Quentin Crisp

Quentin Crisp (born Denis Charles Pratt; 25 December 1908 – 21 November 1999) was an English writer, humorist and actor.From a conventional suburban background, Crisp wore make-up and painted his nails.

During his teen years he worked briefly as a rent boy.He then spent thirty years as a professional model for life-classes in art colleges.

The interviews he gave about his unusual life attracted great curiosity and he was soon sought after for his personal views on social manners and the cultivation of style.

His one-man stage show was a long-running hit both in Britain and America and he also appeared in films and on T.V.

Crisp defied convention by criticising both gay liberation and Diana, Princess of Wales.
