Scissor Sisters’ instructional video for Let’s Have a Kiki (posted on YT today!)
This is the most awesome, beautiful, gay thing I have seen in a long, long time, and once sat in the 4th row of a Tori Amos concert in the 90’s, so I’ve seen some amazing gayness in my day.
“Julie D’Aubigny was a 17th-century bisexual French opera singer and fencing master who killed or wounded at least ten men in life-or-death duels, performed nightly shows on the biggest and most highly-respected opera stage in the world, and once took the Holy Orders just so that she could sneak into a convent and bang a nun. If nothing in that sentence at least marginally interests you, I have no idea why you’re visiting this website.”
I could literally fingerbang a girl in the street but because I’d do it with glitter nail polish and bracelets clanging, I won’t be viewed as truly, purely gay.
Now little Hans was always strange
Wearing women’s underthings
His father beat him but he wouldn’t change
He ran off with a man one day
Now his lingerie is all the rage
In the black on every page
His father proudly calls his name
Down there in the Reeperbahn.
One day I will illustrate every single one of Tom Waits’ perfect, perfect songs.
And there’s the heart, again, lesbian subtext. But the heart with the stake through it, let’s go stake some vampires in the heart. And yet, it’s this kind of romantic image at the same time. ‘Cause it’s almost a seduction, you know, Faith is very sexy and she’s saying ‘come play with me’. Doug Petrie, Bad Girls.
