Larry Gomez from California , popularly called ‘’Wolf Man’’ because 98% of his body , including his face , is covered with thick , black hair.
Initially, Larry received a lot of humiliation and persecution from people, , because his body is almost covered with hair but today proudly claims the title of ‘’world’s hairiest man.;;
Gomez was born with congenital generalized hypertrichosis, a rare genetic condition that affects less than 100 people globally, including many members of his family.
As it would be expected, with this rare posture, intimidating youngsters tormented Mr. Gomez, whose real name is Victor.
Victor, during his school days was isolated because of his strange and odd appearance.
However, after earning a reputation for himself in Hollywood, he has finally learnt to accept his peculiarity and is now known as the world’s hairiest guy.
Mr. Gomez ‘s boosted confidence has also paid dividends as he has found the love of his life , and recently got married to Alicia Martinez , whom he met when searching for an accommodation in 2011.
Gomez hopes to share his experiences to inspire people to feel secure and proud of their own skin by encouraging them to look beyond appearances and get to know the person behind.
Travis Hoefle , who operated the YouTube Channel ‘Wizard of Odd TV’, went out from Chicago to meet with the renowned ‘Wolf Man’.
