruiz.

Mike "the human toilet" Ruiz is a mess.

MASSIVE close-up!

by Anonymousreply 1410/13/2010

He's on the cover of Gloss, so he must be important!

by Anonymousreply 1510/13/2010

Huge party bottom, his hole has been known to swallow many and arm or foot.

Where are the nudies?

by Anonymousreply 1710/15/2010

Too unmotivated to further search, but it appears that he was Playgirl's Man of The Year in '91. Didn't know that.

by Anonymousreply 1810/15/2010

He wasn't Man of the Year.

by Anonymousreply 1910/15/2010

Usually, MOTY is on the cover. My error.

by Anonymousreply 2010/15/2010

Sure takes some beautiful photos, the ones of Venessa Willims are just stunning, but the he had a great subject.

by Anonymousreply 2110/15/2010

Does Blackdogue have Playgirl photos of young Mike Ruiz? And, if so, under what name?

by Anonymousreply 2210/20/2010

Poor Mike must be mortified by now.

by Anonymousreply 2310/20/2010

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.

by Anonymousreply 2410/20/2010

Nice guy. Has dated some closeted Hollywood stars.

by Anonymousreply 2510/20/2010

He's one sexy big brother.

by Anonymousreply 2610/20/2010

Great artist; great personality. Grounded; humorous.

He's the only one on that A-LIST show I could stand to hang out with.

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.

by Anonymousreply 2910/20/2010

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.

by Anonymousreply 3010/20/2010

Unrepentant famewhore. I'm tired of seeing him on RuPaul's Drag Race and that HIV testing PSA they run non-stop on Logo.

by Anonymousreply 3111/17/2012

Who has he dated?

by Anonymousreply 3211/17/2012

He's poz tinymeat, right?

by Anonymousreply 3311/17/2012

Wow, who decided to bump this?

by Anonymousreply 3411/17/2012

Nice guy. Age 54. Has live in BF.

by Anonymousreply 3511/18/2012

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?

by Anonymousreply 3611/18/2012

That PSA always annoys me: "I had a friend who died of AIDS..." One friend?!

by Anonymousreply 3711/18/2012

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

by Anonymousreply 3811/18/2012

Here is his February 1991 cover. Can't find any pics, though.

Little help?

by Anonymousreply 3910/17/2013

LOL @ the article on the cover: Are you too "fat" for sex?

by Anonymousreply 4010/17/2013

I think he is vulgar arriviste trash.

I agree with R41

by Anonymousreply 4310/17/2013

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

by Anonymousreply 4410/17/2013

Really? He's naked on the cover

by Anonymousreply 4510/17/2013

[italic]Coverguy Rafael Sant 'Angelo (Nude inside and also appears as the centerfold) photographed by Carol Weinberg[/italic]

So it appears he posed as Rafael Sant'Angelo

by Anonymousreply 4610/17/2013

He looks [italic]a lot[/italic] like a gay porn actor named Domino from the 80s on that cover.


by Anonymousreply 4710/18/2013

Bump for any pics of him nude!

by Anonymousreply 4810/23/2013

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?

by Anonymousreply 4910/23/2013

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?

by Anonymousreply 5110/23/2013

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?

by Anonymousreply 5210/23/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 5310/23/2013

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

I miss the A-List. What happened to all those queens?

Give it a rest, Austin. No one wants you back.

by Anonymousreply 5610/23/2013

When he talks - 0 purses fall out of his mouth. The only episode where he didn't - the episode when his father visited. The queeny voice disappeared.
