For nearly three years, Olympic diving champion Greg Louganis opened his home and memory bank to documentarians interested in introducing a new generation of sports and movie fans to his story.
That investment of time and energy paid off with “Back on Board: Greg Louganis,” which was screened this week as one of the Palm Springs International Film Festival’s Gay!La events.
Louganis and his husband, Johnny Chaillot-Louganis, attended the gala screening.
Greg said, “Back in December 2010, I was kind of talking about how I was coming back into the sport of diving.

It all began with a doodle by Alan Hamel, manager husband of the incomparable Suzanne Somers … and a force-to-be-reckoned-with on his own merits as a long-time actor/entertainer/TV host/producer.
The Palm Springs Power Couple were only too eager to continue doodling while helping to push the idea to their celebrity friends, as a way to benefit Desert AIDS Project … and so the newest fun event in the desert was born.
This year, those joining us for “the ultimate cocktail party” will see doodles by Pam Ann, Susan Anton, Taylor Dayne, Bill Feingold – with another of his now-famous “Doodled Noodles” – Sam Harris, Jack Jones, Leslie Jordan, Ruta Lee, Bob Mackie, Barry Manilow, Kylie Minogue, Rosie O’Donnell, Marie Osmond, Dr. Phil, Del Shores, Lily Tomlin, Vanessa Williams, a Yankee Doodle – and of course, Somers and Hamel.
Many of these celebrities – and some surprises– will be on-hand, possibly to encourage bidding on their particular doodles. After all, who knows who might be receiving a Doodle Master Award in the future? Somers and Hamel have already set a high bar for talented encouragement.
Presenting this very first Doodle Master Award will be long-time friend to Suzanne Somers who is currently hosting the syndicated daily TV news show America Now, after building her career as an Emmy-winning journalist on programs like Entertainment Tonight and the self-titled Leeza. Also a New York Times best-selling author and social entrepreneur, Leeza’s hands-on advocacy resulted in her creation of Leeza’s Place and Leeza’s Care Connection, offering free support services for family caregivers.
