Based on Quentin Crisp’s 1968 autobiography, the once-controversial picture The Naked Civil Servant

(1975) stars Sir John Hurt as Crisp, an outrageous flamboyant gay man who publicly declared his homosexuality during the brutally homophobic and misogynistic England of the 1930s and ’40s — a time when being homosexual was still an offense punishable by imprisonment in Great Britain.
 
Hosted by Larry Ferber, three time Emmy-Nominated television producer and host of The Living Room movie series at FAU.

COMING UP:
Here & Now
Presented in partnership with the Silver Eye Center for Photography
Stonewall National Museum – Wilton Manors Gallery

2157 Wilton Drive, Wilton Manors, FL 33305

On exhibit March 10 – May 1
Originally curated by Rafael Soldi for Silver Eye Center for Photography in Pittsburgh, PA, this show features work from three artists “embarking on physical and emotional journeys to define and discover queerness across the American landscape.” Works by Richard Renaldi, Molly Landreth and Elle Perez will offer for visitors a view of gay life across America. Here and Now will challenge commonly held beliefs about what is gay “normal” and how a new generation of LGBT folks are redefining gay life in America.
