SPEAKING ILL OF THE DEAD
All this week people have been lamenting the loss of Alexis Arquette, reminiscing about what an exceptional person he was, and it rubbed us the wrong way. He was not particularly nice – especially when he was dressed as a female. Lipstick was his license to be rude and loud and overbearing. Before he died he was thinking about writing a book “outing” everyone gay who was still closeted in Hollywood. At least celebrities he ASSUMED were gay! Early in his cross-dressing days, he was fervently selling stories about his famous family to the tabloids – and he didn’t hold back. No matter how he behaved, his family members were still supportive, and he was very lucky to have them.
