QUAINTLY QUEER

The late, great, queer trailblazer, Quentin Crisp offers The Last Word, the third and final installment of his autobiography. Marc Andrews reviews the book and recalls the night he was Quentin’s date.

Quentin Crisp was many things – a homosexual provocateur, a flamboyant dandy, a delicious raconteur, a nude model, a book designer, a film actor – he even dabbled in prostitution in his early years. He was queer before it cool. But it’s for being his own truly fabulous and one-of-a-kind creation that he is best remembered.

Last November saw the publication of the third and final installment of Quentin’s autobiography, which coincided with his passing, 18 years ago on November 21, 1999.

Written with the help of his friend, Phillip Ward who tape-recorded and later transcribed Quentin’s words in the last three years of his life, it follows the first two installments, The Naked Civil Servant and How To Become A Virgin. In the movie versions (both of which are terrific viewing), Quentin was played by Oscar-nominated actor John Hurt who, himself, passed away in January last year.

About DNA Magazine

This month we celebrate the boys who say, “I do!” and all the fun that weddings can be. Ricky and Zak, Ivan and Chris, and Ben and Michael all share their special days with us. Our style guru makes suggestions on buying the suits, we take a trip to a bespoke ring maker, we meet wedding photographers and celebrants, plus we get a bit sexy with the groom’s hot brother! Yes campaigner, Alex Greenwich reveals some of the dirty tricks used by the No side during the postal survey and talks about how he coped with death threats and abuse. In Trouble In Paradise, we reconsider our travel plans – especially to parts of the world that are actively hostile to LGBT travellers. This important feature reveals where not to go and why. Opera singer and pop star Kyle Bielfield talks about the challenges facing creative artists, we revisit Madonna’s Ray Of Light 20 years on, and head back to the theatre for the latest gender-bending production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. We interview Tom Cocquerel about his latest role as Errol Flynn and chat with veteran actor Bruce L Hart about coming out in Hollywood before it was cool. Historically we take a look at the life of the quaintly queer Quentin Crisp as the final instalment of his autobiography hits the shelves, and we reveal some of the sordid details of The Cleveland Street Scandal – read all about the prince and the rent boys! Sexy boys in this issue include cover star Dmitry Tumash and Francesco Della Vedova. Plus, in the Digital version, you’ll find 50 extra pages of pin-ups and amazing Sydney Mardi Gras photographs.
