FUCK YEAH james st. james!
James [St James] at 17. Early, early looks. I’d just moved to New York, found that old circus cape at a thrift store on Ave B, and wore it EVERYWHERE. I might still have it somewhere in storage, but it was molting and moth-eaten and just plain filthy in 1984, I’d be terrified to see it now.
Awww. My first (and favorite) boyfriend, Colin. It’s a shame I was such a spoiled brat and ruined everything. We were actually pretty happy for a while. I should call him, see how he is. This was taken on 42nd Street BACK IN THE DAY when it was still pretty rough, boy. I remember it caused quite an uproar when we asked to have the picture in the heart “frame” lol.
My favorite dress ever. Usually worn with a studded jockstrap so I could flash taxi drivers. This picture was taken at Rudolf’s club Quick, which had formerly been Area and NASA.
