Define yourself!

“Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself.”

Whew! A person who is still alive to celebrate!

Happy birthday today to the lovely Harvey Fierstein, one of the gayest of gay men in theatre, rights champion and a personal icon of mine... [I have blogged about him before, of course - read my tribute to the man back in 2009.]

So without further ado, here is the great Broadway Queen, on the eve of taking over the role of "Zaza" in La Cage Aux Folles (a show he wrote!) this year, reminiscing about his life:

Harvey Fierstein takes over in La Cage


  1. Love La Cage Aux Folles and Harvey - he looks great as Zaza too - Happy Birthday to a real GREAT x

  2. He also had the best line in 'Independence Day'. Says it all!

  3. He was the only decent thing in Independence Day! "Mother! You gotta get outta town!" Jx
