Quentin Crisp

Quentin Crisp by Mark Kennedy

Remembering the great man, who died in Chorlton, Manchester, thirteen years ago to the day. Crisp was fearless and independent, and lived life exactly as he wished, with wit as his only weapon against a stark and intolerant world. Feted by Warhol and played by John Hurt (and serenaded by Sting but we’ll gloss over that – Gina X’s No GDM trumps An Englishman in New York any day) Denis Charles Pratt, as he was christened, remains an inspiration to us all with his defiant, self-serving individualism. A man who refused to acknowledge gender or convention, he was the ultimate free spirit.

Mr. Crisp has been immortalised by Manchester artists Mark Kennedy and Stewy. The Naked Civil Servant has finally arrived in Manchester’s Gay Village – let’s hope he decides to stay.
