Remembering a Raconteur

Updated: 3 days ago

21 years ago we lost Quentin Crisp, the notorious British raconteur. Known for his wit and candour, Crisp grew up in a very homophobic time, yet decided early on to devote his life to “making the existence of homosexuality abundantly clear to the world's aborigines” often at great risk to his well being.

Sting’s “An Englishman in New York” was written and two films have been produced about his extraordinary life.

During his infamous live show, “An Evening with Quentin Crisp,” he advises, “Never keep up with the Joneses. Drag them down to your level. It's cheaper.”

–Quentin Crisp (British, 1908–1999)


Artist: Ella Guru
