DENNIS POSA
10|28|1946 - 1|28|1985

Before releasing his first and only excellent disco album - DENNIS PARKER was best known for his career in adult films (under the name WADE NICHOLS). He appeared in quite a few of them, But not always acknowledged as part of the cast. Most of the films were straight in nature although he also appeared in the gay release BOY-NAPPED.

Just as he was really making a name for himself - after releasing his album and appearing on the TV soap opera THE EDGE OF NIGHT [as Police Chief Derek Mallory],  his life ended too soon [at the age of 38] - due to complications from Aids.

MANY THANKS TO THE INVALUABLE ASSISTANCE OF THE RIALTO REPORT AND MY FRIEND JOHN KULP!

There is no evidence that Wade starred in any film with Bruno, it is thought that this photo was used for publicity purposes. Although it is possible Wade made other gay films, the only one known is BOY-NAPPED.
