What he thought was going be a lustful night turned into the night that sent him to the hospital for several days. Ruby Rims has always been true to who he was, but it came with a painful price. At a time when being gay or dressed in drag was extremely dissident, Ruby knew it was his calling. Ruby was once lured to a room (under false pretenses) and beaten. He  spent five days in a hospital, all because he was gay. Listen in as Ruby recounts his struggles of growing up gay in the 70’s and how doing drag changed his life and gave him solace.
