Growing up Southern, Mormon, and Gay
Twenty-nine-year-old gay actor Jared Allman was born in Wichita Falls, Texas, and grew up in a Mormon family on a 500-acre farm in East Tennessee.
OK, that’s already three strikes against him.
After earning a business degree from Tusculum College, a private Presbyterian-affiliated institution in Greeneville, TN, Jared's first job was in the music business doing merchandising for various touring artists. He later worked for a talent agency in Nashville, then moved on to pursue his passion for acting. He appeared in several country music videos on CMT as well as in a couple of docu-series on the Travel and Disney channels.
Another of Jared's acting projects, a comedy called "Daughter" (2013), is currently in post-production. Jared is collaborating with Riddlehoover on a romantic comedy in pre-production titled "You Could Have Called First" (2014). He will also appear in the sequel to "Scenes from a Gay Marriage," set to be released in 2015.
Jared, who is beyond photogenic, now lives in Lawrenceville, GA, having relocated to the Atlanta area last year. He's also working on a new project, penning his first book, "Kinda Good at Everything: Growing up Southern, Mormon, and Gay."
Stay tuned for future updates about this up-and-coming man of influence. I leave you with another bit of eye candy.
