- Cinema Paradiso (1988)
In 9th grade, this film changed the way I look at cinema forever. I owe it a lot, I need to watch it again soon.
Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Amber Valletta, Shalom Harlow, & Christy Turlington by Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia, May 1993
A friend once said that I looked at the world differently. I would take that as a compliment. #TBT #instagay #gay #selfie
"To understand art is to kill art. It was not made to be understood, it does not exist to be understood. Do you understand love? Do you understand the sky? To feel art - to feel it break your heart and make you unreasonably happy, to feel its hope despite its hopelessness, to feel its anger and destructiveness - this is art. Let it take you over and let it overwhelm you. Let it hurt you. Let it change you. Let it stab you in the chest and make you bleed, let it make you high and bring you down. Let it make you want to change the world, and let it tell you that you can’t. Let it make you feel, let it make you feel, let it make you feel."
"The world is divided between kids who grow up wanting to be their parents and those like us, who grow up wanting to be anything but. Neither group ever succeeds."

Princess Diana and Elton John at the funeral of their friend, Gianni Versace, in July of 1997.
After a falling out Diana refused to speak to Elton John. According to him it was at the funeral where they patched things up. She had come alone and gone up to the pew he was sitting in and asked, “Is it okay if I sit next to you?” She comforted him as he cried and they started talking again. Elton says he is so grateful because had they not been reconciled when she died a month later he would have never forgiven himself.
