When Pat Patterson was 17 years old, he was thrown out of his house after telling his parents he was in love with a man. Back when homophobia was widespread, Pat lived in the super-macho world of pro wrestling. In this fascinating and revealing memoir, revolutionary talent, pioneer, and creative savant Patterson recalls the trials and tribulations of climbing to the upper ranks of sports entertainment - as a performer and, later, as a backstage creative force.
