Mr. Q. Crisp, portrayed by his “representative on earth,” John Hurt, in The Naked Civil Servant (a film with Friz Quadrata intertitles):

Old man with blue-rinsed hair in brown jacket, pink shirt, and black ascot tells children: I defy you to do your worst. It can hardly be my worst. Mine has already and often happened to me.
You cannot touch me now. I am one of the stately homos of England.

I took Quentin Crisp to lunch circa 1994.

I really like my pictures; my homosexualist-lock-screens project is what I am most proud of in living memory; this personal Weblog is an absolute cultural treasure.

And, last but not least, I don’t like you, either.
