Ricky Starr, Wrestler

1950s Wrestling heel Ricki Starr used gay camp as his shtick… Bob considers him the first openly gay wrestler even though in real life he was married to a woman. In 1959 he was the most visible example of gayness in America — and he likes to kick nazi butt!

Ricki had been a dancer and could mix classical ballet moves into his wrestling.
