Happy Birthday Andy Warhol: 8/6

Andy Warhol was actually rejected by fellow gay NY artists because he he was "too swish and that upset them."

In response to this, Warhol wrote, "There was nothing I could say to that. It was all too true. So I decided I just wasn't going to care, because those were all the things that I didn't want to change anyway, that I didn't think I 'should' want to change... Other people could change their attitudes but not me".

    He was a standout then and a standout now.
