Born 1967 in Oklahoma City, OK
Thom Collins was featured as the supposedly heterosexual fantasy of millions, the Man of the Month for Playgirl, January 1991. By 1995 Collins had been HIV+ for 11 years, was openly gay, started his own foundation in his home city and had even a role in the tongue-in-cheek mokumentary by Dirk Sharfer, Man of The Year (1995). He became even more well known when he was interviewed by the still running, and very relevant, publication POZ magazine.
