Yesterday was the anniversary of the birth of Lord Alfred Douglas.
I looked up some of what was written on social media to commemorate the auspicious event. Some highlights:
“remembered as Oscar Wilde’s downfall…”
…a “mean spirited mincing queen intent on self-destruction.” In the end it was Wilde who was destroyed.
Lord Alfred Douglas will go down in gay history as the original “evil queen”.
On days like this it seems clear who the loser of the war over the Wilde narrative was.
Happy birthday, Bosie.
