While I’m at it regarding posting old photos, here is one that I believe has heretofore never seen the light of day. After shooting the roll back in 1998 I never did anything with it other than to make a contact sheet.
However, now – with a functioning negative scanner and with the tenth anniversary of his death having passed by a week or so ago, I give you…
a clothed Naked Civil Servant – Quentin Crisp at Stages Repertory Theatre in Houston, December 1998.
I have to admit that I feel a bit odd lauding the guy in any way. Yes, he was a long-standing personage in LGBT circles but there’s no way around the fact that some of the stuff he said that night was downright racist (one particular remark about Princess Diana and “Arabs” sticks out.)
Having said that, I do still enjoy his performance in Orlando.
