    Resided in New York City

    Called himself ‘the stately homo of England’
    He was flamingly effeminate.
    He dyed his hair purple.
    He dressed as close to female as humanly possible without it being considered drag.
    He said Noël Coward ‘always mistook bitchiness for wit,’ but he often did the same thing himself.
    He angered the gay community by saying his homosexuality was ‘an illness.’
    He portrayed Queen Elizabeth I in a movie.
    His name sounds like a breakfast cereal.

    He inspired Sting’s song ‘Englishman in New York.’
    He came out as gay in the 1930’s, even though he got beat up for it.
    John Hurt played him in a movie.
    He was known for his saucy quips.
    He said: ‘If at first you don’t succeed, failure may be your style.’
    He wasn’t ashamed of who he was.
