A man is either free or he is not. There cannot be any apprenticeship for freedom. - Imamu Amiri Baraka
Timothy McVeigh's diary?
Written by David Wojnarowicz - the photo is him as a child. I quote here from someone else -'The artist, writer, photographer, performer,filmmaker, and activist David Wojnarowicz died of AIDS in 1992. He was 37 years old. AIDS was the last of a series of traumasthat Wojnarowicz experienced over the course of his short life.As a child he was sexually and physically abused; during adolescence he survived periods of homelessness and drug use; and as an adult he repeatedly confronted homophobia and AIDS discrimination,one of the most intense episodes ofwhich included the withdrawal of funding by the National Endowment for the Arts for an exhibitionthat featured his photography andwriting. Perhaps because of his intimacy with both physical and psychic suffering, Wojnarowiczwas able to create artwork that wasrenowned for its uncompromising rage and magnificent tenderness.'
