Quotes[edit | edit source]

« My number-one piece of advice for any queer person who wants to make art is to just do it. If you are afraid to do it, do it anyway. That requires courage, and if you cannot locate your courage, then either do some work on yourself so you can, or do something else. Being an artist is something you do because you are compelled to make work, not because it will make you famous or rich. I've been making queer work for over 40 years, and just this month I have finally been funded! If you make political work that challenges the status quo don’t expect to be financially rewarded.[3] »
