My late spouse, Al, was a superhero fan and collected action figures all his life. For years, I pondered how to photography these powerful effigies with whom we shared our home. A friend came for dinner and mentioned the “Gay Billy” dolls from the 1990s. “I have them!” volunteered my spouse. “I want to photograph them!” I retorted. We took Billy, a white boy, and his Puerto Rican boyfriend, Carlos, on our honeymoon to Palm Springs and Joshua Tree. With Al as wrangler, I shot away and liked the results. So began a collection of 1:6 scale figures, props and photographs thereof. The initial subject matter concerned the shame that gay boys grow up with and that distorts their adult lives. I used the dolls to work out my anger over Trump. When Al died, my subject turned to dealing with my grief over his loss.
